Thanks to Casablanca’s climate, the city is the perfect destination for a holiday all year round. It is a city of contrast and a must on any itinerary for Morocco, and being the economic capital of the country, visiting Casablanca is a truly enriching experience. Visitors can stroll through the Old Medina (old city) and move on to the Mohammed V square which is a majestically built complex around a fountain, and where the strong influence of French and Moorish architecture come together.

Holidaymakers will equally be wowed by the Royal Palace and the famous Hassan II mosque, the second largest in the world after Mecca which features stunning architecture and craftsmanship. For the more tranquil experience, there are sandy beaches and open green spaces lined with palm trees, as well as arcades, pergolas and cafes where tourists can unwind and watch the world go by. For the more active, there is a whole host of activities, whether its golf, horse riding or sailing. Transportation links are also good for those wishing to explore other areas of Morocco including Fes, Rabat and Marrakesh. Casablanca is a real gem of North Africa and a city which offers the perfect blend of culture and relaxation.
