Day 1 Welcome to Casablanca, evening in Rabat

Welcome to Morocco! Welcome to the modern seaside city of grand Casablanca. The main attraction of Casablanca is the relatively modern and monumental Hassan II Mosque. It was completed in 1993 and sits on an outcrop that extends into the Atlantic Ocean beach and offers magnificent views. It has a minaret measuring 210 meters-the tallest building in Morocco and the tallest minaret in the world! The unique feature of this mosque is that it is one of the few mosques in the country that allows non-Muslims to enter. Take a local guide tour and admire exquisite examples of Moroccan and Islamic artistry.

Move north to the imperial city and today’s capital Rabat (Fez, Marrakech and Meknes make up the remaining imperial cities). Traverse the middle age fortifications of Chellah Cemetery in the heart of Rabat, and stroll through Roman and Islamic ruins. Go back in time to the original city center of Rabat and enter through the gate of Kasbah des Oudaias. Today it is mainly a residential area, strolling quietly on the quiet white and blue streets. From there, visit the Andalusian gardens of the 20th century and enjoy a peaceful space away from the crowds. Explore the Hassan Tower, which is the incomplete mosque and the minaret of the Mausoleum of Mohammed V. A 12th-century project was abandoned, and what remains today is a red sandstone tower standing on 44 m overnight in your Hotel/Riad.

Day 2 Rabat to blue city of Morocco 

Continue north this morning to the charming Chefchaouen in the Rif Mountains. Along the way, enjoy the scenery of the plains and green hills, and transition to the mountainous landscape. Chefchaouen has been almost untouched since the 15th century. It has some of the friendliest people in the country, creates a relaxed atmosphere, and is famous for its blue buildings in the historic Medina. Explore the charming winding streets and narrow alleys along the northern slopes. Explore the main square, Plaza Outa el-Hammam, and then enjoy a meal in a nearby restaurant or coffee shop.

For those who prefer sports, before following the path leading to Atlas Wine, you can hike up the hillside to reach the sub-wall. Enter the roof and enjoy the vast scenery of Lanzi. At the end of the day, be sure to walk east along the street up the mountain path in 30 minutes to the white Spanish mosque. It was built in the 1920s and has never been used before. Its location is a good place to watch the sunset behind the mountain.



Day 3 Roman area at Volubilis and the imperial city of Meknes

Photography enthusiasts will like to get up early to take pictures of empty and picturesque streets. Leave Chefchaouen and continue to Fes with your driver. Stop along the way to stretch your legs and explore the UNESCO-protected Roman Valubilis ruins. The large, partially excavated complex was built in the 3rd century and was abandoned more than a thousand years later. It was a prosperous city at the time and was once one of the most remote areas of the Roman Empire. From here, you can choose to travel to the smaller, less busy Meknes this is a great way to prepare for your time in Fes. Meknes has two main attractions, the mperial City and the navigable Medina [old town].

Head east to Fez and you will be dip in the impressively large and complex old medina of fes as it stretches along the hillside. To fully understand the part of Fes, start with the Tombs area above the city, enjoy the panoramic view of this old historic city and angel yourself. It is best to visit the mausoleum at dusk, because the city lights start to come on and the call of the muezzin resounds through the valley. Stay in your accommodation, this is a traditional riad hotel.

Day 4 explore the Old City of Fes by local Guide

Fes is the oldest imperial city in Morocco and the most worth exploring place. As a UNESCO-protected site, the city has not experienced much colonial development, allowing you to experience its medieval charm. Fes consists of two old Medina districts, Fes el Bali and Fes el Jdid (the newer part of the city), as well as Ville Nouvelle designed by France in the early 20th century. You will meet your local tour guide who will help you explain the narrow and maze-like old streets of the ancient town, starting with Fes el Bali that dates back to 789 AD.

When you pass through various open-air markets offering spices, leather products, and tin products, pay attention to the buildings influenced by Spain . Known for its tannery and the pungent smell associated with it, visit the popular Chouara tannery and then climb to the roof of a nearby shop to better observe what is happening. Visit the 14th-century Al Attarine Madrasa and admire ceramic tiles, before visiting one of the oldest and still operating universities in the world, AlQarawiyyin University (859 AD). Find Mellah (Old Jewish Quarter) in Fes el Jdid and admire the city from another angle.

Day 5 : Fes to Casablanca & Departure

Spend the morning according to your choice. Maybe visit the ceramic and tile collective to learn how local artisans make goods, from shaping clay to drawing designs. And watch the tile master at work, assembling small tiles together to form a complex mosaic.

Head west to Casablanca, if you wish, you can stop at Meknes or Rabat along the way. Depending on your departure details, you may wish to share drinks and eat at Rick’s Café, a restaurant, bar and coffee shop that aims to recreate the bar famous for the movie classic Casablanca.
