Magical Morocco October 13 - 28, 2023
Reservations will open on January 31, 2023.
Join the SAA and Courtney Stewart, Researcher and Lecturer at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, for an unforgettable journey through the profusion of sights and sounds of this fascinating country of extraordinary contrasts. After arrival and overnighting in Casablanca, we travel to Rabat, Tangier, Fes and Marrakech. Off the beaten track, we will visit Tetouan, Chefchaouen - the "Blue City", Meknes and Volubilis, the end of the Imperial Roman Road.
Artfully dodging donkeys and handcarts through the labyrinthine maze of narrow pathways in bustling medieval medinas, we will explore Moroccan and Berber handicrafts and culture. We will visit notable architectural, garden and art venues, informed by Arabic, European, Roman, Jewish, French and Spanish traditions — literally the crossroads between Europe and Africa. Enjoy Moroccan cuisine in charming riads and delightful restaurants. The beautiful mountain scenery will complete this colorful canvas and will leave indelible impressions.
The opportunity to sign up for this trip will open on January 31, 2023. SAA members will receive an email on January 31 with information on how to reserve a spot. Information will also be posted on our website on the trip webpage. Reservations will be accepted BY MAIL ONLY.
Acceptance will be determined by the earliest postmark date and a waiting list will be established. This trip is limited to 20 SAA members and is expected to fill up quickly, so it is important to send in your reservation immediately. If you are not yet an SAA member, you may join online.
