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.
