  • Day 1 : Arrival

    Description :

    Start Fez.

    Day 2 : Fez

    Description :

    Our Moroccan experience starts with a full day discovering Fez, the intellectual and religious heart of Morocco. Fez has many mosques and medersas (theological colleges) including the ninth century Karouine University, whose architecture is very similar to that seen in Moorish Spain. We see wonderful mosaics and carved woodwork in Medersa Bou Ananiya, a group of buildings from the fourteenth century which also include an elegant minaret overlooking Talaa Kebira. We also visit the famous medina in Fez, which is one of the largest in the world. In its immense and confusing warren of souks there are thousands of craftsmen in their tiny shops opening onto the narrow alleyways. Noisy and pungent, hot and claustrophobic, the medina of Fez is a totally absorbing and unique experience. Finally, our guide will take us to the Jewish District (mellah), the Royal Palace and a panoramic viewpoint over the medina.

    Day 3 : Volubilis

    Description :

    After breakfast we travel to Volubilis, a UNESCO World Heritage Site thanks to housing the largest and best preserved Roman ruins in North Africa. Despite the damage caused by the 1755 earthquake, this important Roman town managed to retain some detailed and very beautiful mosaics. Our next destination is another city that was part of the Roman Empire - the Imperial city of Meknes, originally known as Miknasa after the Berber tribe who settled here in the 10th century. We delve further into this country's amazing history as we journey from the old capital, Meknes, to the current capital of Morocco, Rabat. We visit the famous Mohammed V Mausoleum, Hassan Tower and enjoy a short break at the pretty walled Kasbah of Oudaias.

    Day 4 : City Tour

    Description :

    This morning we visit the exteriors of the impressive Hassan II Mosque, which displays the finest work Islamic craftsmen can produce, and we learn how historically important Casablanca was for Morocco. We then board our train in the early afternoon for our four-hour journey to Marrakech. This wonderful experience gives us time to reflect on the historically rich North and prepares us for a completely different aspect of Morocco. There is time in the evening to stretch our legs and visit the famous Djemaa el Fna Square, around which Marrakech revolves. The name literally means 'place of death', as it was where Sultans used to display the heads of their enemies. Now, with the food stalls, snake charmers, water-sellers, traveling musicians and acrobats, it is a place of entertainment for both Moroccan and overseas visitors.

    Day 5 : City Tour

    Description :

    We set off on a guided tour in the morning (on foot) to see the spectacular sites of Marrakech. Our city guide will take us to the Bahia Palace, the Saadian tombs, which date back to the 16th century. There is then some free time to visit the largest mosque in Marrakech, Koutoubia, and venture through the old streets of the medina to the Koranic School and the Museum of Marrakech. The afternoon is free to explore the labyrinth of souks off Djemaa el Fna Square and try some bartering techniques or simply enjoy a freshly squeezed orange juice in one of the many rooftop caf�s overlooking the square.
