The medina of Fès el-Bali (Old Fès) is the largest living medieval Islamic city in the world. The labyrinthine of narrow streets is crammed with shops, restaurants, workshops, mosques and madrassas will make you feel completely out of touch with the western world.

Marrakesh

Marrakesh is the center of Moroccan tourism and also one of Morocco's imperial cities. Today, this almost a thousand year old city is the commercial centre for the High Atlas and the Moroccan Sahara. The "must see" place of your Marrakesh sightseeing is Djemaa el Fna (central square) - the busy heart of tradittional Marrakesh and The Medina.

Agadir

A southern resort that attracts large numbers of tourists due to the warm winter weather, sandy beach and resort hotels - perfect setting to spend nice, relaxing vacations. The city itself is not especially attractive and it lacks the traditional charm of other cities in Morocco.

Essaouira

A laid-back seaside town at the Atlantic Ocean where strong winds provide good conditions for windsurfers. Worth to explore is its historic medina, full of art galleries. Worth to see is the annual International Gnaoua and World Music Festival, which takes place in June.

Tanger

This cosmopolitan city that offers vibrant nightlife was once known as the Pearl of the Mediterranean. It's the closest major African city to Europe but it's not representative of all of Morocco. A fascinating and interesting mix of north Africa, Spain, and France.
