The allure of further Moroccan Imperial Cities

The title of this tour refers to a set of four cities that have in common having been capitals of past kingdoms, which today are considered the seed of the current State of Morocco. This is the case in Rabat, Meknes, Fes, and Marrakech. And thanks to their glorious past, they preserve spectacular monuments, which justify a whole trip. The Kasbah of the Oudayas in Rabat, the gates of the wall of Meknes, the mosque, and Karaouine University in Fes or the Bahia Palace in Marrakech are some examples, which in some cases you can visit with an official guide.

In addition to the aforementioned Imperial Cities of Morocco, this circuit includes other places that will remain etched in your mind for different reasons.

Highlights: 6 Days in Morocco from Casablanca

Travel itinerary: 6 days tour in Morocco from Casablanca

Starting in Casablanca and ending in Marrakech, this tour of the Imperial Cities in Morocco lasts 6 days and 5 nights. Enough time to enjoy a program as complete as the one we show you below.

Day 1: From Casablanca to Rabat

This captivating tour commences in Casablanca, the largest city in Morocco. Our agency’s English-speaking driver, along with a private vehicle, will be awaiting your arrival at the airport terminal or another agreed-upon location. In Casablanca, the highlight is a visit to the grand Hassan II Mosque, renowned as one of the world’s largest mosques. Notably, it welcomes non-believers, a rarity in Morocco, allowing us to marvel at its majestic architecture, constructed with top-tier materials like marble, granite, and ceramics. Its splendid location on an artificial peninsula overlooking the Atlantic Ocean enhances the experience.

Following this, our journey takes us to Rabat, Morocco’s capital since 1912. This designation endows Rabat with the privilege of being part of this tour of Morocco’s Imperial Cities, showcasing the nation’s rich historical and aesthetic heritage. For instance, the Hassan Tower, a masterpiece of the Almohad era, bears a striking resemblance to Seville’s Giralda. You’ll also have the opportunity to explore the Kasbah of the Oudayas, a substantial walled enclave offering breathtaking views of the Bu Regreg river mouth, the neighboring city of Salé, and the bustling beaches.

In Rabat, you’ll have free time to discover its historic medina, designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Here, you can delve into the vibrant souk or explore the city’s prestigious museums at your own pace. As the day comes to a close, you’ll retreat to a charming riad in the heart of the city for a restful night.

Summary of the first day

Day 2: From Rabat to Fes via Meknes and Volubilis

On the second day of this 6-day Moroccan adventure, your journey takes you through a rich cultural tapestry. After enjoying breakfast at your riad in Rabat, your driver will be ready to embark on the road trip. Your first destination is Meknes, another jewel in Morocco’s Imperial Cities circuit. Meknes, once a glorious capital in the late 17th and early 18th centuries under Sultan Moulay Ismail, offers a glimpse into its illustrious past. You’ll explore various landmarks, including Sultan Moulay Ismail’s mausoleum and the city’s historic medina, protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The medina’s ancient city walls, adorned with impressive gates, are among the highlights.

After a leisurely exploration of Meknes, your journey continues to Volubilis, an archaeological site dating back to Roman times. Here, you’ll encounter well-preserved remnants of this ancient city, once a significant North African metropolis. Wander amid ancient temple columns, admire mosaics from grand buildings, and pass through monumental arches commissioned by emperors like Marcus Aurelius and Caracalla. Unesco has also recognized the historical significance of Volubilis by designating it as a World Heritage Site.

Following these captivating visits, you’ll return to your vehicle and head to Fes, a pivotal stop on your Imperial Cities of Morocco tour. While you’ll explore Fes more thoroughly on the following day, you can use this afternoon to acquaint yourself with the city or indulge in some shopping at its bustling souks and prestigious traditional craft stores.

