Day 1 Arrive in Casablanca to Rabat

Hello Casablanca! If you only visit one place in the commercial capital of Morocco, let it be the Hassan II Mosque. Located by the picturesque sea, its 690-foot (210-meter) minaret is 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 in the country that allows non-Muslims to enter.Join the morning tour with local Guide and visit the exquisite workmanship: hand-carved wood and stone, intricate marble floor detailing and gilded ceilings.

Head north to the imperial city (and current capital) of Rabat. Explore the medieval fortifications of Chellah Cemetery and stroll through Roman and Islamic ruins. Enter the old town center of Rabat through the gate of Kasbah des Oudaias. From there, visit the Andalusian gardens of the 20th century and enjoy a peaceful space away from the crowds. Explore the Hassan Tower, an incomplete mosque and the minaret of the Mausoleum of Mohammed V: an abandoned 12th-century project, leaving only the minaret and about 200 pillars.

Day 2 Explore Chefchaouen

Head north to the eye-catching blue city of Chefchaouen in the Rif Mountains. You can stop on the way and hike for 2.5 hours through forests and small pools to Cascades d’Akchour (Akchour Falls)-a hidden gem. In the afternoon, relax in charming Chefchaouen. 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 (Old Town). Explore the narrow streets and alleys that cling to the northern slopes of the mountains. Explore Plaza Outa el-Hammam, the main square named after the number of Turkish baths (public baths) that surround it.

First find a restaurant or cafe to eat something, then browse the many shops selling traditional goods. Visit the Grand Mosque and the old fort (old fortress or fortifications), and visit the gardens, museums, and even some old prison cells. As night falls, board the path leading to the abandoned white Spanish mosque (20-30 minutes) and enjoy the last view of Chefchaouen at sunset.

Day 3 Chefchaouen -Roman ruins at Volubilis-Meknes and Fes

Before heading to Fez, get up early to take pictures of unmanned streets. Along the way, stop at the UNESCO-protected Volubilis site, the furthest place for the Romans in Africa. Wander through this complex of buildings and explore the impeccable Imperial City

Continue east to your second prince, Fes. Fes has an impressive (and somewhat confusing) ancient Medina, a sub-city worth missing. Before entering the medina, before driving the medina, before driving the wheat fields up the mountain, before driving the wheat fields, driving by car, take a moment to visit the Mausoleum of Merenides located in the northern part of the city, enjoy everything here -enjoy a long history Panorama of Fes and the surrounding area. Go down the mountain and find your riad (traditional Moroccan house with indoor garden), where you can enjoy the taste and relax in the evening

Day 4 Exploring Fes

Fes is the oldest prince in Morocco (Marrakech and Rabat are the other two), and perhaps the most interesting exploration. As a UNESCO-protected site, this sub-city has not experienced much colonial development, allowing you to experience its medieval charm. Fes consists of two old Medina districts, Fes el Bali (where you will spend most of your time) and Fes el Jdid (the newer part of the city), and the New Town designed by France in the early 20th century. Meet with your guide to help you navigate the narrow and maze-like old streets of the Medina, starting from Fes el Bali (789 AD).

When you pass through the provision of spices and leather products, please pay attention to the buildings influenced by Spain and Tunisia. 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 house to better observe what is happening. Visit the 14th-century Al Attarine Madrasa and admire zellij tiles. Then visit one of the oldest and still operating universities in the world, Al-Qarawiyyin University (859 AD). Find Mellah (Old Jewish Quarter) in Fes el Jdid and admire the city from another angle.

Day 5 Exploring Fes 

Today, visit the Batha Museum. Located in a 19th century palace, the museum houses a collection of traditional Moroccan arts and handicrafts, including wood carvings, zellij (ceramics tiles) and local pottery . Spend some time in the Andalusian Gardens before walking to Mellah (Jewish Quarter and Cemetery). Take full advantage of its location and take stunning panoramic photos of the city. Continue south to Ville Nouvelle and discover the dramatic changes in the architecture.

Visit the ceramic and tile collective and 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. Return to Fes el Bali and stop at Jnan Sbil (Bo Jeloud Garden) along the way-the midpoint between Melah and Bab Boujeloud. Spend some time relaxing in the magnificence of the garden and cooling off by the central fountain or by the lake.

Day 6 : Fes – Casablanca; Depart

Wake up early and shop for last-minute souvenirs before moving on to Casablanca. Depending on your departure details, you can stroll along the Boulevard de la Corniche to the movie classic Casablanca-influenced bars, restaurants and  Rick’s Café before catching your flight back home.
