Casablanca

This privately guided tour of Casablanca in Morocco can be tailored to your particular interests. We firstly suggest beginning at the Hassan II Mosque. It is the third-largest mosque in the world, after those in Mecca and Medina. It can hold 25,000 worshippers and features a huge 210m minaret. The artisanship on the display is fascinating – hand-carved stone and wood, marble floors, exquisite zellij (ceramic tiling) and guided cedar ceilings. Next, it’s time for tea. Head to Sqala which is housed in an 18th-century bastion on the edge of the old medina. Sit in the garden and have a mint tea, coffee or a pastry. You then head into the medina. It dates from the 19th century and isn’t as bewildering as those in Marrakech or Fez, but interesting nonetheless. In the evening, and if the film ‘Casablanca’ tickles your imagination, head to Rick’s Cafe for dinner.
