Day 1: From Fes to visit Meknes then to Chefchaouen
Join our 2-day tour from Fes to Chefchaouen and start your journey with a visit to the historic city of Meknes. After a scenic drive of less than an hour, you will arrive in Meknes and visit the Roman ruins of Volubilis, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Volubilis was once the administrative center of the kingdom of Mauretania, and its well-preserved ruins offer a glimpse into Morocco’s ancient past.
Next, head to Bab El Mansour, one of the most iconic architectural gates in Morocco. It is the main entrance to the old medina of Meknes and a testament to the city’s imperial grandeur.
Continue to Heri-Es Souani, one of Moulay Ismail’s finest architectural projects. This vast water reservoir once supplied Meknes with water and housed over 12,000 horses. Visitors can explore the reservoir and learn about its fascinating history.
Finally, visit the prison of Kara, an old underground prison built in the 18th century. This mysterious prison is said to have held many prisoners, including a Portuguese prisoner whose name it bears.
