Day 1: Rabat – Meknes – Fez
Tour Six days after leaving Rabat, we set out early for Meknes, where we stop for lunch. Meknes is an imperial city that is very similar to Fez; its Medina is flirtatious and orderly, which makes it much easier to walk through; and it is very traditional, with winding streets brimming with market stalls for food, dining establishments, and cooperative craft projects.
We also go to the Bab Mansour gate, was opened in 1732 and is the biggest gate in Africa and Morocco. The Roman city of Volubilis, which has the most spectacular and well-preserved remains in all of Morocco and was designated a World Heritage Site in 1997, will be our next stop. We will be led throughout this hour and a half excursion by a knowledgeable guide. The Middle Atlas, tucked between mountains with its light-colored dwellings are visible in the distance, will be our next stop on the way to Moulay Idriss. Arrival in Fez for the night at last. Dinner and lodging are provided by the hotel or riad.
Day 2: visit Fez
After breakfast, we’ll travel to Fez, the oldest city in Africa and the cultural hub of Morocco. With more than 9400 winding streets, the Medina of this city is its biggest. Since the medina is the largest pedestrian area in the world, visiting Fez is like going back in time to a time when neighborhoods were divided into guilds and there was no way to get around the city other than by foot while dodging loaded donkeys carrying goods. Finally, we will have a breathtaking view of the entire city of Fez from the Merenid remains beyond the Medina. Dinner and lodging are provided by the hotel or riad.*
