When you fly to Casablanca with Alitalia in an extra-comfort seat, the mystique of this great city will be waiting to enchant you.
Travel to Casablanca and see one of the new wonders of the world – the Hassan II Mosque on the very edge of the sea which can accommodate over 80,000 worshipers. The “Corniche” offers some lovely strolls along the oceanfront to take in the cooling sea breezes and to watch the world go by while sipping a coffee. The Old Medina, essentially a market, is picturesque and full of local goods. The City Hall of Casablanca features some beautiful modern Islamic architecture and is particularly pretty at night when illuminated. “L'Eglise du Sacré-Coeur” is a now deconsecrated church with stunning stained glass windows and great views over the city.
Flights to Casablanca in April-May will allow you to catch the “Jazzablanca” festival in full swing – literally! There is a contemporary dance festival in October, and the Festival of Casablanca, generally held in July, is a vast celebration of music and dance. Tickets to Casablanca's events are typically available online or through hotels.
