The Itinerary for Casablanca to Meknes-Volubilis Tour is:
You will be picked up by your driver at your Hotel in Casablanca or at your cruise ship in Casablanca port and start your journey to Meknès. One of the Imperial cities, Meknes, a city once the capital of Morocco, is now a UNESCO World Heritage site. This city is just packed with history, from the stunning Bab Mansour gate to the Mausoleum of Moulay Ismail, the former sultan of Morocco. And the palace, oh the palace! The Dar El Makhzen palace is just incredible, with intricate tile work, beautiful gardens, and a stunning courtyard that will leave you speechless. See the beautiful gate of Bab el-Mansour at the Place el Hedim, maybe the most beautiful of all the gates of the imperial cities. Visit the mausoleum of Mulay Ismail and his corn attics and stables that are called Heri es-Souani, which once accommodated up to 12,000 horses.
But Meknes isn’t just about the history, it’s also a bustling and vibrant city with plenty of shopping, dining, and nightlife options. The Place El Hedim is a must-visit, with street performers, food vendors, and shops selling everything from spices to souvenirs. And for those looking for a more laid-back experience, there are plenty of cafes and bars where you can relax and enjoy a drink or a meal.
After your lunch break in a typical restaurant in Meknès (not included), drive for approximately forty minutes to Volubilis. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is the largest of its kind in North Africa and is very well preserved. It lies in a strategic position about 33 km north of Meknès and is famous for its mosaics.
Volubilis, an ancient Roman city that was once a thriving hub of commerce and culture. As you wander through the well-preserved ruins, you can’t help but be transported back in time. The mosaics are just incredible, with intricate designs and vivid colors that will take your breath away. I mean, can you believe that some of these mosaics are over 1,500 years old?! And the Arch of Caracalla, the triumphal arch that stands at the entrance of the city, is just breathtaking.
But Volubilis isn’t just about the ruins, oh no! The surrounding countryside is just as stunning, with rolling hills, olive groves, and vineyards as far as the eye can see. And if you’re lucky, you might even get to try some of the delicious local wine made from the grapes grown in the area.
The best time for a visit is in springtime when the wildflowers are in full bloom among the old stones.
The Roman city is over 2000 years old and was destroyed in 1755 by an earthquake. You can explore this fascinating site on your own or with a local guide. There is also a new museum on site.
Afterwards, drive back to Casablanca and be dropped off at your Hotel or cruise ship.
