Silversea Luxury Cruises To CASABLANCA

CASABLANCA

Casablanca is Morocco's most modern city, and various groups of people call it home: hardworking Berbers who came north from the Souss Valley to make their fortune; older folks raised on French customs during the protectorate; devoted Muslims; wealthy business executives in the prestigious neighborhoods of California and Anfa; new and poor arrivals from the countryside, living in conspicuous shantytowns; and thousands of others from all over the kingdom who have found jobs here. There is also a fair-size expat population, including many French people. View more

The city has its own stock exchange, and working hours tend to transcend the relaxed pace kept by the rest of Morocco.True to its name—casa blanca in Spanish (white house), which, in turn, is Dar el-Beida in Arabic—Casablanca is a conglomeration of white buildings. The present city, known colloquially as "Casa" or "El Beida," was only founded in 1912. It lacks the abundance of ancient monuments that resonate in Morocco's other major cities; however, there are still some landmarks, including the famous Hassan II Mosque.

Hassan II Mosque

Depart the pier for the short drive to the awe-inspiring Hassan II Mosque. The second-largest mosque in the world, it can hold 25,000 people. This magnificent building is overwhelming in its grandeur, and exquisite in its detail. The foundations are built partly on land, and partly over the water. Some of the ceilings in this sacred building are over 200 feet (about 70 meters) tall, and part of it has a retractable roof. It is the only mosque in Morocco where non-Muslims are allowed to enter inside. After an exterior photo stop here, re-board your coach and drive to a vantage point for a unique view of the Hassan II Mosque. From this spot, the city can be seen along the coastline and the towering Hassan II Mosque appears to float on the sea.


New Medina, Anfa and Mohammed V Square

Next, head to the New Medina, or 'Habous Quarter', for a guided stroll through this historic part of the city, which is lined with souks, shops and a warren of alleyways. Your drive continues through Anfa, an elegant residential district perched high on a hill overlooking the city. Anfa was the original site of Casablanca, and is highlighted by main avenues, green parks and magnificent villas in a variety of architectural styles. A photo stop is then made at Mohammed V Square. Here, see examples of many Moslem-styled buildings, a monumental fountain, public garden and the statue of Marshal Lyautey.


Rabat, Le Ziryab Restaurant and Lunch

Leaving Mohammed V Square, re-board your coach and transfer to Rabat, the capital city of Morocco. Nestled on the Atlantic coastal plain, Rabat is a modern city with wide boulevards, gardens and white buildings. A far cry from the hectic warrens of the other Imperial cities of Marrakech and Fes, Rabat is no less steeped in history, with its origins dating from the 7th century. This enchanting city is home to many historic monuments, and has some superbly preserved relics of its Moorish past. Upon arrival in Rabat, proceed for lunch at Le Ziryab, one of the finest restaurants in the city.


Mohammed V Mausoleum and Kasbah Oudayas Medina

After lunch, re-board your coach and drive to the must-see Mohammed V Mausoleum, which contains the tombs of the late Moroccan king and his two sons. This spectacular site is an architectural marvel, and monument to a great ruler. Your last stop is at the traditional Kasbah Oudayas Medina for Moroccan tea and refreshments. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 1.5-hour drive back to the pier.

Casablanca & Wine Tasting at Domaine Ouled Thaleb

Morocco's economic capital and most modern city, Casablanca is endowed with a scenic coastline on the Atlantic Ocean.


Hassan II Mosque and Panoramic Casablanca

Our tour of this bustling metropolis begins with a stop at the famous Central Market and scenic drive through Mohamed V square in the heart of the city, with lovely French colonial architecture, and from there we will stop by Mohamed V Square the heart of the city, standing between the two contrasting sides of this Metropolis: The Medina or old Town and the elegant modern section with its sky scuppers and large boulevards.

