    8 Days Morocco Itinerary

    Day 1: Arrival in Casablanca & Transfer to Chefchaouen Via Rabat

    The first day of your 8-day tour in Morocco begins with a pickup from the international airport in Casablanca. Toward the Moroccan capital, Rabat. Rabat boasts an abundance of historical buildings. Despite the striking similarities in architectural styles, Moroccan cities are characterized by encircling walls, thick wooden doors, mosques, and majestic palaces. Each of them has its own charm and unique architectural aesthetic. The Kasbah of Oudayas is one of Rabat’s distinctive historical buildings.

    Its distinctiveness extends beyond its historical significance; its unique location significantly contributes to this distinction. It is situated in the heart of Rabat’s distinctive white city, offering sweeping views of the sea and the Bouregreg River. Sultan Abd al-Mu’min al-Mawhad built it eight centuries ago, in 1165. Since then, it has been the preferred place for kings and sultans to reside.

    Visit Hassan Tower!

    After that, we visit Hassan’s hermitage. Only the Kasbah of the Oudayas, opposite it, rivals the stature of this towering hermitage in time and space. It is located adjacent to both the ocean and the river. Although the minaret remained alone in this place, the tomb of King Mohammed V began to fill up after the late King Hassan II built it as a tomb for his father. The boy soon joined his father and his brother, Prince Abdullah, to settle down a few meters away from a mosque that was still under construction. Next, we continue our lifetime journey to Chefchaouen, where you will spend your first night in Morocco.

    Meals included:  Breakfast

    Distance: 344 km

    Duration: 6–7 Hours with Stops

    Day 2: Chefchaouen - Volubilis - Meknes - Fes

    After enjoying a delicious breakfast in the northern city of Chefchaouen, your Moroccan adventure continues as you explore numerous charming sites. This will immerse us in the depths of history and civilization. And no doubt, the first stop that we are going to make is in Volubilis. Volubilis is a city that continues to preserve its glories and architectural splendor. It captivates visitors and draws them from across the globe. Here, visitors or lovers of historical monuments can stop and relive the Roman era that North Morocco or North Africa knew.

    The visitor can learn about the legend of Hercules wrestling around this place with the giant snake “Hydra.” Or see the statue of the god of wine, “Bacchus.” The statue mysteriously vanished in 1982. The city’s location also allows lovers of historical monuments to see the Arc de Triomphe. And the famous Capitol Temple. The ruins of the court and public square, along with the remnants of mills, olive presses, bathrooms, food stores, ovens, and marble columns that withstand the test of time, are all still visible today. Roman art inlays and inscriptions adorn the floor.

    Head to Meknes!

    After strolling through this fabulous site in Volubilis, we move towards Meknes. The earliest of the eleven centuries saw the founding of the Ismaili Capital, an ancient city, as a military settlement. But later, under King Moulay’s rule, the city became the kingdom’s capital. Extensive gardens, numerous edifices, mosques, and monuments transformed it into an impressive city. The city also boasts 40 kilometers of robust walls and unique historic gates.

    The eighteenth century marked the end of Meknes’ glory days with the death of Sultan Ismail and the earthquake of 1755, which destroyed parts of the city. UNESCO listed the city of Meknes as a World Heritage Site in 1996, citing its exceptional design that harmoniously combined elements of Islamic and European design and planning. From Meknes, we finally drive to our destination Fes. Upon arrival, we will transfer you after a full day of exploration and enjoyment to rest and relax in a first-rate riad or hotel.
