Set on an outcrop jutting over the ocean and with a 210 meters minaret that serves as the city’s major landmark, it is a showcase of the very best Moroccan artisanship: hand-carved stone and wood, intricate marble flooring and inlay, gilded cedar ceilings and exquisite Zellige (geometric mosaic tile-work) abound. Then to the hotel for check-in and dinner.

Casablanca – Rabat (blue city) – Fez
Overnight - Breakfast, Dinner
After breakfast, depart to Rabat driving along the main highway which links these two major cities. Embark on a city tour which highlights Rabat’s cultural influences and the superbly preserved relics of its Moorish past. Rabat’s most famous site is the Hassan Tower, the incomplete minaret of the great mosque built at the beginning of the 12th century. Located alongside is the mausoleum dedicated to Mohamed V, the grandfather of the current king, then the Oudaya Kasbah, which is built on a bluff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Its gate is one of the most beautiful surviving in the Moorish world and within its walls, you’ll explore a delightful Moroccan garden. At the conclusion of your sightseeing, we will continue towards Fes (approximately 3 hours’ drive).
Fez - Overnight
Today you take a step back in time to the Middle Ages when you visit one of the most imperial, timeless and untouched cities in the world – Fes El Bali (Old Fez). You will explore some of the 9,000 narrow lanes, alleys and souks (open-air markets) that make up the labyrinth of the city’s old quarter originally founded in the 8th century AD. The Imperial capital was a renowned center of medieval learning and at its heart still remains the Karaouine, one of the oldest, still functioning universities in the world. Your day of sightseeing also includes visits to the Nejjarine Square, with its beautiful fountain with elaborate tile-work mosaics. The nearby Fondouq (Caravanserai) has been converted to a museum of carpentry artifacts. You will also see Bouanania Medersa, this madrasa functioned both as an educational institute and as a congregational mosque. You will also visit Fes El Jedid (New Fez) built by the Merinides Dynasty in the 13th century. Here you see the Royal Palace, mosques, madrasas (Koranic schools), souks, and the city wall. Most notably, Fes El Jedid is home to the Mellah (Jewish quarter), which provides an interesting insight into Jewish architecture. The wrought iron decorated windows and splendidly carved wooden balconies of the old mansions are particularly outstanding. The medieval Medina is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Return to your hotel for dinner and overnight.
Overnight - Breakfast, Dinner
Journey overland to explore the Roman ruins of Volubilis, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that is home to some of the best-preserved Roman ruins in North Africa. With its triumphal arches, basilicas, and capitals, the Volubilis skyline brims with iconic examples of Roman architecture. Among its greatest treasures, however, are the amazing mosaic floors of former family dwellings, which include depictions of Orpheus charming animals with his lyre, nine dolphins signifying good luck and a portrait of Amphitrite in a seahorse-drawn chariot. Continue to Meknes, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the imperial cities of Morocco. Meknes is replete with fantastic historical sites, from minarets to museums, to enormous mosaic doors and royal golf courses. Among the most popular attractions are the Mausoleum of Moulay Ismail, the Nejjardine Mosque and Grand Mosque (outside visit) as well as the Bab Mansour, Bab Lakmis, and Bab Berdaine gates. Return to Fez for an evening at leisure. Enjoy dinner at the hotel.
Overnight - Breakfast, Dinner
Following breakfast, transfer to Marrakesh. Today’s journey will take you towards the Middle Atlas Mountains through Imouzzer, the first village which is an authentic Berber village where the locals still live and work like their ancestors, and Ifrane, you will enjoy the flower-lined paths and the French-style architecture of this quaint little ski resort. Drive through the cedar forest, you might even see some of the Barbary apes leaping from the higher branches. Continue through the Holm Oak and Cedar forest, then into the limestone area of the Middle Atlas then south west towards Beni Mellal for a lunch break (lunch on own) before heading west to Marrakesh. Dinner at hotel.
Marrakesh - Overnight - Breakfast, Dinner
The “Red City,” the imperial city, the capital of the mid-southwestern region, Marrakesh is Morocco’s most popular tourist destination. Since the 11th century when it was built, Marrakesh has been a political and cultural powerhouse, serving as the capital for three of Morocco’s greatest dynasties. Until the French rule, “Marrakesh” was even used interchangeably to refer to both country and city. Look out of any window in Marrakesh and you will find a postcard view: clay-red houses squared away far and wide, with palm trees sprouting everywhere in between, gardens bursting out of courtyards, and the High Atlas Mountains as a soothing purple backdrop. It’s no wonder French fashion legend, Yves Saint-Laurent found so much inspiration there. In recent years, Marrakesh has created an international airport, a world-class soccer stadium, and an annual film festival, adding a modern flair to its natural and historical offerings.
In short, if you’re going to Morocco, Marrakesh is the right passage. Let’s marvel first at its architectural jewels, including the soaring Koutoubia Mosque. The Bahia Palace, an exemplary specimen of privileged life in the 19th century. The next stop is at the Tiskiwin Museum (Maison Tiskiwin), which houses an impressive collection of North African arts and crafts. It was founded by a Dutch anthropologist exhibiting artifacts from different towns and regions along the ancient trade route from Marrakesh to Timbuktu. Later you visit Djemaa el-Fna, Marrakesh’s main square, which is filled with orange juice stalls and vendors along with fire-eaters, mime artists, snake-charmers and street musicians performing at every turn. You may also take the opportunity to explore the city’s fabled, labyrinthine souks, their bustling alleyways brimming with all manner of wares. Following your visit, return to your hotel.
The remainder of the day is at leisure, a perfect opportunity to freshen up and get ready for dinner in a local restaurant or return to your hotel for dinner and overnight.