We drive to one of Casablanca's most modern structures, the Hassan II mosque. Inaugurated in 1993, the massive mosque features the world's highest minaret, and room for 25,000 worshipers inside and another 80,000 outside. The mosque is the brainchild and crowning achievement of King Hassan II, and it is the world's third-largest mosque, built to commemorate the former king's 60th birthday. It is the only mosque in Morocco where non-Muslims can enter. This law dates to a French governor who passed it to ensure that none of his countrymen inadvertently offended the local Muslim communities by entering mosques without following the correct protocol - this law still stands today.

Domaine Ouled Thaleb and Wine Tasting

From here we drive to the Domaine Ouled Thaleb. The domaine was established in 1923. Located in the Zenata coastal appellations between Casablanca and Rabat, Ouled Thaleb led the renewal of the Moroccan wine industry in the 1990's. While most of their fruit is Estate grown, Ouled Thaleb partners with neighbouring growers in order to produce classic style wines under the direction of winemaker, Stephane Marriot. Here we have the pleasure of meeting the owner of the vineyard who will be our host for the tour of the vineyard and the tastings. The tour will include, visiting the caves, production areas, and a small portion of the actual growing area, before settling in for a comprehensive tasting of several of Domain Thalvin best offerings.

Set in an old, courtyard-style mansion built against the walls of the Old Medina, this restaurant and piano bar is filled with architectural and decorative details reminiscent of the film.

Enchanting Marrakech

Experience one of the most vibrant and exotic cities in Morocco during this panoramic, full-day excursion to Marrakech, the Pink City.


Casablanca, High Atlas Mountains, Marrakech, Medina, Gueliz

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 3.5-hour drive to Marrakesh, with a comfort stop en route. Along the way, pass through the approximately 13,671-foot-high (about 4,167-metre-high) High Atlas Mountains (Grand Atlas Mountains). Nestled near the foothills of the snow-capped Atlas Mountains, Marrakech is a pearl polished by a rich history, and its tradition of hospitality has for centuries been known to welcome visitors. Marrakech is divided into two distinct parts; the Medina, the Old City, and the new European modern district known as Gueliz (Ville Nouvelle). The Medina is full of intertwining, narrow passageways and local shops full of character. By contrast, Gueliz plays host to modern restaurants, fast food chains and big brand stores.


Koutoubia Mosque, Dar Si Said Museum

Upon arrival at Marrakesh, your first stop is at the Koutoubia Mosque, an icon of Marrakech. Koutoubia's minaret went on to inspire the architects of the Giralda of Seville and Hassan Tower of Rabat. This square tower of finely-worked dressed stone is approximately 252 feet (about 77 meters) tall, including its lantern. Built in the 12th century, the Koutoubia minaret is the most perfect Islamic religious structure in North Africa. This famous landmark dominates the local skyline, and can easily be spotted from all of Marrakech. Afterward, head to the Dar Si Said Museum. A large, palatial home built in the second-half of the 19th century, the museum is one of the most impressive buildings in Marrakech.


Moroccan Lunch, Bahia Palace, Horse-Carriage-Ride, Majorelle Gardens

Leaving the museum, proceed on-foot for a Moroccan lunch at a local restaurant. After lunch, a visit is made to the late-19th-century Bahia Palace. The beauty of the Bahia Palace makes it a remarkable example of 19th-century Eastern architecture, and offers an accurate depiction of how the privileged lived during the 19th century in the Imperial city. The use of marble, stucco and mosaics predominates in the apartments, which open onto courtyards filled with fountains and plant life. Afterward, board a horse-carriage for the ride to the Majorelle Garden. Lovely, shaded grounds graced by exotic trees and plants combined with the appeal of the museum make Majorelle Garden a favourite destination for visitors and locals alike.



Jemaa el-Fnaa Square

Leaving the Gardens, your final stop is at bustling Jemaa el-Fnaa Square, where a multitude of street-artists and stalls of dried fruit or freshly-pressed orange juice appear before you. The multitude of small restaurants that take over its centre starting in the early-evening contribute to the aroma of its surroundings. No one really knows how it came into being, but, over the years, this square has become the beating heart of Marrakech. Here, fire-eaters, mime artists, snake-charmers and street musicians perform at every turn. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 3.75-hour drive back to the pier, with a boxed dinner and comfort stop en route.


