Once a bit settled in, you will start your time in Morocco by paying a visit to the Hassan II Mosque, the largest operating mosque in Africa and the 14th biggest in the world.

From there you will head off to Rabat, the capital of Morocco. Rabat is a rich city with a long history and a number of important monuments to see, such as the Kasbah of Udayas and the unfinished Hassan Tower, the minaret of an incomplete mosque from the 12th century.

Your day will end in Fes, one of the four imperial cities. However, on your way there, sever further stops will be made in both Meknes and the Roman ruins of Vollibilis.

Volubilis is the only city of its kind in Morocco, located in the outskirts of the Fes-Meknes region. Here you will have the chance to explore the well-preserved ruins, including the Basilica, the Capitoline Temple, and the Triumphal Arch.

Meknes is known as the “Versailles of Morocco”, and is another of the four imperial cities known for its long and interesting history derived from the Ismaeli dynasty that ruled Morocco many centuries ago.

Day II:Fes - Local Tour - Imperial City - Old Medina of Fes

On the second day of your 10-day in Morocco tour from Casablanca, get ready for a full day of exploration of Fes, the cultural and spiritual heart of Morocco.

Fes is one of the four imperial cities of Morocco with a unique vibe and rich history. Get lost in the labyrinthine city center with your local guide as you wander through the narrow winding streets of the UNESCO-listed Fes el-Bali (Old Medina). There you will visit centuries-old tanneries, intricately decorated mosques, plus one of the oldest universities in the world and the first ever founded by a woman – the University of Al-Quaraouiyine. While there, don’t forget to immerse yourself in the medina’s bustling atmosphere as you wind your way through the old city’s countless lively markets.

Once you leave the old center, discover some of the most fascinating historical hot spots outside of the medina to experience Fes from a different perspective. Stops include the Royal Palace Gates, the Jewish Quarter “Mellah”, and the South Tower, which offers an incredible panoramic view of the old city.

After your time with your new forest friends, carry on to Midelt, a town located in the Middle Atlas Mountains which is known for its apple production. After that, your drive will continue through the Ziz Valley, known for its palm groves, Berber towns and scenic landscapes well-worth capturing.

Once you arrive to Merzouga, you will see a whole different vibe and scenery unique to Morocco’s Saharan Desert.
