Surprisingly enough, Rabat is an off the beaten track destination. Apart from its status as capital of the Kingdom of Morocco, it offers loads of things to see and do. The charming and quite unique old Medina resembling a small Greek town with narrow streets and white houses is a must. There is also a cool beach downtown, complete with a medieval fortress, Kasbah of the Udayas, facing the sea. Don’t forget to visit the 12th century Hassan Tower close to Medina, part of an antique mosque next to the modern Mausoleum of Mohammed V. On the outskirts of the city, there is a fortified necropolis Chellah, with tombs, fortress ruins and storks all over the place. Additionally, there is a royal palace, a very nice French quarter, great restaurants and shopping scattered around. It seems there aren’t many cheap hotels and guesthouses, which could explain the lack of flock of tourists. An outstanding city and you get to explore it by yourself!
