Itinerary for the Casablanca tour 5 days:
Day 1: Casablanca – Casablanca
Welcome to our beloved country: Morocco!
On the first day of our Casablanca tour for 5 days, you will explore the country’s economic and commercial capital, Casablanca. You will spend the entire morning discovering the beauty of the Hassan II mosque, which is the third-largest mosque in the world, and the largest in all of Africa. Hassan II mosque is a true masterpiece of Moroccan-Muslim architecture that can hold up to 80 000 worshipers in its huge courtyard and about 25 000 more in its main hall inside. Thankfully, the Hassan II mosque is one of the few mosques that allow entrance to non-Muslims on guided tours which means you will get the chance to closely explore the marvelous artisanal details of the mosque, including the mosaic, wood, and marble craftsmanship. We will end our tour in Casablanca with a visit to Rick’s Café, which was made famous thanks to the classic movie “Casablanca”.
This is not all that the city has to offer! You can have a nice walk around the Parc de la Ligue Arabe, pay a visit to the Casablanca Cathedral, or explore the old Medina part of the city which dates back to before the French colonization. In contrast to that, you can walk around the markets of the Hobous, or the new medina built by the French during the 30s. Finally, you’ll get to walk around Corniche Boulevard, also known as “The Miami of Morocco”.
Day 2: Casablanca – Rabat – MEKNES -fez
On the second day of our Casablanca tour 5 days, we will start driving towards the city of Fez. Along the way, we will stop at the current capital of the kingdom, the city of Rabat, which is a very active and modern city that holds at the same time a lot of important history in its crevices.
You will get to walk through the ancient Chellah Necropolis, which is a site rich in Roman ruins and Islamic remains as well. Another important historical monument that we must visit in Rabat is the Kasbah of Oudaya, through which you will feel like you’ve traveled back in time. After that, we will take a break from the business of the city, by paying a visit to the beautiful Andalusian Gardens. Finally, we will visit the famous Hassan tower Minaret and the Mohammed V mausoleum before ending our tour of Rabat. Finally, we will arrive at Fez where we will have dinner and spend the night.
Day 3: fez-tours
We will have breakfast first, then we will start our exploration of Fez. Fez was perhaps the beating heart of Arab-Muslim culture back in the day, which was made true because of the decisions of king Idriss II. Being home to the oldest ancient Medina in Morocco and the oldest university in the world, Fez has preserved all of its culture and monuments through time, such as The Mosque of the Andalusians, the leather tanneries, and the pottery cooperatives. You will get to try a traditional Moroccan lunch, after which you will visit more monuments, like the Nejjarine and the Madrassas.
Day 4: fez /Meknes / Moulay Ismail -Casablanca
We will start driving early toward Casablanca, and on our way there we will make the first stop at the spiritual town of Moulay Idriss. This town is very sacred and dear to Moroccans, for it is home to the Mausoleum of Moulay Idriss, ruler and founder of Fez. We will continue our Casablanca tour 5 days by driving until we reach Volubilis. Volubilis is a city rich in ruins left behind by the great Roman Empire that dates as far back as the year 1 AD. This site is considered a UNESCO world heritage site for its well-preserved ruins that you will explore today, including remains of public buildings, private houses, temples, and intricate works of mosaic.
Our last stop on our way to Casablanca will be one of the most important imperial cities of the kingdom: the city of Meknes. Meknes is where we will have lunch, after which we will explore what this beautiful city has to offer. The two most interesting areas of Meknes are the imperial city and the old medina. During our tour of the imperial city part of Meknes, we will visit the iconic Bab El Mansour gate, the Mausoleum of Moulay Ismail, the Royal Stables, and more. As for the Old Medina, we will explore its narrow streets and small souk markets, the Madera El Bouinania (1358), and last but not least, the Dar Jamai Museum (1882). You will have lunch in Meknes, after which we will head straight to Casablanca where we will spend the night at a hotel.
