What to Expect
Volubilis is the first stop on this excursion, a fantastic example of Roman colonization dating from the 3rd century BC. It is just one of many UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Morocco. Moulay Idriss will be your next stop, a picturesque hilltop town considered one of the holiest places in Morocco. It is named after a descendant of the Prophet Mohamed.
Finish your excursion in Meknes, another UNESCO World Heritage Site in Morocco. Moulay Ismail, the second Alaouite ruler, ruled here when Meknes was the capital of Morocco. Meknes flourished under his rule, and your visit to this former imperial city will highlight the grandeur of his reign. Featured are such sights as the Bab Mansour, Heri es-Souani (former royal granaries), the Bassin de l’Aguedal, Habs Qara (underground prison) and the former sultan’s mausoleum.
