There are 3 parts in Fes, the modern part, the Mellah, and the old part or also called Fes El Bali. The most visited is the old part, it’s where tourists attractions are:
Bab Boujloud, the blue gate:
The main gate or the entrance to the old medina is through the gate of Boujloud. It’s beautifully designed in 1913 and admired to take pictures. However, there are 10 other gates to enter.
A Madrasa refers to a school, It was built in 1323 by the Marinid sultan Uthman II Abu Said. The name Attarine came from the spices sellers, for the reason that there is a souq or market around there for spices. Its location is not far from the mosque or the university of Al Qarawiyyin. Also, it is considered one of the biggest and highest achievements of the Marinid architecture for its design.
Madrasa Bou Inania:
This Madrasa was founded by the Marinid ruler of Morocco Abu Inan Faris in 1351. It’s almost the same as the Madrassa of Attarine.
The university of Al Qarawiyyin:
This has to be a should visit the attraction, it was built by a woman whose name is Fatima El Fihri in 859 as a mosque first. Then, it was turned into a university to be the first and the oldest university in the world that is still functioning. Even more, it is older than Alma Mater Studiorum in Italy Bologna. However, on the internet you may find that Alma is older, that’s because Qarawiyyin was a mosque firstly.
There are three main tanneries in Fes where they make leather. However, the best, the most visited and the largest is the tannery of Chouara. It was built in the 11th century, and it’s where locals tread skins in dyeing pit barefoot.
Fes is a lucky city that king Mohammed V has built two palaces here. Not to mention, he has about 12 ones all around Morocco. One of these two, the one that is near the Jewish quarter, El Mellah is professionally designed with 7 golden gates.
The highlight of our Morocco itinerary 10 days tour from Casablanca is Merzouga:
Merzouga, the Sahara desert of Morocco. This small town is the best and highlight of our 10 days tour Morocco itinerary from Casablanca. Here, expect many activities and things to do.
First, the main activity to do here is to ride the camels trekking across the Erg Chebbi sand dunes. Also, you can book a circuit with camels for days and live the life of Touaregs.
Second, most of the tourists who do camel trekking in Merzouga do it to spend overnight at Berber tents. Here, you can experience the lifestyle of the people who travel all the time in the Sahara with their tents.
Third, for a full day in the Merzouga desert, the Srij lake is an attraction to visit here. It’s where you will find the camels herding, the birds of the flamingos which are emigrated.
Fourth, for music lovers, we recommend the big village of Khamlia. Here, you can enjoy the Gnaoua people playing Krakebs and drums.
Fifth, visit the nomads who live in tents around the dunes. Also, discover how they live their lives and where they keep their herd.
Todgha Gorges and Dades gorges are worth places to explore with our 10 days Morocco itinerary:
The canyons of Todgha Gorges are one of the fascinating things to see with our 10 days tour itinerary in Morocco. These canyons are about 300 meters in height and there is a river crossing in between. Also, the water that is crossing there is powerful that it made its way across the rocks, and it doesn’t usually get dry. Moreover, there are some people who like climbing and hiking, they come to have picnics there.
Dades Gorges is also a worth visiting place, it’s between Marrakech and the Sahara desert of Merzouga. Therefore, some people to split the road because it takes more than 7h drive between the two cities, they spend the night here. This place is famous for its canyons, in some parts, there are mountains which are shaped like the monkey toes. Also, there are famous curves named Tissdrine, it’s where they made an advertisement for Cadillac.
Ouarzazate, the Ouallywood of Africa:
Ouarzazate is the gate to the Sahara, it consists of two words, Ouar “without”, and Zazate “noise”, the city without noise. This city is famous for the cinema studios. Therefore, it’s an attraction you will explore with our 10 days itinerary with our Morocco tours.
All of our tours from Casablanca include or pass by Ouarzazate. Here, you can get a ticket to have a look at the cinema studio of the atlas. It’s where they made some parts of the movies. For instance, they shot a part of the famous movie Lawrence of Arabia.
Moreover, Ouarzazate is famous for the Kasbah of Taourirt that was built by Glaoui Thami in the 19th century.
Furthermore, as Ouarzazate is on the Sahara side, the sun hits this city that it gets 48 °C during the summer. Therefore, the government of Morocco has made the biggest solar station in Africa here. Also, the location of the station is about 10 Km from the center of Ouarzazate.
The Kasbah of Ait Benhaddou:
There are many Kasbahs in Morocco. Still, the best and the most visited is the Kasbah of Ait Benhaddou. Touring In Morocco offers 10 days tour from Casablanca to various Kasbahs. However, Ait Benhaddou is free of tickets or fees. The original word of Kasbah is Kasab, which means bamboo in Arabic or Berber, and the proves of the kasbah is built with it. You may also hear the term Ksar, usually written on the signs of Ait Benhaddou, that’s actually not correct because Ksar is different than a Kasbah and usually Ksar is Arabic and can also refer to a palace.
The Kasbah is a worthy place to hike to, you will learn that building can also be maintained with clay and straw. Also, you will visit the small houses of the Touarges who used to trade slat mascara, cole, and other goods here. Not to mention, those people who come to trade here are Berbers from south Africa like Tombouctou. I am not sure if you have heard the term Tombouctou 52 days. That is to say, they used to travel 52 days from different south African countries to Morocco to trade in Rissani, Ait Benhaddou, Marrakech, and other places. Then, of course, they continue their trip across Europe.
There are two main gates to enter to the Kasbah, one is to cross the river that is called Oued El Maleh. In other words, the salty river referring to the touaregs who used to trade salt in it.
Most importantly, the Kasbah is a suitable place to shot movies. Therefore, many famous movies were made here. For instance, they made a part of the British-American drama Gladiator and Lawrence of Arabia in 1962. For this reason, many people travel here and book Morocco tours to explore the site.
Marrakech is a should explore city with our 10 days tour from Casablanca:
Marrakech is the most visited city by tourists. Therefore, it’s also called the tourist city, and the red city because of its color. This big city is one of Morocco’s imperial cities, it was the capital city of Morocco before Meknes and Rabat, and after Fes. Also, the city was built in 1062 by Yusuf ibn Tashfin. There are many things to see and d here.

Third, For those who like art, there is this beautiful garden called Majorelle, it’s at the new part of Marrakech, Gueliz. Here, john Jacques Majorelle has made an art gallery about Morocco and especially Marrakech. Also, to take into consideration that this garden took this French artist about 40 years to build it.
