On a vacation in Rabat, a World Heritage Site and Morocco's capital, you can discover the city's long and rich history while enjoying a laidback atmosphere, less touristy than in the booming Casablanca and Marrakech.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Museum Mohamed VI of Modern and Contemporary Art and Jardin Zoologique de Rabat. Visit Kasbah des Oudaias and Chellah for their historical value. Get out of town with these interesting Rabat side-trips: Casablanca (Spas & Wellness, Quartier Habous, & more). And it doesn't end there: admire the masterpieces at La Villa des Arts, get lost in a book at Librairie le 3eme Millenaire, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Ryad Mosque, and admire the landmark architecture of Hassan Tower.
