1-From Casablanca to the holy city Moulay Driss
First, start your inspiring journey at 8h00, where your driver will pick you from your hotel or riad. Next, your first will be in Rabat, the royal capital of Morocco. If we have time we will visit the unfinished Hassan mosque which was going to be the largest Mosque in the world.
In particular, you will enjoy the morning breeze of the Atlantic ocean that the mosque overlooks. Then, we will continue our trip enjoying the coolness of the air, and we can stop on road to take some good souvenirs. After that, we will arrive at Moulay Idriss, the Holly city.
Regrettably, the city is not opened of non-Muslims, during some specific times. But if you are lucky enough, you may have the chance to explore it from the inside. Without a doubt, the panoramic view of the city from up on the hill is just worth seeing. Furthermore, the green tiled roofs and the white washed walls that cover the entire city will capture your senses.
Next, you will arrive at Meknes at 12h00. You can take a break relax and have lunch in one of the local-elegant restaurant ﹙lunch on your own expense, but we can guide you to find a good restaurant﹚.
After lunch, we will provide you a professional guide, in order, to stroll in the ancient medina and visit the Monuments. In this Morocco culture tour, you will have the chance to explore and get closer to the Moroccan heritage, especially, the artisanal products and the local markets.
You can not finish your guided tour in the Medina of Meknes without doing the shopping ﹙optional﹚. Your last stop is Volubilis, the roman ruins which backdate to the 3rd century BC. No doubt, you will be amazed by its soaring arches, the panoramic views of the surrounding, and the well-protected mosaics. The place is well venerated, and considered as UNESCO’s world heritage site today.
