Volubilis, Moulay Idriss & Meknes
Day Trip From Fes

Tour Plan
  • From Fes a day trip to Meknes and Volubilis with the personalized guidance of "Fes City Travel." The journey kicks off after a leisurely breakfast when our team collects you from your Fes hotel or riad at 10 am. (Feel free to let us know a more convenient time; we're flexible to suit your schedule!)
    Our first stop is the holy Moulay Idriss, perched on Mount Zerhon, offering breathtaking views of the Moroccan countryside, including the ancient city of Volubilis. A significant pilgrimage site for Muslims, Moulay Idriss holds a special place in Moroccan history. Explore the charming village, featuring vibrant souks, although only Muslims can enter the tomb of Idris I, credited with converting Morocco to Islam.
    Following a short drive, we arrive at the Roman ruins of Volubilis, known as Ouallili in Berber. Wander freely among the well-preserved remnants, including the Triumphal Arch, baths, palaces, and exquisite mosaics depicting classical themes from Roman mythology. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Volubilis adds historical richness to Meknes, making it a must-visit destination.
    Continue your exploration with a visit to the Imperial city of Meknes, often referred to as "the Versailles of Morocco." Founded as a military camp in the 11th century, Meknes boasts lavish designs reminiscent of Parisian and Arabian royal palaces. Witness impressive crenulated battlements, intricately carved city gates adorned with Islamic art, and the Mausoleum of Moulay Ismail, all reflecting the grandeur of this historical city.
    In its prime, Meknes was encircled by 45 km of walls, adorned with twenty city gates, and featured over fifty palaces. Discover the Royal Stables, the Agdal reservoir, and the captivating surroundings of olive groves and vineyards. The local souks offer a delightful shopping experience, rich and varied, often more affordable than those in Fes.
    Following this wonderful Meknes day trip, "Fes City Travel" ensures a comfortable return to your Riad in Fes. Uncover the cultural treasures of Morocco with our expert guides, making each moment a unique and memorable experience.
