Full description
Your tour will begin as you are picked up at 10.00AM from your accommodation in Fes. From there you will start driving through the magnificent changing landscapes of the Moroccan countryside. Your first stop will be to the mesmerizing Chahed River, a beautiful landscape with captivating views. From there you will advance towards Volubilis, the ancient Roman Ruins which date back to the 3rd century B.C. Once there you will be able to glimpse the old Roman Empire, and admire the captivating architecture and majestic designs while taking some pictures of Arch of Caracalla. Your second stop will be to Moulay Idriss Zerhoun, a sacred little village in which you can enjoy some free time to go into the deep history of the beautiful town, the home of Idriss I. He was the first Moroccan ruler, and was the one who brought Islam to Morocco. Here you will be able to walk through the ancient windy streets whilst admiring the beautiful architecture. Afterwards, you will explore "Meknes", whose historical 17th-century heritage provides the perfect location to enjoy a tour through the old city to discover the huge walls of the old Medina and see the most breathtaking handicrafts and traditional small shops. Next, you will discover the fascinating gate of Bab El Mansour, a magnificent gateway which is well preserved with lavish "zellige" (Moroccan mosaic tile work). In addition, you will visit Moulay Ismail’s shrine to receive an insight into his interesting life and everlasting achievements. You will also visit fascinating historical sites, such as the Mausoleum and the Rouah, as well as the royal stables (which hold over 12,000 horses). You will later explore Place el-Hedim, which is a central pedestrian square in the Medina. Following an unforgettable tour, you will be returned back to your accommodation in Fes.

Paysages magnifiques et très diversifiés, passant par toutes les couleurs de terre; ocre jaune, noire, blanche, rouge et bien sur le vert des prairies et plus soutenu des arbres et le bleu des points d'eau. A voir absolument. Et au milieu de cette diversité de couleur des villages à flanc de colline comme Moulay Idriss et la très caractéristique Meknès
