ITINERARY

You will be picked up by your driver in your Hotel in Casablanca or at Casablanca port and start your drive to Meknes. Meknes, once capital of Morocco is a historic city full of life. The souks are spacious and ideal to explore. See the beautiful gate of Bab el-Mansour at the Place el Hedim, maybe the most beautiful of all the gates of the imperial cities. We will visit the mausoleum of Mulay Ismail and his corn attics and stables named Heri es-Souani which once accommodated up to 12'000 horses. After your lunch break in a typical restaurant in Meknes, we will drive about 40 min to Volubilis. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is the largest of its kind in North Africa and very well preserved. It lies in a strategic position about 33 km north of Meknes and is famous for its mosaics. The best time for a visit is in springtime, when the wild flowers are in full bloom amongst the old stones. The roman city is over 2'000 years old and was destroyed at least at a big earthquake 1755. You can explore this fascinating site by your own or with a local guide. There is also a new museum on site. After this day full of highlights, you will be dropped off in your Hotel in Casablanca or at Casablanca port in the evening.
