Full Itinerary

Saturday:  CASABLANCA
You will arrive at Casablanca airport and be transferred to the hotel. The hotel’s restaurant is only open until 22h30 so if you arrive late you will not be able to have dinner.
Overnight:  Casablanca  (D)

Sunday:  CASABLANCA – RABAT
Casablanca is considered Morocco’s economic capital. Visit the central market, the Habbous district, the Royal Palace, Mohamed V square, the residential area of Anfa and the exterior of the impressive Hassan ll Mosque in Casablanca. Then depart for Rabat, Morocco’s Administrative capital. During a tour of Rabat you will visit the Royal Palace (Mechouar), the Kabah of the Odayas and Hassan Tower.  
Overnight:  Rabat  (BD)

Monday:  RABAT – MEKNES – FEZ
Drive to Meknes. In the heart of the delightful Moroccan countryside, Meknes is one of Morocco’s most striking imperial cities. It is surrounded by 40km of defensive walls and a series of monumental gateways, the most impressive of which is Bab al-Mansour.  Visit the Royal Stables and the Jewish quarter before departing for Volubilis. It was a thriving settlement until the 4th century, with fine mosaics, sculptures and kitchenware. The city’s architectural splendour is ample proof of its rich past. Thereafter continue to Fez.  
Overnight:  Fez  (BD)

Tuesday:  FEZ
The day will be entirely devoted to exploring Fes, the spiritual capital of Morocco. Surrounded by walls, it is the world’s oldest and most intact medieval city, with some 9000 intricate streets and alleys, exotic overlapping souks and a timeless swirl of smells, colours and voices. A visit to the bustling Medina is like entering another world. See the Attarine and Bou Anania Medersas, Nejjarine fountain, Foundouq Nejjarine (Museum of woods), the Moulay Idriss Mausoleum and the 9th century Karaouine Mosque (from outside). In the afternoon visit the esplanade of the Royal Palace with its magnificent golden door and then explore Fez Jdid.

Overnight:  Marrakech  (BD)

Friday:  MARRAKECH
The exploration of Marrakech continues this morning with a visit to Majorelle Garden where one will find buildings with French architecture due to the connection the Garden has with the iconic French designer Yves Saint Laurent.

Overnight:  Ouarzazate  (BD)

Sunday:  OUARZAZATE – ZAGORA
