Day 2 – Tangier, Morocco
Tangier was the real model for the famous American film «Casablanca» with Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman. It still retains its faded mongrel charm – not entirely Moroccan, European or African but a heady mix of all three.
Day 4 – Casablanca, Morocco
Veiled by overlapping mantles of French, Arabian and African culture, Casablanca reveals new faces at every turn. The enormous Hassan II Mosque (holding 70,000 worshippers) is the new Morocco, while the fanciful Mauresque buildings in the Medina impart visions of pre-war Casablanca.
Day 5 – Safi, Morocco
Today, Safi is mainly modern, home to a fishing port and diversified industries. The old town which lies within the city is still very much alive. Here you may be tempted to buy pottery typical of this part of the region.
Day 7 – Arrecife, Lanzarote, Spain
Lanzarote is the easternmost island of the Canary Islands and has a volcanic origin.
Arrecife is a city and municipality in the Canary Islands (Spain) situated in the centre-east of the island of Lanzarote, of which it has been the capital since 1852. The city owes its name to the rock reef (‘Arrecife’ is Spanish for ‘reef’) which covers the beach located in the city. The city also gives its name to the island’s nearby airport.
Day 8 – Las Palmas, Grand Canary, Spain
This 15th-century city with a semitropical colonial ambience is a favorite stopping place for yachts crossing the Atlantic.
