Tangier is a fascinating Moroccan city, with a mysterious air, an interesting history, breathtaking views, unspoiled beaches, and friendly people. It is the perfect blending between African, Spanish and French influences. Frequent ferries make the short crossing from Europe each day, and many Cruise ships sailing between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic often include Tangier as a port of call. Climb on the top of the hill on which Tangier is built; you will have the chance to see two continents at once. Also, take some time to visit the Tangier American Legation - the oldest American overseas legation. The museum houses documents which retrace the history of the relations between Morocco and the United States since 1776; but also a wide collection of furniture, ancient doors, maps, paintings. Another interesting sight is the Kasbah Museum, the former Sultan's palace. It deserves to be seen not only for it's collection of artifacts from the Phoenician to modern times, but also for the building and garden.
