Meknes and Volubilis Day Trip Itinerary

Embark on your Meknes and Volubilis day excursion right after breakfast, with our team picking you up from your accommodation in Fes at 10 am. (However, we are flexible and can accommodate other timings upon your request.) Our journey commences with a short drive to the revered Moulay Idriss, nestled on Mount Zerhon’s edge, offering breathtaking vistas of the Moroccan countryside, including Volubilis. Moulay Idriss holds significance as a pilgrimage site for Muslims, offering an alternative to the Hajj in Mecca. While non-Muslims can explore the village’s charming souks, access to the tomb of Idris I is restricted.

Following this, a brief ride takes us to the Roman ruins of Volubilis, or Ouallili in Berber, renowned for its well-preserved remnants, such as the Triumphal arch, baths, palaces, and intricate mosaics depicting Roman mythology. As one of North Africa‘s paramount Roman sites, Volubilis boasts UNESCO World Heritage Status, making it a highlight of Meknes‘s allure for travelers.

Our journey culminates in the imperial city of Meknes, initially established as a military camp in the 11th century, later transformed into “the Versailles of Morocco” during the 17th century by Sultan Moulay Ismail. Encircled by extensive defensive walls, Meknes features impressive crenulated battlements, grand city gates adorned with Islamic art and pilfered Roman marble from Volubilis, the Mausoleum of Moulay Ismail, the opulent Royal Palace of Dar El Makhzen, and scenic landmarks like the Agdal reservoir and nearby granaries. Meknes exudes old-world charm and tranquility, contrasting with the bustling atmosphere of Fes, offering visitors a glimpse into Morocco‘s rich history and picturesque landscapes.

Concluding the Meknes day trip, we ensures your safe return to your Riad in Fes, wrapping up a day filled with cultural exploration and scenic wonders.
