Meredith Travel – Spain and Morocco
September 28 – October 12, 2023
Spain illuminates Morocco and Morocco illuminates Spain. Meredith is excited to be providing friends and alumnae a tour that includes both. Starting in Barcelona, where we will focus on Catalan culture and food and on Gaudi architecture, we will stay by the sea in Castelldefels for our first two lovely nights. From there we head south, via Valencia and Granada to Malaga. En route we will tour the Alhambra, which is one of the world’s best preserved Islamic palaces. Gaudix, famous for its pottery and cave dwellings, will be our next stop. We will spend the night in a hacienda in the Sierra Nevada where we will enjoy a wine tasting and a traditional dinner. We will travel on to Malaga via Salobrena, where we will feast on paella and feast our eyes on Picassos. Our final stop is Ronda, with its jaw dropping gorge.
A ferry ride across the Strait of Gibraltar ends with our first night in Tangier, sometimes called the Door of Africa. We will celebrate our arrival in Morocco with an evening of live music, belly-dancing, and traditional food. Traveling via Rabat and Meknes, where we will tour the Royal Stables, our next destination is Fez, where, like Dorothy, we will all be 100% certain we are not in Kansas. The medina, one of many World Heritage sites on our itinerary, will dazzle you, we promise. And then there is Fez’s 1,000 year old tannery. Our next stop is Marrakesh, where we will tour the Bahia Palace, the Saadian Tombs, and the Djemaa-El-Fna Square en route to an outdoor dinner under the sky in the Agafay Desert. Our last night will be spent in Casablanca, arriving in time for a visit to the Hassan II Mosque, the largest in Africa and the seventh largest in the world. A special dinner will conclude this marvelous travel experience, one we believe will delight you.
Price: $5,587 per person, based on double occupancy. Single supplement is $1,489. Airfare is not included. Travelers will arrive at Barcelona (BCN) and depart through Casablanca (CMN).
