A guide to Casablanca – the sights
For tourists renting Casablanca holiday apartments, the city offers plenty to see, whether it be beautiful Art Deco architecture dating from Morocco's French colonial days, or the more recent Hassan II mosque, completed in 1993, with its stunning 200m high minaret and a vast prayer hall with a retractable roof. In the historic but vibrant city, Casablanca holiday rentals enable you to experience both the old and the new Morocco.
From your holiday accommodation in Casablanca, you can venture into the ancient medina and the souk that runs along the boulevard Tahar-El-Alaoui for an array of traditional handicrafts. Upmarket brands can be found on the trendy and chic boulevard d'Anfa, while the city's main drag, the boulevard Mohammed V, has 2km of arcades to explore.
Eating and Nightlife
Casablanca holiday rentals are a perfect way of experiencing the city's atmosphere and cuisine. For lunch, try the grilled fish at the cafes of the Franco-Moorish Marche Central, or enjoy the views of the medina from La Sqala, a converted seaside fortress. In the evening, why not stop by for a drink at Rick's Cafe, an homage to Humphrey Bogart's gin joint in the Hollywood movie Casablanca
Within driving distance of your holiday accommodation in Casablanca are two outstanding beach resorts, Mohammedia and Bouznika Bay, both of which offer discos, bars, golden beaches and a relaxed party vibe. Casablanca holiday apartments can be your gateway to a coastline full of interest and beauty.
