You can see most of this from your vehicle although a couple short stops are ok. Large area, guards on horses a good photo op. I enjoyed the overall scenic nature of Rabat and the palace area. Seemed cleaner and more upscale than other cities.

The palace is not that spectacular. The square in front is quit impressive and large but the palace itself is just ok. You can not enter the palace or come really close because the guards will tell you to get back. The moroccans are not...More

Its not worth going through the hassle of getting passport access and then a long walk only to the outside which could have been done by car if it was permitted. just not worth it!

This is one of 43 palaces the King has. The doors were closed when we came by and you could take pictures right next to the doors which you can't tell here are massive.

I'm genuinely mystified by the positive reviews and the stories of visits to this palace. My experience was horrendous by comparison. Perhaps visiting by organized tour is the solution, but if you come by yourself, be prepared to be a victim of some nasty jokes....More

It's a long walk from the entrance into the complex. You have to first get clearance using your passports. Then walk to the outside...no access inside so it's ok for a quick stop if you have time...

It was interesting to see that area where the palace is located, but it is very well guarded so you are not able to get close.

This is really a walk about on the inside of the outside of the palace grounds. You can't get into the palace or the legislative halls. We had a group and tour guide who was able to explain what we were looking at, and some...More

I understand you cannot visit inside the walls of the Palace. The entrance doors and gates are lovely. Only needs a short visit.

We saw it from outside as we were short on time We were told by our driver/guide that we need to apply for a permit (not a normal ticket) to visit the palace.

Yes. Security here is thorough. There is an office at the gate where you can check in. The Royal Palace of Rabat is not interesting at all; the buildings are closed to visitors. Suggestion: stay in the tour bus, drive... More
