Cheap flights to Casablanca
The New York of Africa, Casablanca is a vibrant city on the move. This is the modern face of North Africa, but a place with retains a huge amount of traditional Moroccan charm.
Casablanca – the very name of it conjures up romantic images of 1940s film stars. But the ‘Casa’ of today is a long way from the film with Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman. This is the other side of Morocco, the economic and commercial heart of the country and a vast and interesting city of some four million people. Ok, so it might not have some of the ancient sights and sounds of the likes of Marrakech or Tangier, but it does have bags of its own character and a western feel that makes it seem almost as European as it is North African.
Holidays to Casablanca offer a completely different Moroccan experience, and reveal a country that is modern, vibrant and full of life.
The French Institute is a fantastic place to seek out exhibitions, theatre and dance performances, or brush up on French cinema. It's open every day (121 Boulevard Mohamed Zerktouni, if-maroc.org/casablanca).
Loft Art Gallery is an ultra-contemporary art space exhibiting innovative works by renowned Moroccan artists. It's not always easy to access the country's visual artists, so places like this are more than welcome. Well worth a visit (13 Rue Al Kaïssi, Triangle d'Or, loftartgallery.net).
If you need some classy flowers or a chic plant, Petales et Compagnie is your place. What's more, you can sip coffee or tea in a comfy armchair, book in hand, and feel like you're in an indoor garden (24 Rue Ahmed Charci, petales.ma).
