Let yourself be guided through the maze that is Fez medina, and see the world's oldest university. After lunch visit Meknes, the 18th century capital of Morocco, the holy town of Moulay Idriss, and the Roman ruins at Volubilis on this full-day tour.
What to Expect
In the morning, be guided around Fez's medina. Founded in the 9th century, the walled city is packed with ancient mosques, palaces, fountains, and inns. Considered one of the best-preserved historic towns in the Muslim world, a highlight of any visit to the old medina must be setting eyes on the oldest university in the world.

In the afternoon, you will be driven to Meknes an hour away. The 18th century capital of Morocco, Meknes is alive with history. Its central pedestrian square is well worth a visit, as are its souks. The markets in Meknes are refreshingly spacious compared to those in Fez, making this a great city in which to pick up some pretty trinkets. The tour also stops off at the city's famous stables and attics.

Next stop is the World Heritage Site of Volubilis, the largest and best-preserved Roman ruins in North Africa. Over 2000 years old, the ruins of Volubilis are particularly noted for their beautiful mosaic floors, original carvings, and views to the foothills of Rif mountain.

Leaving Volubilis, 5 minutes drive takes you to the hillside settlement of Moulay Idriss. Here, the Moroccan saint, and grandson of prophet Mohammed, was buried in the 8th century. The town of Moulay Idriss has long been a spiritual site and place of pilgrimage, and was for a long time the only mosque that non-Muslims could visit in Morocco, such was the special status of Moulay Idriss.

Then it is time to head back to the hotel in Fez, after a day packed with famous sites.
