The main cities of Morocco

Different in their own way, Morocco’s big cities are home to Morocco’s finest architecture, the most interesting museums - and the best shopping.

Marrakech

Most travellers come to Marrakech hoping to find exotic-looking people, ornate palaces and treasure-filled souks. They want to take a magic carpet ride into the world of the Arabian Nights - and to be able to buy the carpet afterwards. Amazingly, Marrakech manages to live up to this fantasy.

Taroudant

The trip from Marrakech to Taroudant over the Atlas mountains is one of Africa’s great road journeys. A winding, vertiginous climb leads to the 2,092-metre high Tizi n Test pass, from where you can see the plains of the pre-Sahara stretching as far as the horizon.

We know Morocco intimately

Max Lawrence - MD Lawrence of Morocco

When travelling around Morocco it is not (contrary to common belief) necessary for women to ‘cover up’ out of respect for local modesty traditions. Morocco is a very mixed society with Moroccans who dress as westerners and more traditional families dressing in a more traditional way.

The only areas of the country where it is advisable for women to cover up their legs and shoulders would be in some parts of the High Atlas Mountains (very remote areas) where the locals are rarely visited by foreigners. It is highly unlikely that you will be visiting these areas on any holiday arranged by Lawrence of Morocco.
