How to Find the Best Morocco Hotels with Venere
Morocco is a unique country, with sights, sounds, and smells you won't find anywhere else, which can be found in the heady markets of Marrakesh and the open desert. You have to really get into the culture, which is popular with families and both retired and younger ones. While you're exploring, you know you'll have a great base as Venere can set you up with a fabulous place to rest your head in "The cold country with the hot sun". This nickname is due to the chilly winter nights - if you go then, you'll find them quite refreshing! Our hotel pages have maps, reviews, and photos, making it a snap to get your accommodation covered.
What's Morocco Like?
As mentioned, Morocco has a vibrant culture and many fascinating sights. The Marrakesh Medina is a must-do on your itinerary. Here you will find all sorts of goods to haggle over in the maze-like alleyways. Tangier was once the hangout of writers like William Burroughs, giving it a rather hip feel with cool Morocco hotels. Volubilis is a dramatic monument to the Roman Empire with fragments of temples which are gorgeous at sunset. Ait Ben Haddou is an ancient adobe-built fortress which has an unreal quality that attracts many. The magnificent gateway of Bab al-Mansour in Meknes with its quintessential Arabic arches is another stunner. If you want to get away from the hustle of the medinas, the gorgeous Dades Valley is a rugged area that's great for hiking and has plenty of wildlife.
Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Morocco
Moroccans are a friendly people, but as this is a highly devout Muslim nation, you should take care to respect their faith. Don't expect much to happen on Friday as this is Holy Day when businesses close; they are often closed on Thursday as well. Ramadan is a time of great celebration and it's good to see the iftar, the nightly celebration of the end of the fast. During the day, Muslims fast and aren't allowed to smoke, drink, or chew gum. As a traveler you don't need to fast, but you should not perform any of these activities in public. When meeting a Moroccan for the first time such as the manager in Morocco hotels, a handshake is the norm, although when you get to know a person better, the customary greeting between members of the same sex includes kisses on the cheek. If a man and woman meet, the woman must extend her hand and if she doesn't, the man bows his head.
