Morocco is a surprising country. As soon as you set foot in it, you can feel the rhythm of its busy and wonderful cities, and be fascinated by the changing mountains of the Atlas and the uniqueness of the Sahara desert.

Upon our arrival in Fez, we headed to the charming Riad Fes, an authentic riad located inside the largest medina in the world, which is reached through a well-kept garden. With a relaxed and quiet atmosphere, it offers one of the best views of the city from its rooftop bar.

Fez is considered the cultural capital of Morocco, where the first university in the world was founded, and walking around its medina is like entering a maze of alleys, shops, smells and flavours. Every spot is unique!

After a day full of visits and shopping, relaxing in the pool of Hotel Sahrai is fantastic. Located on the outskirts of the medina, it allows you to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of Fez.

Our adventure continued on the road to the south, through picturesque landscapes and the imposing Atlas Mountains, until we reached the Sahara, the largest desert in the world.

Its formations and colours are completely amazing, as well as the feeling of stepping on the smooth sand when climbing one of its dunes.

There we lived some of the most authentic experiences of our journey: riding on a dromedary at sunset, driving on dunes and plains with our guide in 4×4 or enjoying the hospitality of the nomads while sharing tea in their tents.

Finally we headed towards the old capital of the country, Marrakech. Upon arrival we could sense why Marrakech is different from the rest of the cities in Morocco.

The traffic is incessant, full of motorcycles, taxis and carriages, the streets and gardens are full of life, the souks are overflowing with tenacious sellers willing to offer you their crafts, local products and objects of all kinds, and you can discover emblematic spots such as Jemaa el Fna Square or the Koutoubia mosque.

In the afternoon we chose to relax in the private pool of our riad, the Royal Mansour, located just a few steps from the city center, in a beautiful garden, and with all the comforts that one can imagine.

At night, it’s interesting to walk around Jemaa el Fna, where locals, tourists, shows, music, dances, smells and flavours merge to create a perfect harmony.

Visiting Marrakech is easy and pleasant, its souks attract you and encourage you to get lost among its stalls and to negotiate with its merchants, the monuments of the city are true works of art and its gardens are a joy to all photography lovers.

We left Morocco fascinated by its history, cities and landscapes, but above all captivated by its people and their kindness and hospitality.
