    Travel outside of Tangier to the picturesque town of Asilah, considered a center for culture and art.

    Boarding your coach at the pier, it's a scenic forty-five minute drive along the western shores of the Atlantic Ocean to reach Asilah. This now peaceful town has been occupied over the centuries by the Romans, Spanish, Portuguese and the Phoenicians. It was the Portuguese who built the town's bastions, towers and imposing ramparts, which today are the setting for delightful seaside walks and restaurants renowned for their seafood dishes. Inside the ramparts, you'll find the old Medina shelters, small art workshops and cultural galleries that present the works of artists from Asilah and the surrounding region. Asilah hosts numerous festivals, but the one held every August practically turns the entire town into an art gallery. It is then that artists come from all over to exhibit their work in the setting of the old palace and in the streets. Some even paint directly on the walls of the town.

    Upon arrival, you'll stop at the Portuguese main gate, "Bab el Bahr" which features an escutcheon of the King of Portugal Arms. From here, you'll do some sightseeing in the old Medina, passing by the Raissouli Palace for an outside visit. During the annual summer festival, the Palace transforms into a Culture Palace. Your guided tour of the city continues as you admire the colorful designs on the walls and wander through the small souks of Asilah and its art district. Afterwards, you will have free time for shopping in this gem of a city, made famous by its shops which sell the works of local artists.

    Prior to rejoining your coach for the return trip to the cruise ship pier in Tangier, you'll be treated to a refreshment break at one of the local restaurants.

    Please note: This tour includes approximately 2-hours of moderate walking, plus any additional walking at the guests' discretion during free time. The tour is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair, are able to make their own way on and off the coach and have an able-bodied companion to assist them. Weather appropriate, comfortable clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended.
