On this Day Trip to Meknes and Volubilis, you will explore the regal kasbah and the majestic mausoleum that houses the tomb of the 17th-century sultan Moulay Ismail, learn about his lofty dreams for Meknes, and visit the remains of Volubilis, the best-preserved ancient Roman city in Morocco. The holy town of Moulay-Idriss, which boasts Roman baths, an aqueduct, a large tomb, and some lovely overlooks over the hilltop town, is a worthwhile side trip on the route.
Starting at 8:00 am, your full-day journey from Fes to Meknes and Volubilis Day Trip will depart from your place of lodging in Fes. You will journey to the imperial capital of Meknes after boarding your private vehicle with an English-speaking driver in the west. Wide expanses of vineyards that produce high-quality wine, much of which is sold to France, may be seen as you travel through the plain. The town of Meknes, including the huge souks, the fascinating historical buildings, and the opportunity to eat lunch, can be explored for up to three hours.
After lunch, we go 30 kilometers north to Moulay Idriss, a village perched on a hill. As the location of the tomb of Moulay Idriss, a well-known Moroccan saint in the late 8th century and a great-grandson of the prophet Mohammed, the town is one of the nation's most significant spiritual sites and a destination for pilgrims.
Visit the Volubilis World Heritage Site; there are many locations from which to capture the town in a picture. The largest and best-preserved Roman remains in Morocco are found at Volubilis, which is also home to stunning mosaic floors and has stunning vistas of the Rif mountains.
Your day trip to Volubilis, Moulay Driss Zerhoun, and Meknes will now come to a conclusion. Remain in Fes and get dropped off at your lodging.
