TRAVEL PROGRAM

Day 1: Airport – Marrakech
Pick up at the airport and transfer to your hotel. A romantic walk and a mint tea in a café in the square Jama el Fna, full of life both day and night, will make you fall in love with this magical city. Free dinner and overnight at the hotel.

Day 2: Marrakech – Casablanca – Rabat
After breakfast, we will drive to Casablanca. Once there, you will have the opportunity to visit the great Mosque of Hassan II, the most modern religious building in the world (optional visit). The site will surprise you not only for its location-the mosque is overlooking the sea, but also for its beautiful exterior facade and the interior. Then we will visit the new center of the city, the old medina and the area Habou, so you will be able to compare the old and the modern Moroccan architecture. In the afternoon, we will go to the imperial city of Rabat, capital of Morocco since 1912. We will visit the royal palace “Dar El Makhzen” and its mosque “Men of Fez”, the Kasbah Oudaias and the medina. Free dinner and overnight stay in the hotel.

Day 3: Rabat – Volubilis – Meknes
In the morning, we will leave Rabat and go to the Roman ruins of Volubilis, where we will take a walk through this site that is a testament of the rich history of Morocco. After lunch, we will continue towards Meknes, the imperial capital of the Sultan Moulay Ismail (1672-1727), proud to host one of the oldest universities in the world. A local guide will take us on a journey through time, during which we will visit the most interesting sites of the ancient medina: Bab Mansour, Heri es-Souani and square Hedim. Free dinner and overnight stay at the hotel.

Day 4: Meknes – Fez
The fourth day of our tour we will go to Fez and do a guided tour of the oldest of the imperial cities. Founded in 808 as the first political, religious and cultural capital, Fez possesses an impressive medina that is a UNESCO world heritage site. The first stage of the visit will be the golden doors of the royal palace and the Jewish Area. Later, we will go up to the outer wall, which is a great spot for taking photos, and from there we will go to a ceramics workshop to see the traditional work with clay, which becomes terracotta after being cooked in an open oven. Once in the medina, we will do a walk through the labyrinthine streets and reach the zone of artisans (carpet weavers, goldsmiths, tanners…), that have imported from Spain centuries ago their craft knowledge, maintaining the Andalusian art and style to this day, by giving to Fez the deserved name of “city of craftsmen.” Free dinner and overnight stay in the hotel.

Day 5: Fez – Marrakech
Around 9:00 am we will leave Fez and head towards Marrakech, the center of Morocco. We will cross the village Ouled Ayyad, the city of sugar, and Beni Mellal, where we will stop for lunch. In the late afternoon, we will reach the red city just in time to see the sun set over the walls of its ancient medina. Free dinner and overnight stay in the hotel.

Day 6: Marrakech
After breakfast, we will start the day with a guided tour of Marrakech. We will visit its ancient medina, its colorful souks and its famous tourist sites (the Menara, palaces El Badia and El Bahia, the Saadian tombs) and the beautiful square Jemaa el Fna, with its lively atmosphere both day and night. Free dinner and overnight stay in the hotel.

Day 7: Marrakech – Airport
Transfer to the airport at the appointed time.
