Day 2: The Tallest Structure in Morocco
Today, explore Casablanca, which is reputed to be a modern coastal city. The prime attraction in the city is the monumental and modern Hassan II Mosque. The mosque was inaugurated nearly three decades ago and is positioned on an outcrop that juts into the Atlantic and gives some great views. It has a minaret, the tallest structure in the entire nation. This mosque is made even more unique because it is one of the few mosques in the nation where non-Muslims are allowed to enter. Enjoy a guided tour of the place and wonder at the great illustrations of Islamic and Moroccan artisanship. Then, reach the northern part of the nation to the present-day capital and imperial city of Rabat. The remaining imperial cities are Meknes, Marrakech, and Fes. Peek at the medieval fortification in the city's heart in the form of the Chellah Necropolis. Then, roam through the Islamic and roman ruins that are present here.
Day 3: Rabat's City Center
Today, immerse yourself in the history of the original city center of Rabat by entering through the grand door present in the Kasbah des Oudaias. It is a residential area with serene and quiet blue and white-washed streets. Spend some valuable time exploring everything. Then, reach the Andalusian Gardens and soak in the relaxing vibes away from the hustle and bustle of the crowds. Then, go to the Hassan Tower, a minaret of incomplete mosques. Then, reach the Mausoleum of Mohamed V. It is an abandoned medieval project. All that remains at present is the red sandstone tower that stands very high.
Day 4: Blue Chefchaouen
Today, go to the northern part of the nation to the Rif Mountains, which hosts the charming Chefchaouen. Enjoy the scenic roads, which have views of green hills and flat plains as they change into the landscapes of the mountains. Chefchaouen has remained mostly untouched since the medieval period. Enjoy the relaxed atmosphere here with several of the friendliest individuals in the nation. It is well known for the blue-washed buildings housed in the historic medina. Then, go through the narrow alleys and winding roads along the northern part of the hillside. Explore the Plaza Outa el-Hammam, which is the main square present here. Then, relish a delicious bite at nearby premium cafes or restaurants.
Day 5: Trekking in Chefchaouen
Today, enjoy a lovely trek up the hillside to reach the perimeters of the city walls before following the trail to reach Hotel Atlas. Get to the rooftop and look at the expansive views of Blue City from here. Follow the roads to the east to go up a path to the hill to arrive at the white Spanish Mosque. It was built in the early 1900s but was never utilized. The location gives a lovely spot to watch the sunset behind the mountains.
Day 6: Ruins of Volubilis
Today, enjoy an early breakfast before your guide drives you in a private vehicle on the picturesque and empty streets to leave Chefchaouen behind and continue on to Fes. En route, halt to relax for some time, and then start your exploration of the Roman ruins of Volubilis, which are deemed UNESCO-protected sites. The sprawling complex was partially excavated and was discovered nearly three thousand years ago but was abandoned a thousand years later. It was a throbbing city in its prime and was also a part of the Roman empire at one point. Then, start your journey towards the less busy and smaller Meknes. It is a great way to prepare yourself for the time you will spend in Fes. Meknes has a couple of areas of interest, including the navigable medina and the Ville Imperiale.
Day 7: Medieval Fes
Today, begin your exploration of Fes, which is deemed to be a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is the oldest of the imperial cities and is seen as the most complete medina in the Arab world. It has not been touched since it was founded nearly a millennium ago. The streets of the city are chaotic and give you a sense of what it must have been like to live during those times in the nation. Fes is seen to be the cultural capital of the nation. It was also influenced by French colonial rule, which is Ville Nouvelle. Your guide will help you to find out the rich culture and history of the place as you go through winding, narrow roads.
Day 8: Departure
Today, your private guide will transfer you to the airport for your international departure.
