The day begins with pickup from your accommodation in Fes or Meknes and travels via the highway to the capital of Morocco, Rabat. As you enter the city, admire views of the coastline and the distinctive red walls which line 5 km of the capital. Follow your guide through the Medina and into one of the city’s most authentic souks. Wander though the colorful stalls, soaking up the unique sights, smells, and sounds that surround you while mingling with the locals going about their day. Next, visit the Oudayas Kasbah, a fascinating UNESCO World Heritage Listed site which dates back to the twelfth century. Later, head to the Hassan Tower to marvel at its four facades, decorated in shades of pink and gray. After the tower, see the remains of the Old Mosque and the Mausoleum of Mohamed V, a masterpiece of traditional Moroccan architecture which is home to an array of valuables. From here, travel to the Royal Palace where you can learn about the king of the Merinides dynasty. Once you’ve worked up a bit of an appetite, enjoy lunch at a local restaurant before the return journey to your accommodation.
