Medieval cities and rugged landscapes

Although only a short flight from Europe, Morocco is a different world. Its cities overlooked by mosques and minarets are packed with mazy markets and middle eastern spices. In Fez we explored one of the finest inhabited medieval cities in the world, whereas Marrakech melded old souks with fine new restaurants and lively squares.

Yet in contrast to its bustling cities, our road trip uncovered a slower more beautiful Morocco. Of rural Berber villages, towering Atlas mountains, gorges of red rock and Saharan dunes under starry skies.

Many are put off by safety concerns. But don’t be. Morocco is a safe destination and driving is easier than you could imagine. So here’s all you need to know for your own trip to this remarkable country.
