It’s notoriously easy to become lost in the twisting, teeming markets of Fez, Morocco’s ancient city. Better to be accompanied by a culinary guide from Amani Cookery Workshops, who can also instruct you in preparing classic Moroccan dishes. Master slow-cooked lamb with saffron, smoked aubergine salad, and native almond pastries. Stay in the exceptional Palais Amani 15-room riad to further lift the lid – or tagine – on Moroccan culture. palaisamani.com
Stationed between avant-garde Marais and food-filled Montorgueil, Hôtel National des Arts et Métier is Paris’s most debonair new hotel. Hatched by interior designer Raphael Navot, the 70-room inn has an industrial-chic palette rendered in blackened steel, charred wood and rich colours. Quirky artworks, potted plants and large skylights add residential dash. The rooms are small but smart. Its in-house Ristorante National has an Italian focus with small plates and spritzes, while the bar is known for whimsical cocktails. hotel national. paris
