The Fez Volubilis and Meknes day Trip This time travel journey to Meknes and the Ruins of Volubilis will start early in the morning on an already appointed time. We will meet our driver in the lobby of your accommodation. The drive to Meknes and Volubilis is fascinating.
Upon our arrival to Volubilis, we will meet our local guide. He will show a great devotion in explaining most of the historical fact that surround these ruins. The UNESCO classifies it as a world heritage. These ruins date back to the 5th century BC where some of the original mosaics are very well preserved. This site persists through time to prove the glorious past of the Roman Empire in Morocco. This site is full of mesmerising stories from the time of the Romans. Our volubilis local guide will passionately narrate them to us. Our visit includes Moulay Idriss Mausoleum of the very first Sultan in Morocco as well as the Maghreb. The outstanding Andalucian architecture is fascinating in this village. Its natural and architecture design speak wordless stories about the glorious past of this region.
Our Fez to Volubilis and Meknes day Trip includes Meknes, or the younger sibling of Fez. This city is the first capital of the current dynasty under the reign of Moulay Ismail. It is famous for its 40 km long city walls that preserve the most beautiful gate of Morocco: Bab Al Mansour. A Christian Portuguese captive built it as a price for his freedom after arresting him on the costs of the kingdom fighting against the corsairs of the Sultan. Its walls are more 1.5 meters thick to sustain cannon attacks of rebellious tribes as well as foreign powers seeking to seize control over Morocco. After lunch, we will visit the Royal Stables, which housed up to 12,000 horses of Sultan Moulay Ismail, the granaries and Lahdim Square. In the old medina of Meknes our road trip ends. Our professional driver will drive us back to Fez to our accommodation.
