Morocco is known as the home of four exotic imperial cities, Rabat, Meknes, Fes and Marrakesh. Each was once the capital city of the country and each is unique with key historical sites, contrasting cultures, entrancing architecture, wonderful bazaars, glorious palaces and bustling town squares.

A melting pot of Arabic, Jewish, Berber and European cultures, Morocco has many layers to explore. Morocco’s long history of invasions, conquests and colonization has left its mark on the food, architecture and traditions of this country. Wandering the labyrinthine souks of Marrakesh or Fes, your senses are awakened by the sound of tradespeople at work, the aroma of orange blossoms and the kaleidoscope of rugs, scarves and babouche shoes enticing passers-by. The Atlas Mountains, dotted with tiny villages, make way for arid desert, where nomads still eke out a living. Out toward the coast, olive groves and argon trees grow freely across the hills.

The trip includes:
• Round-trip airfare from Chicago
• Accommodations and ground transportation
• Buffet breakfast daily, three afternoon lunches and seven evening dinners
• Three nights in Casablanca, one night in Rabat, three nights in Fes and two nights in Marrakesh
