MOROCCO - THE 10 ROMANTIC ESCAPES


"Good luck, child." It is perhaps the most representative line of cinematographic romanticism. These words were pronounced by Humphrey Bogart to Ingrid Bergman in a soft focus scene from "Casablanca" (1942). The film took its title from the capital of Morocco, and gave the country a good reputation for exotic love stories.

In Morocco you will find several destinations certainly capable of transforming your holiday into a romantic film noir. If you are staying in Casablanca, enjoy a stroll on the Mediterranean beaches, stroll along streets lined with ancient French architecture and venture into the old medina, where lively markets sell silk clothing and other indigenous handicrafts. Are you looking for luxury accommodation? Travel east to Fes and stay at the Riad Laaroussa, a 17th century palace that has become a hotel or at Dar Roumana, which offers Moroccan cooking lessons.

Like Casablanca, Fes boasts a thriving market with 30,000 craftsmen who carry around selling everything from tiles to leather to local argan oil.

If you feel particularly full of money, stay in the trendy Marrakech in La Mamounia, which Condé Nast Traveler has advertised as the most romantic hotel in the city. The former building has four restaurants, five bars, wellness treatments, indoor and outdoor pools, and a yoga pavilion.
