Save Place
Toubkal, Morocco
Climbing Jbel Toubkal, the highest mountain in Africa not named Kilimanjaro, is a surprisingly convenient and doable adventure if you're based in Marrakech and looking to see the High Atlas (and burn some calories along the way!). You'll probably...
Save Place
D.S.Abdelaziz, Marrakesh 40000, Morocco
Getting lost in the souk, and taking a chance by following a local kid. Ended up at an 11th century tannery way off the beaten track. Relieved to make it back, with a camel-hide pouf, and not having vanished in a lime pit.

Rue Yves St Laurent By A-Maps، Marrakech 40000, Morocco
In 1923, the artist Jacques Majorelle acquired a four-acre plot of land just outside the center of Marrakech. Inspired by numerous travels around the country to paint scenes of village life, and funded by painting more illustrious portraits such...
Save Place
Errachidia, Morocco
It's a classic. Drive 5 hours to the dunes of Merzouga, check in one of the hotels there, hop on a camel, ride, enjoy sunset, drink mint tea and go to sleep. Been there, done that. Boring! But is it, really? Can such a fabulous thing become so...
Save Place
Quartier Ain Noqbi, Fès, Morocco
Some travelers are exhausted by the haggling in the souks of Morocco, by the barely-organized chaos of the medinas. In Fes, the stunning mosaic tile creations that are so typical all over the country can be bought directly from the artisans who...
Save Place
El Keddane, Fes, Morocco
Deep in the maze that is the city of Fes, lies Dar Anebar. It is both a restaurant and a Riad. With a traditional courtyard that has a fountain and multiple dining rooms off the main area, there are plenty of "nooks and crannies" hiding delightful...
Save Place
Fes, Morocco
The plaza of Place Seffarine, dominated by the entrance to the al-Qarawiyin Library and a sturdy old tree, is one of the most pleasing areas in Fes. As you approach, you’ll hear the sound of the copper beaters tap, tap, tapping away....
Save Place
Fes El Bali, Fes, Morocco
Many local artisans live and work in the seldom-visited Al Andalus neighborhood of Fes El Bali, the old medina. Among them are the wood carvers who daily ply their craft in rustic and simple surroundings yet produce the highly artistic and...
Save Place
Chefchaouen, Morocco
Ah, the jalaba - one of the best souvenirs you can bring home from Morocco. A jalaba (djellaba/jellaba) is a traditional Berber robe with long sleeves & a pointy hood (known as a qob and often used as an extra pocket for carrying small items home...
Save Place
Chefchaouen, Morocco
Just outside the entrance to the Kasbah, in the old medina of the town of Chefchaouen (Morocco's famed "Blue City") is a lively square rimmed with trees and cobalt blue benches. Not unlike the Bathesda Fountain in New York City, if one sits in...
Save Place
Chefchaouen, Morocco
I traveled to the gem Chefchaouen in 2007 with six peers from my study abroad program. Half the excitement of Chefchaouen is getting there – a ferry from southern Spain across the strait of Gibraltar to Africa, a walk across the border to Morocco...
Save Place
35 Rue du Chevalier de la Barre, 75018 Paris, France
At the summit of Montmartre, the highest point in the city, you'll find the Basilica de Sacré-Cœur. Contrasting with the Gothic churches like Notre-Dame, the Romano-Byzantine architecture is both beautiful inside and out. While...
