Itinerary

Day 1 - Arrive Fes

On arrival at Fes Airport you will be met by a local representative and transferred to your hotel.

Fes is the oldest of the four Imperial Cities in Morocco. It dominated the country’s religious, cultural and political life for thousands of years and was the political capital of the country until 1912, when the French moved it to Rabat.

Take time to relax. 

Overnight: Palais Faraj

 

Day 2 - Explore Fes

Today you take a step back in time to the Middle Ages when you visit Fes El Bali, the largest living medieval Medina-city and cultural heart of Morocco.
The city was founded in the 8th Century AD by Moulay Idriss I. The Imperial capital was a renowned center of medieval learning. In the neighbouring building is the Attarine Medersa (Koranic college), a jewel of Hispano-Moorish architecture, built in the 14th Century.
Your sightseeing also includes a visit to the Nejjarine Square, Fondouq (Caravanserai), Dar Batha and the Museum of Moroccan Arts.
Continue your visit to Fes El Jedid (New Fes), built by the Merinid Dynasty in the 13th Century. Here you will see the Royal Palace, mosques, medersas (schools), souks and the city wall.
Most notably, Fes El Jedid is home to the Mellah, the old Jewish quarter, which provides an interesting insight into Jewish architecture. The medieval Medina is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

This afternoon discover wonderful Marrakech Gardens. You start with the Menara Gardens, where tranquility and comparative coolness makes it one of the most pleasant and romantic places for taking a stroll in Marrakech. Its large central lake was dug in the 12th century at the time of Almohade.

Continue to the Majorelle Gardens, created in the 1920's by the French painter Jacques Majorelle. Built around a small Art Deco workshop and painted a bright blue, which is now named Majorelle and a very unique and special colour.
