Mirroring the rattling rickshaws of Marrakesh, Morocco's metropolitan labyrinths rise and fall as they wind through the country's medieval past and trendy present. And while the exotic North African locale is famed for its spices and carpets, a trip to its towering kasbahs reveals a spellbinding selection of charms—just waiting to be discovered. Immerse yourself in a pageant of bohemian mystique with a 13-day Escape to Morocco for one guest on select dates*, courtesy of Gate 1 Travel.
Your flight from NYC touches down in Casablanca where, after transferring to your hotel in Rabat, you'll have the rest of the day at your leisure to stroll Morocco's capital city before getting acquainted with your tour guide. Later, explore the Royal Palace and the ancient ruins of Chellah, the Oudaya Kasbah, and the Hassan Tower—the city is teeming with history.
"Rabat has been the capital since the beginning of the French protectorate in 1912," says Frommer's. "It's a pleasant city cooled by the afternoon Atlantic sea breeze and lacking the general noise and bustle of Morocco's other major cities."
In Fez, after a short bus tour, you'll have time to wander through the city that served as Morocco's capital for more than 400 years. Famous for its tanneries and the Fes el Bali Medina, Fez boasts a distinct culture all its own.
After breakfast the next morning, a journey through the montane cedar woods of the middle Atlas Mountains takes you to Erfoud via Errachidia and the lush Ziz Valley, home to the Ksar Abbar ruins. Later, you'll tour Ouarzazate, a desert city at the gates of the Sahara, and Marrakesh, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
"Marrakesh is Morocco's most intoxicating city," says Fodor's. "Ever since Morocco's Jewel of the South became a trading and resting place on the ancient caravan routes from Timbuktu, the city has barely paused for breath."
Your journey ends with a half-day of sightseeing in Casablanca, where you'll tour the exterior of the Hassan II Mosque, Mohamed V Square, the Habous quarter, and the Notre Dame de Lourdes cathedral. And like its mythical magic carpet rides, Morocco will send you soaring through a whole new world.

"A land of spice-scented mystery and medieval kasbahs, Morocco puts your senses on high alert. The country is a magic carpet ride of extremes, from the searing Sahara to the snow-dusted High Atlas Mountains..."-- Frommer's
