A guided tour of Rabat and over the river to Sale
Your guided tour of Rabat will include the medina, where the Hassan tower and mausoleum of Mohammed V are located. You will also visit the town across the river -Sale - which is quite charming along with the Chellah.
The Chellah was a settlement built around the nearby freshwater springs. These then evolved into the Phoenician, then Roman city of Sale, before decaying into ruins, as Rabat moved towards the the north. The sultans of the Merenid dynasty chose to bury their dead here, and it is as a necropolis that the Chellah is most famous.
The ruins of Roman Sala are exposed, but it is the minarets of the tomb complex, topped with stork's nests, that provide the picturesque background to your visit here.
The Lawrence of Morocco map displays the locations of the destinations and accommodation that we have selected and visited; for each item, hovering over or clicking the marker will display a short summary and photo of that place or hotel, and hotel pricing. Follow the links in the info box to the full page listing which has much more information.
Note that the online map offers both a satellite view (click satellite in the top right) and, for some locations, a street level view (Drag the person in the top left onto the map). These let you explore the country; and when you wish to explore in person, or if you have any questions about the places you see, give our staff a call, or request a quote. Our staff regularly visit the places and accommodation that we feature.
When you book a holiday with us we will provide full driving instructions for reaching your accommodation, where necessary; these can be used by yourself, or you could enjoy the luxury of a driver. Alternatively we will arrange private (car rather than coach) transfers for you; helicopter transfers are also possible for some destinations.
