I have been to Morocco a couple of times and I always leave wanting to go back. It’s so easy to get there from Europe but it feels like you’re a world away.

If you look at Morocco on a map, you’ll realise how close it is to countries in Western Europe. Don’t think that just because you’re on a ‘European holiday’ that you can’t pop in for a visit.Morocco is a blend of Africa and the Middle East – and there’s also a bit of influence from Europe as well. You’ll find impressive mosques, ancient marketplaces, street performers and boutique accommodation.

If you’re looking for a short holiday, then heading to one of Morocco’s cities like Marrakech or Fez is a perfect break. But if you spend more time in the country, you’ll discover a fascinating culture with glorious art and architecture.

My stories cover various parts of Morocco so have a look through them and you’ll see different areas to explore.

THINGS TO DO IN MARRAKECH >> EXPLORE THE MAZE < <

The most tourist-friendly city in Morocco is probably Marrakech. There’s lots to see and do but it can also be a bit overwhelming. To help you get your bearings, here are my suggestions for the best things to see.

THINGS TO SEE IN RABAT >> THE MODERN CAPITAL < <

Morocco’s capital city is not normally the first place travellers think of visiting. It just doesn’t have the old world allure as some of the ancient medinas, does it? But don’t let that turn you off. There’s still a lot to see here.

MOROCCO’S WORLD HERITAGE >> SEE ALL THE UNESCO SITES < <

There are nine World Heritage Sites across Morocco, From ancient medinas, to European fortresses, and even a Roman outpost. There’s lots to see so here’s my advice for visiting each of them.
