Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Insight Guide Morocco is your comprehensive guide book to one of the world’s most exciting destinations. Full-color photos throughout combine with lively, narrative text to help you discover this intense and rewarding country. Our inspirational Best of Morocco section outlines top attractions and activities not to miss – Marrakech, the capital of the south, the medieval city of Fes, the snow-capped Atlas mountains, the fortified coastal town of Essaouira, the dunes of the Sahara. We share our recommendations for the finest festivals, the prettiest towns, the best adventures – from trekking up Mount Toubkal, the highest mountain in North Africa, to skiing (yes, you can ski in Africa), rafting, kayaking and dune boarding. We advise you where to go for the best souks (markets) and share our tips on how to haggle.

Our detailed History and Culture chapters cover Morocco’s past and present in engaging and accessible essays, reflecting a country transformed by colonization and tourism, yet still rooted in its ancient traditions. Features by our local writer cover a whole range of subjects, including Moroccan architecture, music, food and adventure activities.

Our Places chapters cover the entire country, from Chefchaouen in the north, with its beautiful blue-painted houses, to the resort of Agadir in the south, from the popular coastal town of Essaouira on the Mediterranean coast to the smallest villages of the Atlas mountains. All major sites are cross-referenced with the detailed maps to help you get around, and the travel tips cover all the planning information you’ll need, such as how to get around and how much to budget for your trip. Selective listings hand-picked by our local writer give you our independent recommendations for where to stay and where to eat.
