Itinerary & Notes
Salaam Alaikum! Welcome to Morocco, both wealth and poverty line the streets of Casablanca, so it is a great place to acclimatise to the culture shock. Your adventure begins today with a welcome meeting at 6pm, if you arrive with time to spare, then perhaps visit the art deco Villa des Arts, this gorgeous gallery dates back to the 1930s and holds numerous exhibitions of contemporary Moroccan and international art. If you are looking for a different type of cultural experience, then you can discover a unique and fascinating part of Moroccan history at the Museum of Judaism.
