Rabat is the second biggest city after Casablanca. It is famous for all the historical monuments in the Kingdom and the luxurious carpets and rich embroidery. A good thing about Rabat is that you can easily explore the city on your own without the help of a guide. This gives you time to chat with locals in the cafes who do not depend on the money of the tourists.
Things to See & Do
Rabat's Medina is all there was before the French arrived in 1912 it's a dense sector that is nestled between the sea and the river with stone and white washed buildings.
Rabat's Archeological Museum is probably the most important in Morocco. It hosts an exceptional collection of roman-era bronzes. Descriptions are in French and the museum guide will also be glad to give you a tour in French.
The Palace Museum
The palace itself was built in the seventeen century and is home to exhibitions of Moroccan arts and culture that are usually very fascinating.
The Andalusian Gardens
The Andalusian Gardens surround the Palace Museum and were constructed in the twentieth century by the French. It is the meeting place for woman on Friday and Sunday afternoons and is filled with the lovely scents of trees, bougainvillea, herbs and flowers.
For a capital city, Rabat is very quiet and offers a number of excellent restaurants, clubs and pubs. The Medina is home to a few very good cafe-restaurants. The restaurants here are moderately priced and inexpensive. In the Ville Nouvelle you will find a fine selection of Moroccan and French restaurants for five-star cuisine and also a few Oriental Restaurants for a change in cuisine.

With the city centre of Rabat being very compact, all the points of interest are in walking distance. Local Bus services can be very useful and they are marked very clearly. Petit and Grands taxis can be found at the airport, the train station and at Boulevard Hassan. Take note that Petit taxis are not authorized to operate between Rabat and Sale.
