Discover the Riads of Morocco with Atlas Ocean Voyages
Atlas Ocean Voyages’ 11 nights from Tenerife to Nice is a trip like no other; with stops in the Canary Islands, Morocco and Spain before finishing in France, travelers can explore beloved old ports as well as a part of the world rarely visited on Mediterranean cruises. And with one night in Marrakech, travelers can even enjoy a stay in one of the iconic and historic riads.
A riad was the term for the large house of a wealthy individual in the 18th or 19th centuries. Built with high walls, an open courtyard to aid ventilation, and a fountain located at its heart, riads are now considered the pinnacle of the Moroccan experience for many travelers.
While many in Marrakech had fallen into disrepair after the death of their original owners, today many of them have become bed and breakfasts, luxury hotels, shared flats and other forms of accommodation, offering a unique and immersive experience to travelers. Many of them are also located in prime locations in the city, within walking distance of UNESCO World Heritage sites like the Saadian Tombs.
