Well worth a wander

Avoid the "tour guides" or at the very least negotiate the price at the start. I loved the andulucian gardens. The view from the kasbar out to see is also worth seeing.

I found this neighborhood after wandering through the medina, and was charmed by its blue and white scheme, narrow walkways, and ornate doorways. After a bit of walking, it pops out on a lovely ocean view. Worth a quick walk-through if you're nearby, especially near sunset.

The fortifications and the walk along the sea was beautiful. We stayed there, overlooking the view, for quite some time.

Rabat is often overlooked by tourists in Morocco but it definitely deserves a visit and Kasbah des Oudaias is probably the most atmospheric place in the old city. The small, white and blue alleys and houses are perfect for a stroll and offer enormous amounts of great photographic spots, same for the giant square with sea view. Recommended.

Unlike the medina, this old town is quiet and colourful, Do not expect much merchants but enjoy the walk and end up in the Cafe Maure for a mint tea and some pastries.

The oudayas are an enclosed a little town within a town. You can walk around the narrow cobble-stone paved streets. Beautiful tiny little doors sometimes grace the entrance of houses there. I had the opportunity to enter a couple and they typically all have an interior courtyard. I recommend the "Henna" if you are in search of something different. My... More

Rabat, the capitol of Morocco, is the 7th largest city center hosting almost 600,000 people and adding the surrounding communities--2.1 million. Located on the Atlantic Ocean and by river Bou Regreg, the waves come crashing against the coast and against the light house. Kasbah Des Oudaias holds back the ocean and is currently being restored to its former glory. The... More

A nice place to relax and sit for a while, where you can smell the flowers and oranges in an Andalusian-style exotic garden. Lots of friendly cats. The outside walls are being renovated but it is still open to the public.

From the blue/white painting, the ocean overlooks, the Andalusian garden, and the great cemetery next door.... We only had a short time but we're impressed by what we were able to see. The area was overall smaller than expected and easy to get around. Nothing exceptional but everything worth your time. Don't miss this if you visit Rabat.
