Greenery of his palm trees to the aridity of the Sahara through the gorgeous Atlas Mountains, Morocco offers a variety of breathtaking views.
From Agadir: the most popular resort, to Essaouira where the medina and souks enchant you, the possibilities are endless to relax.
Also you can discover the ancient imperial cities of Rabat, Meknes, Fez and Marrakech.
For those who have not mourned the summer yet, Morocco is also a good way to enjoy the sun in a context of great holiday. Many festivals are organized as the second edition of Nuits Sonores (sounding Nights), which runs from October 16 to 19 in Tangier, Morocco. Program details are visible on the site o Nuits Sonores: http://nuits-sonores.com/tanger .
Since 2002, this electronic music festival, member of the French Network of Festival of electronic culture, and EuropaReise network is organized by Arty Farty association. Originally the purpose of the event was to use the streets, museums and other important places of the city of Lyon to spread electronic music. Then facing a bright success, the festival Nuits Sonores (sounding nights) decided to export to Morocco, in Tangier.
If electro is still an emerging culture it gradually permeates the spirit of Moroccan youth, the proof is the majority share of the local population to the first festival Nuits Sonores of Tangier held from October 3rd to 6th 2013. With 4000 people taking part in the event, three-quarters were young Moroccans.
A totally different kind, for lovers of culture and cinema, the 11th Annual Film Festival and migrations take place from November 11th to 15th, 2014 in Agadir.
