Visit morocco imperial cities

Day 1 – Casablanca
Your Dar Morocco Travel driver will meet you at Casablanca’s Mohammed V airport. Depending on the time of your arrival, you may go directly to your hotel to check in or you may start the tour of Casablanca immediately. During the city tour, you’ll see the bustling city center with its Art Deco architecture and lovely seaside neighborhoods. You’ll also tour the magnificent Hassan II mosque, which is the second largest mosque in the world and one of the few open to non-Muslims. You’ll return to your hotel in time for a leisurely dinner.

Day 2 – Rabat, Meknes, Fes
Depart for Rabat, Morocco’s capital city, and once there, see the outside of the royal palace and tour the mausoleum of the late King Mohammed V, which is always guarded by royal cavalry. You will also see the Hassan Tower and the Oudaya Kasbah, which sits high above the Bou Regreg river opposite Sale, the historic home of the Barbary pirates. From Rabat, you’ll continue to Meknes, where you’ll have lunch in this former imperial capital city, built by Moulay Ismail in the 17th century. You’ll see the ruins of the royal stables, which once housed 12,000 horses, and experience the austere beauty of the mausoleum of Moulay Ismail. Other sights in Meknes include the ancient House of Water reservoir and the magnificent city gate, Bab El Mansour. Continue to Volubulis, the ruins of the largest Roman settlement in Morocco. Arrive in Fes for dinner in your hotel or riad

Day 3 – Fes
You will spend the entire day on a guided tour of Fes, which was founded 1,000 years ago by Moulay
Idriss. During your walking tour of the labyrinthine old city (this is a day for comfortable shoes), you will
see the outside of the 13th century Karaouine mosque, tour the Bou Inaniya madrassa, and visit the souq to
learn about Moroccan crafts. After lunch in the medina, you’ll see the newer city, including the potter’s
district, which is home to Fes’ famous blue pottery. You may have dinner at your hotel or in the medina.

Day 4 – Fes, Ifrane, Beni Mellal, Marrakech
The drive from Fes to Marrakech is a long one, but in crossing the Middle Atlas Mountains, you’ll see
some lovely scenery. You will pass through Ifrane, home to a ski resort and Morocco’s prestigious private
Al-Akhawayn university, on the way to Azrou and the Tadla Valley before having lunch in Beni Mellal.
Your drive will take you through some of Morocco’s richest agricultural land before you arrive in
Marrakech for dinner at your hotel or riad

Day 5 – Marrakech
Enjoy a full day exploring Marrakech with a local guide. You’ll see the historic Koutoubia Mosque,
known for its four distinct faces, and the Saadian tombs and Bahia palace, which showcase the finest
examples of design elements such as decorative tile, painted wood, carved plaster, and calligraphy. You
will tour the souks and end your day in Jama’a el-Fna, which is a UNESCO heritage site. In Jama’a el-Fna,
you’ll see snake charmers, story-tellers, henna artists, and dancers. This square has been the heart of the
medina since the 12th century, and is home for performers, travelers, and snake oil sellers. Stop for a glass
of fresh squeezed orange juice and enjoy the carnival atmosphere. If you’re feeling brave, have a bowl of
fresh snails or some sheep’s head (or have dinner at your hotel / riad).

Day 6 – Marrakech
You have the option to spend the day exploring Marrakech on your own or relaxing at your hotel. Your
driver can take you to see other sights such as the Majorelle garden, which features a collection of exotic
plants, or the ruins of the Badia palace, still magnificent in their arrested decay. Alternately, take a round
trip to lovely Ouarika valley in the mountains or to Essaouira, the former Portuguese garrison town on the
coast.
