Golden Shores of Casablanca
Casablanca is a bustling city on the Atlantic coast of Morocco. Wide avenues pave the city center, lined with the rustling leaves of palm trees. In Place Mohammed V, neo-Moorish government buildings border the square. Elements of a French colonial past shimmer against the contemporary culture of art galleries and seaside cafes. Your private transfer greets you at Mohammed V Airport and takes you to your hotel situated in the heart of the vibrant city. The art nouveau architecture of the Theatre Rialto lights up the corner of Rue Mohammed El Qori. The sea breeze carries a sweet aroma. You can see the towering minaret of Hassan II Mosque rising over the shoreline, more than 656 feet in the air. When you arrive at your hotel, you have a friendly welcome from the staff and an offer of mint tea to help you settle into the city.
