DAY TO DAY ITINERARY

Upon your arrival at Tangier Port, you will meet your guide to begin your journey to Fez, visiting along the way at various noteworthy historic highlights. This trip of three days journey will take you from imperial Rome to the ninth century A.D. (Of course there will be stops along the way.)

The first visit will be the ancient Roman city of Volubilis. Capitan of Roman department of Mauritania (modern-day Morocco) during the reign of Caracalla. Volubilis is impressively well preserved and the genius of Roman urbanism is still intact. The two central integral streets in every Roman Castrum, the Cardo, and Decumanus are prominent. The Cardo is the boulevard which runs north-south and the Decumanus, east-west. The intersection of the two is the heart of every Roman city. There you will find the ruins of the ancient forum.

You will also do a walking tour of Moulay Idriss, founded in the 8th century by Moulay Idris Al Akbar, grandson of the Prophet Mohamed (s.a.w.s). The city was founded primarily for the indigenous population that migrated with Moulay Idris from the Middle East. You will drive around 15 miles to the next stop, the imperial city of Meknes. Meknes is a 17th Century city built by Moulay Ismail to rival Fez. It is also considered to be the Versailles of Morocco.

Finally, you have reached your destination, the ninth century city of Fez. In the evening, you will get a taste of the greatest of the Imperial Cities. You will visit the sights on the outside of the ancient walled city, including the ramparts, the gates, and the Borjs (Moorish Forts). After this introductory aperitif to Fez, you will dine in your hotel and prepare for full day visit: Fez!

The most ancient of the imperial capitals and the complete medieval city of the Islamic world, Fez is reminiscent of a city suspended in time, unfazed by the constantly evolving world outsides of its walls. Fez owes nothing to the Western world, except electricity.

Time spent in Fez will reveal much about the sophistication of the Moroccan artisan, providing a learning experience to those who visit this marvelous old city. Your morning will be spent visiting the Medina. Our specialized guide will take you on a historic walking tour of the city of Fez starting at the King s Palace.

Then the Jewish quarter, a 15th-century citadel with all its Moorish maze architecture and medieval glory. Visits to Sephardic synagogues and mausoleums of holy Rabbis will be the highlights of this part of town. The Merinides Hills offer a panoramic view of the old walled Medina, brimful with its countless minarets that have responded to these calls to prayers for 12 centuries. Leave your vehicle outside the gate and walk the cobbled streets of Fez. Fez has preserved its Medina as it was centuries ago. Not even a bicycle is able to be used as a tool for transportation. Only donkeys, mules and horses are able to help to move all that the city produces and needs as supplies.

Visit and explore guilds, artisans workshops, mosques medersas, fountains, and Fondouk in a medieval manner of this world heritage city.

You will walk to the tannery and on to visit the great Mosque university of Al Quarrawiyyine. After that, you will visit the Medersa Attarine and walk to Sbetryyine, a guild of bookbinders, which will lead you to the Seffarine Square, not to be bothered by the tapping as metalworkers are forging their huge bronze pots. You will break for lunch then continue exploring the marvels of Fez Medina. You will return to your hotel for dinner and other accommodations recording a unique day spent in a unique city called FEZ.

Transfer to Chefchaouen in the morning for a monumental visit where our local guide will take around this magnificent city called the blue pearl of Morocco. Enjoy your lunch in its exotic sqaure, then proceed to Tangier. Travel to Tangier, and transfer to your ferry back to Spain.
