Connect with your tour guide, who will pick you up from your hotel in Casablanca to start the itinerary.
Begin the trip to Essaouira; the former Mogador built on a rocky peninsula. Its ramparts in a vigil on the ocean, its medina in white and blue tones, its busy port and its long sandy beaches.
Understand the history of Essaouira, which dates back to the 8th century BC. The Phoenicians stopped there on the road of the equator. The real founder of the city was the Alaouite Sultan Sidi Mohamed Ben Abdellah, who entrusted the construction to Theodore Cornut, architect and student of Vauban Essaouira is now a nice little fishing port very lively at the arrival of the boats where sardines and crustaceans are sold at the auction. On the docks, fishers repair the red nets.

Enjoy the sardine grilled outdoors in the harbour's small restaurants, then discover the Sqala du Port, a crenellated bastion built to protect the harbour and the city. It consists of two fortified wings behind the Navy gate.
Leaving the port Sqala, enter Moulay Hassan square. Discover the Kasbah, a district surrounded by ramparts with foundations anchored in the rock.
Walk along the ramparts taking the street that leads to the Sqala of the Kasbah, where the famous guns of Essaouira line up. This place was chosen by Orson Welles to turn the exterior sets of his Othello.
At the heart of the Kasbah, go to the Museum of Popular Arts and Traditions, the mirror and the collective memory of the province of Essaouira. Explore the ritual or profane musical instruments of the Aissaoua, Hamadcha and Gnaoua brotherhoods. Every year in June, the world-renowned Gnaoua Festival of Essaouira.
Later, return to your accommodation in Casablance to conclude the tour.
