Your Itinerary

 
Day 1 - Arrive in Fes: We arrive in Casablanca and our guide drives us straight to Fes and to our beautiful Riad. For dinner we visit Thami’s and are not disappointed. The spice meatball tagine is delicious. We head back to our Riad excited about exploring Morocco’s oldest imperial city.
 
Day 2 - Medieval Meknes & Roman Volubilis: After breakfast we visit the 17th century medieval city of Meknes, a beautiful walled city. After exploring the castle we stop for lunch. Next we drive to Moulay Idriss, a picturesque town located on two hills, followed by a visit to the ruins of Volubilis. Evening visit to Riad Le Maison Bleue for a lesson in cooking traditional cuisine before enjoying the fruits of our labour.
 
Day 3 - Fascinating Fes: Today we are exploring Fes El Bali, the Old City built in the 9th century. We admire the Moorish architecture of the Medersas, a Koranic school and the Karaouine University. We visit the souks of the Medina and pick up some street food. After we head to Fes El Jedid, the new city built by the Merinid dynasty in the 14th century where we see the Royal Palace. Tonight we are invited to dinner with a local family, the company is wonderful and the food mouth-watering.
 
Day 4 - Casablanca Then Homeward Bound: After breakfast, we head straight to Casablanca. We ask our driver to go past Rick’s Café, the mythical saloon from the 1942 film ‘Casablanca’. After a quick photo opportunity we drive to the airport to board flight home.

About IMPERIAL CITIES HOLIDAYS

Fes, an ancient imperial city founded by Moulay Idriss in 789 is now the fourth largest in Morocco. The city is divided into three parts; the old walled city, the new city and the French section; the Ville Nouvelle. As in most Moroccan cities, the centre of town is the bustling Medina.
 
The economic capital and largest city of Morocco, where the people are much more cosmopolitan than their counterparts elsewhere in Morocco. Immortalised by Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman in the iconic movie named after the city, Casablanca has much to offer.

When To Go

Morocco’s climate tends to see more rain than its neighbours, despite it being so close to the Sahara Sands; the further South of Morocco, the hotter and drier the weather becomes. Its coastline is located on the borders of the Mediterranean and Atlantic, so during December and January the Southern Desert becomes a lot colder at night; November to March provides plenty of rain for the coast. The best time to visit Morocco is during the summer season, when rainfall is minimal and Mountain temperatures remain cool.
