Day 1 Arrive in Tangier to Chefchaouen

Welcome to Tangier-the gateway between Europe and Africa! Located near southern Spain, you’ll be able to visit the restaurant Medina (Old Town) within the trendy Zoco Chico Square, or stroll along the promenade. Or, head straight to Chefchaouen, a blue city within the Rif Mountains. Enjoy the scenic way and stop along the thanks to hike to Cascades d’Akchour . Chefchaouen has endless winding narrow streets with amazing buildings. hunt for restaurants or cafes in Plaza Outa el Hammam and take pleasure in delicious food while people watch.

Although it seems that non-Muslims aren’t allowed to enter, the Grand Mosque remains worth a visit. From there, explore the nearby kasbah (old fortifications) and visit gardens, museums and a few old prison cells. Follow the trail outside the town walls to the Atlas Hotel, then climb up the roof to enjoy the view of the Blue City. For those that are a bit more sporty, please skip Ras el Ma Spring along the eastward road and follow the trail (20-30 minutes) until you reach the abandoned white Spanish mosque. Enjoy the last view of Chefchaouen, because the sun sets behind the mountain.

Walking time: 2-3 hours

Day 2 Roman kingdom of Volubilis, imperial cities Meknes and Fes

Before heading to Fez, get on my feet early to require pictures of unmanned streets. Along the way, stop at the UNESCO-protected site of Volubilis, the furthest place in Africa for the Romans. Wander through this complex and explore commercial residences with intact heating systems, temples and plenty of in-situ mosaics. still the smaller and fewer busy Fes Meknes to find out about this historic imperial city. the 2 main attractions are Ville Impériale (Imperial City) and Medina. make certain to go to the Bab alMansour Gate, Moulay Ismail Mausoleum and Royal palace.

Continue to Fez. Fes has a powerful (and somewhat confusing) ancient Medina, a city worth losing in it. Before walking into the Medina (the world’s largest car-free zone within the city), the pioneers drive uphill to a full view of the medieval city within the ruins of the tomb of Merenides. the simplest time to go to the traditional tomb is around dusk. because the lights of town began to illumine, the atmosphere became stronger, and also the voice of the voice of worship spread throughout the valley. Return to your traditional riad for a hot meal, then cool down.

Day 3  Fes: Exploring the Imperial City and medieval of Fes

Fes is that the oldest of the four imperial cities in Morocco, and maybe the foremost interesting and exciting to explore. it’s the foremost complete Medina within the Arab world and has been relatively unaffected since its establishment quite 1,000 years ago. Generally considered the cultural capital of the country, it consists of three parts, two Medina districts, Fes el Bali and Fes el Jdid, and therefore the more modern Ville Nouvelle influenced by French colonization. Meet along with your guide and spend half each day learning about history and culture while walking through the narrow streets of the Medina.

Start at Fes el Bali at the Bab Boujeloud gate and enter the most road of Talâa Kebira. once you pass shops and open-air markets (markets), concentrate to the buildings influenced by Spain and Tunisia. one among the foremost unique attractions within the old medina is that the tannery, and therefore the Chouara tannery isn’t any exception. Climbing to the roof of a close-by leather shop, you’ll be able to better admire the stone pots stuffed with dye within the 11th century and therefore the people that are still working with centuries-old technology.

Next, head to the 14th century Al Attarine Madrasa, a good example of Moroccan architecture and craftsmanship, displaying intricate zellij tiles. From there, you’ll head to one in all the oldest universities still operating within the world, Al-Qarawiyyin University (859 AD) next to the AlQarawiyyin Mosque. Although the mosque is barely receptive Muslims, you’ll catch a glimpse of its beautifully decorated interior in some places. Cooking enthusiasts may wish to require a cooking class and find out how to arrange a typical Moroccan meal before retirement within the evening.

Day 4 Fes to Rabat

Spend the morning exploring more Fes. Maybe visit a local collective of ceramics and ceramic tiles, and watch a ceramic tile master at work, assembling small tiles together to form a complex mosaic. Head west to the imperial city and today’s capital Rabat, this bustling city has many attractions and a rich history. Explore the medieval fortifications of the Chellah Cemetery in the heart of Rabat, and stroll through Roman and Islamic ruins. Enter the original city center of Rabat through the gate of Kasbah des Oudaias. Walk 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. This is an abandoned 12th-century project. What remains today is the red sandstone tower and about 200 pillars.

Day 5 Morning in Casablanca; Depart

Follow the south coast of modern Casablanca. The main attraction of Casablanca is the modern and monumental Hassan II Mosque. Opened in 1993, it is located on a prominent promontory in the Atlantic Ocean and offers stunning views. It contains a minaret of 690 feet (210 m) – the tallest building in Morocco and the tallest minaret in the world. What also makes this mosque unique is that it is one of the few mosques in the country where non-Muslims are allowed to enter. Join a morning trip and discover the exquisite craftsmanship: hand-carved stone and wood, intricate marble floor detailing, and gilded ceilings.

If time permits, you might want to share a drink and a meal at Rick’s Café, a restaurant, bar and café designed to recreate the bar made famous in the classic movie, Casablanca before heading to the airport for the return flight.
