Your quick immersion into this lively city begins as you head to the mostly-in-ruins walls of the Kasbah, which provide a glimpse into a prosperous past. The hilltop location also offers inspiring views the sights below, including the commercial port where your ship is docked, the fisherman’s port with its sandy bay, and the boulevards of the city. In the distance, you will spy the verdant Souss Valley, the Anti Atlas mountains and Tichka Plateau.

 

From here, travel to the Souk of the bustling Bab El Had, protected by the shade of woven screens.

 

Pause at the souk for a chance to take photographs before continuing to the New Medina. Designed by the distinguished artist Beato Salvatore “Coco” Polizzi, a lover of Berber culture, this district boasts inviting cafes, an arts and crafts gallery, a small hotel and workshops where artisans fashion treasures from wood, iron, tile and clay.
