One of the best places to visit in Rabat

Very beautiful streets in blue and white, a café with a great view on the Bouregreg River where you can drink a good Moroccan mint tea and delicious Moroccan pastries

This is one of the nicest sites in this city, it's quiet (no cars), cooler than the city due to the ocean, and beautiful. Have a tea on the terrace by the ocean (you're on a cliff, no swimming from here) and wander the little streets with the cats. If you take the tour with a guide, negotiate the price... More

Very pretty little area with a great view of the water. I probably would have gotten more out of it if the museums were open to provide a little more history and background.

The Kasbah ( meaning citadel ) of the Udayas is a small fortified town with a massive terrace that overlooks the Atlantic. We found it more or less by accident after we had finished wandering around Rabat’s delightful Andalusian garden. When we visited the garden’s café we spotted a doorway to our left. We entered and felt as though we... More

Take the time to wander through this historic and picturesque kasbah in the city of Rabat. It is a charming example, with lovely buildings, and a dsitinctly medditerainean feel with the gorgeous blue and while colours throughout.

You've probably already read about the locals that "hassle" tourists. I think you're better off just going with the flow. When they bother you, make sure they speak your language and offer to pay no more than 100dh for the 40 minutes or so they will be with you. There are no other costs like museums or gardens. Agree ahead... More

Such a beautiful place, even slightly reminiscent of Santorini with its blue and white colour schemes of the houses. However beauty can come with a price as we were pestered by some locals who at some point wouldn't leave us alone and even intimidated us. We saw a previous review regarding this and proceeded to ignore them yet they kept... More

We went into the Kasbah in midafternoon during Ramadan. Immediately a hustler asked if we spoke English. MISTAKE--I said yes. He said that we should go up a street near the entrance to see the best sights, that most of the area was closed for Ramadan. Up the street a ways, we were accosted by a guy who said he... More
