Departure from Rabat to Asilah. This laid-back, artists’ town is dominated by pristine whitewashed houses and a lively cultural life. The medina of Asilah has restored streets bordered by white houses with green and blue shutters, making it a visual delight. The mixture of Roman, Spanish and Portuguese influence is evident everywhere in Asilah. Bastions, towers and imposing ramparts offer the setting for delightful seaside walks and restaurants which are famous for their seafood dishes. Lunch in Asilah and continuation to Tangier.
Overnight: Tangier hotel.
Day 2: Tangier - Tetouan (BD)
09.00: Visit of the momentous Hassan II, a Great Mosque in Casablanca, a magnificent art work of architecture and Moroccan handicraft, followed by a panoramic tour along the seaside road, the harbor area, onto the city center, and the Habbous district. Time at leisure for lunch, then tour of the old medina and on to Rabat, the Imperial Garden Capital of Morocco. Brief orientation tour before check in at hotel.
After breakfast in your hotel, you'll go for a tour of Tangier. This city has some worthwhile sights and can be seen in a day, which means we'll be spending only a few hours here. Cap Spartel (where the Mediterranean meets the Atlantic) and Hercules' Cave are some of the highlights. Lunch in Tetouan. Following, Tetouan is known as "The White Pigeon". A largely white painted mediumsized city with dominantly Andalusian Flavor. Moroccan, Islamic, Phenician, European and Spanish (Andalusian) architecture are harmoniously merged together. The Big Mosque, Spanish Cathedral, Babu Saidi, The Kasbah The Medina and Hassan II Square are proof examples, that make of Tetouan a historical melting pot of cultures.The Royal Palace, a 17th century building, at Place Hassan II (Hassan II Square) is itself a reflection of the Hispano-Moresque architecture. The palace is closed to public entry but its main ornate gate Bab Er-Rouah can give you a mental idea of what it's beyond and photos are allowed to be taken. Place Hassan II, where the old and new town meet, is the dynamic heart of Tetouan.
Overnight: Tetaoun hotel.
Day 3: Tangier – Tetouan - Chefchaouen (BD)
Chefchaouen is one of the most spectacular places which is highly frequented by artists. Begin your city tour of Chefchaouen. Stop at Al Makhzen market, a combination of an ancient Moroccan market and a very modern one. The tour will take you to visit the famous Ras El Ma spring that gushes out of the mountain inside the stone walls of the town at the north-east exit of the medina. This cool valley offers a stunning view over the valley. After that, you will enjoy a delicious Moroccan lunch at the Casa Hassan. After lunch you’ll visit the Uta El Hamam square, easily the heart of this Moroccan city. The main attractions are the Kasbah and the central mosque along with many “cafes” where you can sit out, enjoy the sun and just watch people pass. It is one of the best places to relax after all those sightseeing. You’ll have time to explore the city’s small and attractive medina and shop at the souks. The charming medina is characterized by its typical blue Andalusian architecture including arches, small squares and fountains. Chefchaouen is not only known for its exquisite local Rifi blankets, but also for its carpets and rugs, pottery, leather goods and woodwork. Diner and overnight at hotel.
