Exotic places of your dreams come alive in full color and become a part of you forever.
Welcome at Casablanca airport (look for the driver holding Experience Morocco sign with your name on it). Transfer to your hotel and enjoy the rest of the day at leisure.
Depart early for the 4.5-hour drive to Fes with stops to Meknes and Volubilis ruins of an ancient Berber and Roman city. Wander among the dramatic ruins through the homes, temples and public buildings of the Greek, Syrian, and Jewish city dwellers and imagine the cypress-lined city in its Golden Age. Exceptionally well preserved, the ruins offer beautiful and colorful mosaics adorning many of the floors. Tour the stunning imperial gates that dot the neighboring city of Meknes and after lunch depart for Fes. Hotel check-in and enjoy the rest of the day at leisure.
After breakfast, depart for a city tour. Founded in 781AD, Fes is now considered the world’s largest car-free urban zone. Beware of mule-drawn carriages that speed through the alleyways and check out a local pharmacy with its mysterious canisters of roots, flowers and powders. After lunch, explore the medina’s Jewish quarter, the madrasas, and the legendary tanneries, where ancient techniques are still used to prepare Moroccan leather for a variety of goods. Next visit the world’s oldest learning institution, the University of Al Quaraouiyine, founded in 859AD. (B)
