Casablanca – Finding Casablanca
Morocco is an enduring image of culture that spans civilization. You can picture towering fortress walls embellished with a skyline of minarets. Old Cities are punctuated with historic markets. Spices line the alleyways and the sweet scent of honey brings it all together. From the Romans to the French, the country has enveloped cultures but also held onto its unique heritage that rose out of the landscape. Mountains ramble and oceans swell. The desert sweeps and the markets tempt. Soon you will land with the beauty of Morocco at your fingertips.
Arrive in Casablanca and find an energetic modern city enriched by its past. Wide boulevards are lined with palm trees. The sea breeze mixes with the sweet aroma of the trees. The ocean brushes against the edges of the city and sparkles in the dwindling sunlight. The silhouette of Mosque Hassan II sits on the edge of the Atlantic. The fountain in Place Mohamed V spritzes the air with a rejuvenating mist. You can even find the Jewish Museum in a suburban oasis encompassed by lush gardens. It is the only Jewish museum in the Islamic world. The Corniche is the beachfront district and displays contemporary lavishness, filled with the locals that are ready to be seen.
Modern hotels create the skyline and restaurants emanate traditional aromas with a hint of international influence. The water hits the shore’s risen wall. The beach is paved with golden pebbles. The district of Safi is a port whose importance dates back to the Roman Empire. The water is calm and sapphire beneath the imposing Portuguese fortress remains. The 16th century fortress watches over the port and the city with regal flare. Your private transfer meets you at the airport and takes you to a luxurious hotel near the city’s spirited heart. The city is enthusiastic and modern but allows its heritage to inform its future.
