Rabat is Morocco’s capital and its’ second Imperial city. With its tree lined avenues, public gardens and peaceful residential areas the city exudes an air of elegance and good living. Less dramatic than Fez, less exotic than Marrakech and less turbulent than Casablanca it is calm and airy with a provincial feel. Visit the Archaeological museum where many treasures of the Roman City are stored. The father and grandfather of the present King – Mohamed V and Hassan II, are buried in the mausoleum next to the sister to the Giralda in Seville – the Hassan Tower. Walk through the Oudaya’s gardens or take in the view over the Bou Regreg River, Rabat is well worth a visit.
