Day 1 Arrive in Tangier – Chefchaouen

Welcome to Morocco! Arrived at Tangier, the port city, the gateway between Africa and Europe. You can choose to spend time exploring Tangier, or continue to Chefchaouen, the eye-catching blue city of the Rif Mountains. Before you reach Chefchaouen, stop and hike (2-3 hours) through dense vegetation and small pools to admire Cascades d’Akchour (Akchour Waterfall) -a hidden gem. From there, arrived in the charming Chefchaouen. Known for its blue buildings in the historic Medina, explore its maze of narrow streets and alleys, which cling to the northern slopes.

Explore Place Outa el Hammam, the main square named after the number of Turkish baths (public baths) that surround it. First find a restaurant or coffee shop to eat something, and then browse the many large mosques and castles (old fortresses or fortifications) that sell traditional merchants. The mosque was built in 1560 and cannot be entered by non-Muslims (but the scenery outside is still worth seeing). Explore the castle, visit the gardens, museums, and even some old prison cells.

In the evening, walk east along the street and board the path leading to the White Spanish Mosque (20-30 minutes). When the sun sets, enjoy the last view of Chefchaouen.

Day 2 Chefchaouen – Meknes – Fes

Before leaving Chefchaouen, get up early and take a stroll on a quiet street to get the best opportunity to take unobstructed photos. Head to Fes and take a short detour to explore the impressive Roman ruins of Volubilis. Volubilis, listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, is a huge complex of buildings worth a stroll. It was built in the 3rd century BC, was abandoned in the 11th century, and is still well preserved. Marvel at the industry and the heating system, temples, and almost intact in-situ color mosaics, including the labor of Hercules.

Stop in Meknes on the way to Fez. As a smaller version of Fes, Meknes offers a calmer Medina, and dealer owners are not in a hurry to sell. Although Meknes is quite large, the two main areas of interest are the Imperial City (Prince) and the manageable Medina.

Continue to Fes and sail through the impressively large and complex medina that stretches along the hillside. Before entering the medina, take a moment to visit the ruins of Merenide’s tomb and enjoy the panoramic view of Laozi District. Overnight in the riad of Medina (with inner courtyard garden).

Today it is mainly a residential area, strolling on the quiet white and blue streets and chatting with the locals. Visit the gardens of Andalusia. The garden was built by the French in the 20th century to provide a peaceful space away from the crowd. Explore the Hassan Tower, which is an incomplete mosque and the minaret of the Mausoleum of Mohammed V. The project was abandoned in the 12th century. Only 145 feet (44 m) of red sandstone towers and about 200 pillars remain-to provide support for the imaginary mosque. End the day in Casablanca and move into your accommodation.

Day 5 Casablanca– Marrakech

If you only visit one place in Morocco, then call it Hassan II Mosque. This 690-foot (210-meter) minaret sits on the picturesque sea. It is the tallest building in Morocco and the tallest minaret in the world. Although the appearance and surrounding area are impressive, what makes this mosque even more unique is that it is one of the few mosques and miracles in the country that allows non-Muslims to enter, as well as sophisticated brigade: hand-carved stone and wood , Intricate marble floor details and gilded ceilings.

Afterwards, read carefully the Hobous Medina’s built by everyone in the 1930s. It is a great area to experience Art Deco architecture, and you can also visit the olive, vegetable and spice market.

Leave the coast and head south (three hours) to Marrakech Red.
