The city’s Moorish buildings, which meld French-colonial design and traditional Moroccan style, are best admired in the downtown area. After breakfast at your accommodation we will drive you to Rabat and explore the capital of Morocco. Here you’ll see the Mausoleum of Mohamed V, which is topped by a cupola and comprises, to the right ,a museum with a gallery above it.