Please note: This tour involves an extensive amount of walking, at times over uneven surfaces, with a few steps to negotiate to embark/disembark the coach and horse-carriage.

Guests must be at least 21 years old to be served alcoholic beverages. Guests weighing over 300 pounds (about 136 kilograms) cannot participate on this tour. Guests are prohibited from taking photos of military personnel without their consent. Guests are advised to mind their belongings at all times, particularly at tourist points-of-interest or crowded places. The distance between the pier and Marrakech is approximately 3.5 hours in each direction. The tour sequence may vary.


Local Flavours & Cooking Demo

Discover the secrets to preparing a variety of Moroccan specialities during this memorable, half-day cooking excursion with lunch.


Hassan II Mosque, Corniche, Atlantic Ocean and Anfa

Depart the pier for the short drive to the awe-inspiring Hassan II Mosque. The second-largest mosque in the world, it can hold 25,000 people. This magnificent building is overwhelming in its grandeur, and exquisite in its detail. The foundations are built partly on land, and partly over the water. Some of the ceilings in this sacred building are over 200 feet (about 70 meters) tall, and part of it has a retractable roof. It is the only mosque in Morocco where non-Muslims are allowed to enter inside.


Anfa and Central Market

Following a photo stop at the Hassan II Mosque, re-board your coach and continue on for a scenic drive along the Corniche adjoining the Atlantic Ocean en route to Anfa. An elegant residential district perched on a hill overlooking the city, Anfa was the original site of Casablanca, and is highlighted by main avenues, green parks and magnificent villas in a variety of architectural styles. Leaving Anfa, a visit is made to the bustling Central Market, home to a cavalcade of colour, charm, street musicians, a fish market, scenic handicrafts, and spices.


Umayyas Restaurant, Cooking Demo and Lunch

Next, proceed to the exclusive and renowned Umayyas restaurant. Your arrival is greeted with refreshments and pastries, followed by an informative and interactive cooking demonstration. Learn the spices and methods used in the creation of a variety of Moroccan entrees and desserts. After your cooking demo, you are served a lunch consisting of the traditional Moroccan fare you have helped to prepare. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 30-minute drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of walking and standing for approximately 601 yards (about 550 metres), with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach.

Portuguese Town of el Jadida

Explore the Portuguese old towns or 'Medinas' of El Jadida and Azemmour which exude the charm of yesteryear in a collection of narrow streets, beautiful buildings, gates to mysterious passageways and a mixture of Portuguese, Arab, Andalusian and Berber architectural styles.


Azemmour Village

Depart the pier for the drive to Azemmour village. A stop will be made en-route to view the outside of the Hassan II Mosque before continuing to Azemmour village via the charming coastal road. From the entrance of Azemmour you will see the stunning panoramic view of the whitewashed buildings clustered on the banks of the Oum Rabiaa River.


Morocco's Portuguese Town El Jadida

Next, continue to Morocco's Portuguese town - 'Mazagan' - also known as El Jadida meaning 'new one' to the Arabs. This new name was first used just after the departure of the Portuguese. Explore El Jadida on foot accompanied by your tour guide and experience one of the first settlements created in Africa by Portuguese explorers on their way to India. The most interesting part of El Jadida is the Old Portuguese quarter and the underground cistern, an immense square hall supported by 25 columns and lit only by a circular opening in the roof. The Portuguese built it originally as an arsenal but in the 16th century, they transformed it into a cistern. A mark on the wall records the water level at that time. It was discovered in 1916 by chance, having been sealed off for hundreds of years. Orson Wells used it in his film 'Othello' and also many other directors have filmed in this dramatic area.


Lastly, enjoy a short refreshment stop before re-boarding the coach to return to the pier.


Please note: This tour requires a minimal amount of walking, approximately 3.4 mile (1.2 km). This tour is not recommended for guests who utilise a wheelchair. Modest attire is highly recommended - covered shoulders, long pants and comfortable shoes.
