Delight in a visit to Asilah, "The Atlantic Pearl," on a half-day adventure that begins with a scenic 60-minute ride to the northwestern tip of Morocco's Atlantic coast. Asilah is a true reflection of the multicultural influences of its past, and your exploration of this petite seaside town reveals its artistic contribution to Morocco's history and its international flair. First populated by the Phoenicians (1500 BC), it has throughout its checkered history been conquered by both Portugal and Spain but today is a peaceful coastal city with white and blue painted homes, museums, and street artists who flock to Asilah's shores. Upon arrival, embark on a guided walking tour through the cobblestoned medina (old town). It is a treasure trove of Spanish, Portuguese and Moorish architecture, and you can learn its fascinating history as you soak up the local color. Pause for tea and pastries and, if time permits, a little independent exploration. Relax on the ride back to port after this most pleasant day.
