Morocco is one of Africa's most beguiling and accessible travel destinations and is made up of an array of cities that any visitor should add to their itinerary when exploring this fascinating country. In this Conversation, we will visit five of Morocco's most beguiling cities, each of which reveals a different aspect of Moroccan history. From the blue city of Chefchaouen rooted in Andalucia, to modern Casablanca with one of the finest collections of Art Deco architecture in the world, welcome to Morocco.

We’ll begin in Fez, as we explore the country's oldest city and spiritual capital, and its medieval medina – the largest car-free urban area in the world. Meknes, once home to one of Morocco's most powerful dynasties, we will see the power of imperial architecture, and the shadows of a Roman past. In Tangier, where rival European powers once intrigued for control of the country, we follow in the footsteps of the Beat writers. Chefchaouen (Morocco’s picturesque blue city in the Rif Mountains), bears the imprint of Morocco's both ancient and modern ties to Spain, a little known aspect of its history. Finally, we stop in Casablanca, the modernist city laid out by the French colonial government and home to one of Africa's best collections of Art Deco architecture.

Led by an expert on Morocco, travel writer and guidebook author Paul Clammer, this seminar will introduce participants to cities beyond Marrakech. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with an increased list of destinations to add to the Moroccan bucket list or simply admire from afar.

Paul Clammer is a travel writer and the author of more than 40 guidebooks for Lonely Planet. He first visited Morocco in 1994, and has been a regular visitor every since, working there as a tour guide and as co-writer on five editions of LP's guidebook to the country. More recently, he has lived in the medina in Fez, where his partner is` restoring a centuries-old traditional Moroccan townhouse.
