Casablanca Holidays

Casablanca Holidays,

Morocco

Book a package holiday to Casablanca with Qatar Airways Holidays, and you'll be introduced to the charms of Morocco's largest city. Once a French-built port, Casablanca is a whitewashed wonderland of Art Deco buildings, beautiful boulevards, and avenues lined with palm trees. However, it's not all colonial architecture; the Hassan II Mosque and the Place Mohammed V both stand as an elegant testament to the ancient Moors who made this city their home. Similarly, the walled Old Medina gives a fleeting glimpse into Casablanca's rich past. 

When it comes to shopping, you’ll have plenty of chances to haggle for bargains in one of the bustling markets. Here you can buy anything from olives, meat and vegetables, to perfumes, handcrafted jewellery and authentic Moroccan rugs. A truly romantic backdrop to any holiday, Casablanca is a magical city with a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

• Combine your city break with a beach holiday and pay a visit to the popular Corniche district. Along the beautiful sands, you'll find plenty of places to eat and can easily spend a day watching expensive-looking yachts and boats bobbing about in the harbour.

• To see a seamless blend of Moroccan and European architectures spend some time exploring the Cathédrale du Sacre Coeur. 

• There's no better way to immerse yourself in the local culture than a visit to Central Market. Haggle your way to a bargain or enjoy a robust Moroccan coffee or a refreshing mint tea and watch the traders at work.

• If you want to explore the rolling desert that surrounds Casablanca, you'll find camel tours available allowing you to see sights such as the Sahara Erg Chebbi sand dunes.
