Thanks to Ryanair winter offers, with just 40 euros we fly to Morocco from Bergamo airport. Land of colors and perfumes, it leads to the deep traditions of the medinas and souqs where you will be catapulted into an almost surreal world.

"This evening's sunset is something unique and unforgettable".

The first stage takes us to the heart of Marrakech, Jamaa el Fna, for centuries open-air theater of storytellers, street shows, snake charmers and local street food. In the distance, the great minaret of the Mosque (Kutubiyya) marks the hours of the day with the prayers of the muezzin until the sun goes down. The medina, an intricate labyrinth of souq, is a continuous alternation of craft shops, fruit and dessert carts, tailors and multicolored slippers shops and much more... Marrakech is also famous for its palm groves, where you can experience the traditional camel tour for a few hours. If you have time, you can extend your visit to the new part of the city, including resorts, luxury buildings and townhouses.

Moving to Casablanca, the economic capital of the country, several Moroccan friends advised us to dedicate two hours to visit the great Hassan II mosque. What to say? Formidable!
The structure is the perfect example of symbiosis between nature and human construction; overlooking 2/3 on the Atlantic Ocean, with a minaret of 210 meters (the highest in the world) and the ability to accommodate more than 25 thousand people inside is truly a must see.

Next to the Medina, you can visit the small fortified citadel facing the sea: the Kasba of Oudaïa. Once a military strategic point to face attacks of the Berbers, today an excellent vantage point from where to admire the Atlantic Ocean, supreme sunsets and the nearby city of Salé.

Then we pass to Rabat, where the first stop is the Tower of Hassan, a work entirely abandoned at the death of the caliph in 1199. It should have been the largest mosque in the world with its 200 columns but today we can admire the great minaret and columns of different height, taken by assault by tourists who climb them to take pictures. Next to the Medina, you can visit the small fortified citadel facing the sea: the Kasba of Oudaïa.

Moving on to Fez, the city, along with Marrakech, which is preferred for its authenticity. A focal point of art and craftsmanship, where even the most astute traveler will be lost in the alleys of its medina. Fez is also very famous for its tanneries, there are almost 70, hidden between the houses and the streets; here the skins are treated, colored and dried in the sun before the working process. In addition to leather, Fez is also very famous for its fabrics and carpets entirely made with the frame. Let's not forget that the mastery of the artisans reaches its peak with the processing of clay for the composition of mosaics, vases and foodstuffs of the highest quality.

Here we are finally in Chefchaouen, the blue pearl of Morocco, made famous in recent years, by social and travel documentaries. Considered one of the new most visited destinations in 2017-18, it is really a must for evert travel on the road in Moroccan territory. The only advice is to get lost in the blue lanes of the medina!

Here we are finally in Chefchaouen, the blue pearl of Morocco, made famous in recent years, by social and travel documentaries. Considered one of the new most visited destinations in 2017-18, it is really a must for evert travel on the road in Moroccan territory. The only advice is to get lost in the blue lanes of the medina! In respect of the Moroccan traditions and culture, it is advisable to fully integrate with the customs of the country. Walk in the souq with appropriate clothes, nothing vulgar and flashy. More and more tourists, taken by the rush of social shots, are wandering half uncovered and disrespectful. Smile and always be nice even in the most delicate situations. Haggle. The number one rule of business. Here it is not offensive, as it could be in Italy. Here, it is part of the game of buying and selling process, a real tradition. To move between cities, the distances are definitely to be considered despite the roads are perfect. A private driver is the easiest way to get around. Obviously, considering the many hours of walking to visit the medinas, a protective and comfortable footwear is a must.
