Upon arrival in Casablanca, Morocco’s economic capital, you will be met and transferred by shuttle bus to your Casablanca hotel. Depending on arrival time, you may have the opportunity to visit the city, including an optional visit to the Hassan II, one of the world’s biggest mosques. We hardly suggest this visit to understand what this tour will show you.

After lunch and some time to enjoy this beautiful coastal city, we continue to Fes, the spiritual capital of Morocco, full of mosques and tipical market.
Day 3 : Fes
After breakfast, take a guided tour of the Fes Medina, one of the world’s largest and best preserved medieval fortification, it is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Explore the narrow streets lined with stalls offering fresh fruit, spices, intricately woven Berber carpets and much more. The King’s Palace, the tanneries, and potteries are just some of places we will visit, before lunch in a traditional restaurant at the heart of the Medina.
