Visit the former capital of Morocco and touch the ancient Roman ruins that hide a 2000-year old city that was destroyed in 1755 by an earthquake. Marvel the beautiful gate of Bab el-Mansour at the Place el Hedim (a sample of classical Berber architecture) that is considered the most beautiful of all the gates of the imperial cities. This tour will help you explore the history and Berber culture in detail.

What to expect?

Itinerary:

  • You will be picked up by your driver at your Hotel in Casablanca or at your cruise ship in Casablanca port and start your journey to Meknès. Meknès, once the capital of Morocco is a historic city full of life. The souks are spacious and ideal to explore.
  • See the beautiful gate of Bab el-Mansour at the Place el Hedim, maybe the most beautiful of all the gates of the imperial cities. Visit the mausoleum of Mulay Ismail and his corn attics and stables that are called Heri es-Souani, which once accommodated up to 12,000 horses.
  • After your lunch break in a typical restaurant in Meknès (not included), drive for approximately forty minutes to Volubilis. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is the largest of its kind in North Africa and very well preserved. It lies in a strategic position about 33 km north of Meknès and is famous for its mosaics.
  • The best time for a visit is in springtime when the wildflowers are in full bloom among the old stones. The Roman city is over 2000 years old and was destroyed in 1755 by an earthquake. You can explore this fascinating site on your own or with a local guide. There is also a new museum on site.
