MODERN MOROCCO WITH AN OLD SOUL

The gateway to Morocco’s exotic interior and the Imperial Cities of Rabat and Marrakech, Casablanca is a modern city swathed in rich history and vintage romance. Contemporary commercial and industrial buildings juxtapose against narrow cobbled streets, colorful bazaars, and awe-inspiring minarets in the country’s largest city.

An important trading center, Casablanca has passed though many hands as a colonial stronghold for the Romans, Portuguese, and French, absorbing these influences while maintaining its position as the economic heart of the country into its modern independence. Hollywood scenes may paint Casablanca as a dusky, far-off destination, but today the bustling metropolis is the most progressive and cosmopolitan city in Morocco.

A vision in contrasts, modern neighborhoods host whitewashed houses along broad, tree-lined avenues, while the walled Old Medina presents narrow alleys and traditional architecture. Walk cobbled streets to discover hand-crafted pottery and charming cafes. Insert yourself into the hustle and bustle of modern Casablanca with a picnic in sunny Octagon Square. Whether you’re searching for cultural immersion or modern convenience, Casablanca offers it all—and then some.
