4-night itinerary in Fes and Rabat
Arrive: Fes Airport
Depart: Rabat Airport
Your stay in Fes
Fes is of course the diamond in the crown of Morocco’s Imperial cities. Home to the world’s first university, the oldest walled ‘Medina’ city on earth and some of the most stunning architecture in North Africa, Fes is a feast for the senses.
During your stay in Fes, we recommend taking a full day guided tour to see the main sites and to visit the potteries, tanneries and markets.
Another worthwhile experience to add to your list is a well organised culinary class which we can offer you right here at Riad Maison Bleue in our own purpose-built cooking school.
On your second day in Fes you might consider leaving the city and heading up into the middle Atlas Mountains. Here you will drive and walk through stunning scenery, visit traditional mountain villages including Sefrou and Azrou.
Combine Fes with a couple of nights in Rabat on the coast
Leave Fes and drive through nearby Meknes (was the capital city in the 17th century) where you will stop to visit the Here es-Souani tower, the Boy Inania Madrasa (Coranic school) and the Mausoleum of Moulay Ismail. It is also possible to drive through and visit the Roman site of Volubilis on your way to Fes.
Continue on to Rabat where for a two-night stay in the delightfully quiet capital of Morocco. Sea facing and with its twin city of Sale on the other site of the Bou Regreg river to visit, you will enjoy many quiet cafes and art galleries in the medina of Rabat as well as lovely avenues to wander through in the newer areas of the city. Visit the Tour Hassan (the Mausoleum of the late King Mohammed V).
