Options for your Morocco Vacation Itinerary
Once you have worked out the basics for your Morocco vacation package, it is time to nail down those details to make sure that you get the very best vacation for you. The first thing to think about is where you would like to begin your adventure. Here are some of the most popular Morocco Vacation packages that you can choose from:
Vacation Packages From Marrakech
Marrakech is a popular place to begin a Morocco adventure. This historic city has a range of amazing sights and attractions to explore, and you will not be short for things to see and do before you even set foot outside the city. The city of Marrakesh, with its maze-like mediaeval quarter and souks is one of the country’s most popular destinations and is Morocco’s best known Imperial City.
The Marrakech Medina is where most visitors to Morocco will end up – a chaotic crowd fills the busting narrow streets, haggling at market stalls, getting lost in the maze of alleyways, watching musicians, performers and snake charmers. Yet in spite of the crowds this is also a place where you can relax and unwind. Magical, maze-like streets, hidden gems and secret gardens mean that Marrakech feels, at times, untouched by the modern world.
Visit Bahia Palace, one of the main, historic sites of the city. Bahia Palace is an ornate structure dating from the 19th Century, with 160 rooms, several courtyards, and around 8 acres of pleasant gardens. Another must-see historic site is Koutoubia Mosque. It is in the Almohad style, and dates from the 12th Century. Five times a day, one voice rises above the din below as the muezzin calls the faithful to prayer from the top of the mosque’s minaret.
Visitors interested in history should also try to see El Badi Palace, the ruins of a royal palace dating from the 16th Century, the Almoravid Koubba, a notable domed building dating from the 12th Century, and Bab Agnaou, one of 19 grand city gates that were built here during the 1100s.
Itineraries From Marrakech
From this city, we can help you plan day trips and multi-day tours to the various different regions of the country, from the coast, to the desert, to the mountains, to the imperial cities of the north. This is a good place from which to venture out to see what else the country has to offer.
Head south into the desert, to Ait Ben Haddou, Ouarzazate, Zagora, Merzouga, and the famous dunes, such as those of Erg Chebbi.
Head high into the Altas Mountains, to explore the beautiful scenery and spend some time in one or more of the region’s famous Berber villages.
Make your way northwards, to other Imperial cities, like Fez, Meknes or Rabat, for more historic gems and enticing cultural attractions.
Or venture westwards towards the coast to enjoy the cool breezes and beautiful beaches of Agadir, Essaouira, or other beach resorts and coastal settlements.
Vacation Packages From Fez
Another great place to begin a Morocco vacation itinerary is in Fez. Often referred to as Morocco’s cultural capital, Fez is another place where you could consider basing yourself during a holiday in this amazing country. Known for the walled medina of Fez el Bal, and for its vibrant souks and historic Marinid architecture, Fez can be the highlight of a visit to Morocco.
There is easily enough to see and do in Fez El Bali to fill several days, with many magical corners and hidden gems to discover. While much of the joy of a visit here lies in simply getting a little lost in the maze of mosques, medersas, marvellous alleys and sumptuous souks, there are also plenty of specific sights to see.
One of the most enticing is the Chouara Tannery. Crammed into the space between ancient alleyways and buildings, this is the largest and best known of the city’s three tanneries. Here you will find a series of stone wells, each one filled with liquid of a different colour. This brightly coloured and pungent site is where hides are brought to be preserved and dyed, to be turned into a number of clothing items, textiles, handbags, jackets and other items that are for sale throughout the city and wider afield.
Itineraries From Fez
Once you have taken some time to explore the city, you may also wish to take a day trip or excursion to one or more of the other interesting places in the vicinity. Top attractions that are easily reachable from Fez include Meknes, one of Morocco’s four imperial cities.
Meknes was founded by the Alaouite Sultan Ismail Ibn Sharif, who reigned between 1672 and 1727. It was he who had the city walls of Meknes built and made the settlement his capital. A range of 17th Century historic sites can be seen here, in a city-scape that showcases the harmonious blending of Islamic and European styles of the period.
Amongst the major sites here are a number of remains of the city fortifications, including grand gates such as Bab El Khemis and Bab Berdaine. Within Meknes medina, you will find the Grand Mosque, which dates from the 12th Century, and Dar Jamai, once the home of the Jamai family, now an important Moroccan art museum. You will also discover Dar El Mahkzen – the sultan’ Moulay Ismail’s official palace and also his mausoleum. There are plenty more historic and cultural sites to discover.
Another site also often included on an itinerary from Fez is the important archaeological site of Volubilis. It was developed as a Berber and then proto-Carthaginian settlement before becoming the capital of Mauretania. The settlement grew rapidly under Roman rule and is one of the most important Roman sites in the country. Made rich, largely due to the olive growing locally, the populace here constructed many fine villas, or town houses, with large mosaics. Today, this is a UNESCO world heritage site, listed for being a well-preserved example of a large Roman colonial town on the fringes of the empire.
Ifrane National Park
If you like nature you should most definitely head to the Ifrane National Park, much of which is covered by woodland of Atlas Cedar. This is also an important habitat for Barbary Macaques. A perfect place for hiking or wildlife watching.
Of course, you could also head southwards from Fez to Marrakesh, or to the mountains, desert or coast as you continue on your ultimate Morocco vacation packages.
Vacation Packages on the Coast
You could also choose to spend your time in Morocco on the coast. You could either base yourself, or begin your Morocco vacation itinerary in the Morocco beach vacation destination of Agadir, or another popular coastal resort – Essaouira.
Agadir, and Essaouira are two of the best known and most enticing Marrakech coastal destinations. Agadir’s main attraction is its beautiful crescent shaped beach, and this is a popular resort destination. For the more adventurous, Agadir is also the gateway to the coastal Souss-Massa National Park, and to Taroudant and the southern desert areas inland, with their dunes and oases which can be explored by camel, by jeep or in a range of other ways. Imouzzer’s ‘Paradise Valley’ is another popular excursion, if you are able to extend your stay and spend a little longer here on the coast.
Essa, as it is affectionately called, is a lovely place to retreat from the heat and enjoy a little fun in the sun. But Essaouira is more than just its beaches. Here you can also see a cluster of historic sites around the old citadel. This old hippie haunt is still a favourite with travellers and the alternative scene. Though the beach here has been somewhat taken over by the ageing motorhome brigade in recent years, this cool seaside town still retains its laid back vibe and gentle sense of alternative culture.
