This morning, after breakfast, you will be met at your hotel by your driver and depart for Fez.
En-route you will travel via the sacred town of Moulay Idriss and have a guided tour of the Roman ruins at Volubilis, and a guided tour of Meknes with local English speaking guides en-route. You will arrive into Fez in the late afternoon.
Volubilis or “Oualilli” as it is known in Berber, easily ranks among the best preserved Roman towns in North Africa. Located barely 2 miles from Moulay Idriss, Volubilis was once the home of Cleopatra’s daughter who eventually married the Berber King Juba II. Most recently, Volubilis served as a backdrop for the movie “Patton.”
Meknes, It is often used as movie backdrops by film producers from all over the world. The city most glorious days were under Sultan Moulay Ismail (1672-1727), a contemporary of Louis XIV of France, whom he tried to emulate. During his reign, the Sultan attempted to construct the “Versailles of Africa!” His admiration of the French king was such that he even asked for Louis’ daughter’s hand in marriage. You will see during your visit of Meknes, Bab Mansour (The Victorious gateway): This monumental gateway separates the central square of the Medina, Place el Hedim from Moulay Ismail’s vast enclosed imperial city. It has come to symbolize Meknes, it is reproduced in countless books, articles, postcards and posters. Dar Jamai Museum is a 19th century vizier’s palace that now houses a collection of Moroccan arts. Overnight at Riad El Amine Fes .
After breakfast at the hotel, city tour of Fez :
Fez El-Bali : Visit the Medressa (Koranic university) Bou Inania, the Medressa Attarine, countless souks, the famous tanneries, and countless other sites including the narrow and cobbled streets of Fez are filled with ancient mosques, towering minarets, crumbling fondouks (inns for medieval travelers and their animals) and narrow openings into the private world beyond : an architecture of carved cedar portals, brilliantly colored mosaic tiles, and green glazed roofs. In Fez, veiled women still hurry through the streets, donkeys- laden their wares – take their time, and craftsmen forge objects much as they did centuries ago.
If time allows, visit the Dar Batha Museum.

Dar Si Said Museum: museum of Moroccan Arts housing a collection of southern Berber jewelry and weapons. There are also displays of eighteenth and nineteenth century wood carving, Berber rugs, traditional weeding chairs and typical Moroccan costumes.
Souks: It is a riot of color, noise and activity, a wealthy storehouse of all the treasures of this vast and varied country. You will find all the silver merchants in one corner, all the gold merchants in another, and rows of stalls selling exclusively leatherwork or copper goods or jewelry. The real fascination is to watch the craftsmen at work, gilding on leather, or inlaying with enamel the sheaths of ornate silver daggers, hammering out copper, embroidering silks or smoothing out the surface of cedar wood table.
The Djemâa El Fna square: The name literally translated is the Mosque or Assembly of death. It is taken to refer to the custom of displaying the heads of vanquished rebels or criminals, since the square is known to be a place of public execution even up to the last century. Then it has been a center for public meetings and even riots. Today it provides constant ever-changing entertainment, which reaches its climax at sunset continues late at night. It is a square where a real image and the charm of Moroccan folklore is operating : story tellers, snake charmers, acrobats, folkloric bands.
