We went on Friday, so don't do that. You cannot see very much as Friday is a holy day in Morocco. Still, it was interesting to walk around the grounds as our friends told us a bit about the history of the monarchy in Morocco....More
This came last in my feedback rankings following my recent Morocco tour. Put bluntly, this is boring. The palace which is pretty dull anyway is viewed from some distance and given that you are standing in a vast uninteresting space doesn't put one in the...More
The Royal Palace kind of sums up Rabat for me. We were on a tour from Casablanca (not my favourite way to see things), and pretty well everything we saw in Rabat was nice without really being particularly interesting.