Summary of the second day

Day 3: Fes

Fes occupies a prominent place in this circuit of the Imperial Cities of Morocco, as it is not only one of them but also one of the most important cultural and intellectual centers of the country and the entire Islamic world. Therefore, after breakfast at the riad, you will meet our official local guide to visit together the most interesting places of its historic center, declared World Heritage by Unesco. The walking tour will take you to such emblematic monuments and buildings as the Karaouine Mosque and the university it houses considered one of the oldest in the world. Or the Bou Inania or Attarine madrasahs, magnificent examples of Islamic art in the city. Squares such as Nejjarine or neighborhoods such as the tanners can also be places to visit on this custom-made route through the medina.

The afternoon, however, may be a good time to visit places that have been left in the chamber during the morning, such as perhaps the Jewish quarter (Mellah) or the area around the Royal Palace, where you can admire its Golden Gates. Another option is to go inside one of its museums to discover its collection, such as the Borj Nord. And of course, continue discovering the local crafts and gastronomy. In the evening, after an intense day of sightseeing, you will return to rest in your riad in the medina.

Summary of the third day

Day 4: From Fes to Marrakech

In this tour of 6 days in Morocco, the fourth day will take us to another day that has this consideration: we will travel from Fez to Marrakech, the most visited and admired city in the whole country. Therefore, after breakfast, we will leave directly to the so-called ‘Red City’, on a journey that will take us the whole morning.

Upon arrival in Marrakech, you will have free time to take the first walk around this city, full of attractions that would be impossible to visit in a single day. Therefore, you can take the opportunity to visit places and monuments that are not part of the guided tour of the next day: the modern district of Gueliz, the Majorelle Gardens, the Marrakech Museum, the Yves Saint Laurent Museum… and many other options.

You can also choose to stroll through the medina with an eye on the traditional handicraft stores or gastronomic places where you can taste local food. In fact, we will help you to find places adapted to your tastes and preferences, if you need them. At night, you will sleep in a centrally located riad, which will allow you to move around more freely.

Summary of the fourth day

Day 5: Marrakech

Marrakech is a city recognized by Unesco. Specifically, its historic medina, which is a World Heritage Site, and its Jemaa el-Fna Square, which is an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. Therefore, there is a lot to see and visit on this day, so after breakfast at the riad, you will meet our official local guide to start a tailor-made tour. The places that can be part of this itinerary are very varied. For example, the exteriors of the Koutoubia Mosque, one of the most famous and beautiful mosques in Morocco. The Ben Youssef Madrasa, which fascinates visitors with its decoration in tiles, stucco, and cedar wood. Or the Bahia Palace, a good example of the refinement and wealth of the ruling class of Marrakech. Or the Saadian Tombs, one of the most representative funerary monuments of the country.

The afternoon will be free, making it a good time to continue exploring the city and add new visits or experiences to the program. In the evening, which will be the last of this tour of the Imperial Cities of Morocco, you will rest again in the riad of the medina.

Summary of the fifth day

Best 6 days in Morocco: Reviews

I had never traveled to Morocco before, and this tour ensured that we made the most of our time there. From start to finish, our 6-day excursion, which carried three women from Casablanca to Marrakech, was incredibly professionally arranged. We had the freedom to do and see what we wanted, and the hotels and cuisine were also excellent. There was plenty of time to snap pictures, and the surroundings are lovely. Additionally, we had a fantastic driver named Youssef who answered all of our questions and provided us with information on the nation. We already miss you, Youssef! It was the best road trip I've ever had, and I'd suggest it to anyone. IT WAS AMAZING!


Vacations In Morocco

First of all, we appreciated Vacations in Morocco's patience during our email correspondence, and after several exchanges, we confirmed the trip. It was a great start when Youssef met us at the train station on the day we arrived in Casablanca and drove us to our hotel. We felt cared for and warm when traveling outside because Youssef was so kind and attentive throughout the procedure. We were able to openly discuss our needs for food, lodging, and transportation with him. He was kind enough to take us to buy our tickets for the rest of the trip after we were dropped off in Marrakech, which was great.
