Casablanca - Picturing Casablanca
Casablanca is a striking main gateway into Morocco. The city bolsters modern vigor and energy with classic architecture. The past is simultaneously present in the stunning Art Nouveau structures that harken back to French colonialism, and yet absent in the modern chic restaurants of the seaside Corniche, the beachfront district filled with lavish luxury hotels and elegant beach clubs. Your private transfer greets you at the airport before escorting you to a hotel located in the heart of the city. Palm trees line the wide avenues in the city center. The soft breeze carries the scent of the Atlantic Ocean.
The sounds of the city are vivacious. Art galleries showcase local and international artists in floor to ceiling display windows lining the Rue Jaafer el Barmaki Avenue. Your Morocco itinerary begins with your guide meeting you at your hotel and eagerly taking you out to the city streets, venturing to the Hassan II Mosque. The sunlight reflects off of the azure water. The minaret stands nearly 690 feet tall, making it the world’s tallest. It is easy to see the majesty in the mosque’s architectural design and its setting on the coastline. The current brushes the water against the rock-lined shores. One of the most elegant elements of the mosque is the prayer room floor that is made of glass. When worshippers kneel, they face the gentle turquoise of the Atlantic.
