Full description
Discover one of Morocco’s four imperial cities and the remains of the former capital of the kingdom of Mauretania on a full-day tour from Fez.

Following a pickup from your hotel in Fez, enjoy an easy transfer by air-conditioned vehicle to the Roman ruins of Volubilis. Explore the remains of the 2000 year old complex. Continue to Moulay Idriss to discover one of Morocco's holiest cities. Take a tour of the narrow streets of the compact town where Moulay Idriss I introduced the religion of Islam in 789 AD. Then, transfer to the city of Meknes, founded in the 11th century by the Almoravids as a military settlement.

Go into the Medina and see some of the monumental city gates and ornamental decorations of the Spanish-Moorish architecture. Tour the city walls, and stop at the Mausoleum of Moulay Ismail, founder of the Alaouite dynasty and sultan when Meknes was the capital city. Visit the Museum of Moroccan Art to see a wide variety of handicrafts. Before the afternoon transfer back to Fez.
