Itinerary

Jump into the colour and chaos of the souqs. See the Koutoubia Mosque or just kick back at the Djemma el-Fna and watch the jugglers, palm readers and orange juice squeezers vie for attention in Marrakech.
Be sure to spend time exploring Morocco's Moorish architecture in Casablanca. A visit to the ornate Hassan II Mosque is highly recommended.
Step back in time in the medieval streets of the Fes medina. Discover the pungent scents of the tanneries and drop by a ceramics factory to see potters at work.
Explore the ancient Roman city of Volubilis. Get an insight into Islamic pilgrimage while staying in Moulay Idriss, one of Morocco's holiest towns.
Travel by train to Tangier. Experience old-world sights and sounds in the kasbah and medina or rub shoulders with locals on the seaside promenade.
Cross the Strait of Gibraltar and travel to Seville. Known for its fiestas, tapas and enormous Gothic cathedral, this Spanish city is scattered with remnants of the past. Maybe take the steps to the top of the cathedral's Moorish tower before an evening performance of impassioned flamenco.
Discover slices of Islamic architecture around every corner in the beautiful Moorish city of Granada. Explore the old Arab quarter of Albayzin, climb the city's steep streets to Mirador San Nicolas and make time to visit the Alhambra - an ancient palace and fortress.
Reflect on modern Spain in Madrid's many museums or take a day trip to Toledo, a city soaked in rich culture and history.
Finish the tour in the much-loved city of Barcelona. With history, art, architecture, beaches and amazing food around every corner, staying a few extra days might have to be an option!
