Morocco - Fez, Meknes and the Middle Atlas

Humble villages and mountain trails offer a charming counterpoint to imperial cities and ancient ruins in this area of Morocco. The narrow streets of the Fez medina are this region’s major drawcard. Meknès offers a more pocket-sized experience, with some epic relics from Moulay Ismail’s reign.

    - dive into the warren of Fez’s medina looking for souqs and souvenirs, and enjoy the sound of the sublime at the Festival of World Sacred Music
   
    - time travel through Volubilis, Morocco’s finest Roman ruins, strewn with spectacular floor mosaics
   
    - explore Meknès’ outsized imperial architecture that characterised mighty Moulay Ismail’s reign

Coverage includes: Fez, Sefrou, Bhalil, Meknès, Volubilis (Oualili), Moulay Idriss, Middle Atlas, Ifrane, Azrou, Midelt & Around and Taza.
