Day 1. Arrival. Casablanca.
We arrive at the Casablanca airport. And immediately we hit the road across the country. In the evening we will reach the famous Chefchaouen.
Day 2. Chefchaouen.
Blue city.
Let's start our penetration into the atmosphere of this amazing country from the most photographed city in Morocco. Chefchaouen has long settled on the Instagram of all travel bloggers, its bright blue walls, stairs, and nooks, unexpected views of the surroundings - all this creates a special atmosphere. Walking and taking pictures, admiring - these are our plans for the whole day in this wonderful city!
Day 3. Fez
Traveling to ancient Fez
After breakfast, we leave the blue city and go to the most ancient and amazing Fez, the former imperial capital, the current cultural capital of the country, and my personal discovery in Morocco. It is here that we touch the living Middle Ages. The famous walled medina of Fez, Fes el-Bali, is considered the most confusing in the world - it has been preserved since the city was founded in the 8th century! We will definitely visit the Bu-Inaniya and Al-Attarin madrasahs, built in the 14th century and known for their exquisite design - they are richly decorated with cedar carvings and tiles. In the medina, you can only move on foot, on a donkey, or on a bicycle; there are many craft workshops, spice markets, and baths. We will see a huge mosque and Al-Karaouin University of the IX century, and we will definitely visit the most interesting place in Fez - the tanneries and dyes of Shuar of the 11th century. Here, animal skins are still processed by hand and dyed in open-air stone baths. We will take a look at the Nedzharin Museum of Art and Craftsmanship of Wood Carving, we will visit the Jewish Quarter of the 15th century. And, of course, it is in Fez that we will buy all possible leather goods - it is here the best manufacture in the world!
Day 4. Fez.
The cultural capital of Morocco
We will certainly leave one day in Fez to walk on our own through the narrow confusing streets of the medina. They say that you need to get lost in the medina of Fez! Let me tell you a secret - it's not scary at all! Fez has amazing people, a special atmosphere, and incredible discoveries at every turn. And, of course, it is in Fez, where many shops with gastronomic specialties are located inside the old medina, that we will prepare ourselves an exquisite dinner together, and eat it somewhere on the terrace with a beautiful view of the rooftops of the old city at sunset. After all, it's not for nothing that my husband, who is also our personal chef, is traveling with us! ;)
Day 5. Meknes. Volubilis.
Meknes - Little Paris
After breakfast, we leave for Meknes. Meknes is another imperial city located 60 km from Fez. It was imperial only under one ruler in the 18th century, who launched a rapid construction in the city. Therefore, today we have the opportunity to visit the impressive stables of Meknes, the royal palace, and magnificent gardens. After the establishment of the protectorate, the French called Meknes little Paris, so smart it seemed to them. Today's Meknes is the 6th largest city in Morocco. Another important object for us is located near Meknes. These are the ruins of Volubilis, a Roman city, the most southwestern city of the Roman Empire. Today it is the largest archaeological park in Morocco. Here you can see the Arc de Triomphe, the Capitol, and the House of Bacchus (named after the plot of the famous mosaic found in one of its rooms).
Day 6. Road to the desert.
Ifrane and the road to the dunes
In the morning we leave towards the desert. On the way, we will visit the Ifrane National Park not far from Fez. On its territory there is one of the largest cedar forests in the world, this reserve is one of the few habitats of Berber macaques (magots). We will move along an amazing road and by the evening we will reach Merzouga - a town that stands on the border of that part of the desert that everyone dreams of seeing in their photos - magnificent dunes. Accommodation at the riad. Relaxation.
Day 7. Merzouga.
A night under the stars
After breakfast, we will have a lazy day overlooking the dunes. We will go to the oasis, we will rest, and in the afternoon on camels, we will go to the wild part of the desert to the Berber camp, have dinner there and sleep under the stars.
Day 8. Ouarzazate.
Moroccan Hollywood
I'll wake up at dawn in the desert to take the best photos and the most beautiful photo session in my life with the dunes in the background! We will return to the riad and after breakfast, we will drive through the rocky desert towards the High Atlas. On this day we will visit the rose oil factory and see the famous ksar Ait Ben Haddou. This fortified village, adjacent to one side of the mountain, is one of the most famous and typical adobe villages (ksars) in southern Morocco, in 1987 it was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. And having reached the city of Ouarzazate, we will visit Moroccan Hollywood! These places served as scenery for the films "Lawrence of Arabia", "Gladiator", "The Mummy", "Alexander", "Prince of Persia", "Pearl of the Nile". We will spend the night at the riad in Ouarzazate.
Day 9. Marrakesh.
Red city
In the morning we will continue our journey. We are moving to Marrakech. To do this, we will need to cross the High Atlas and overcome the Tizen-Tishka pass at an altitude of 2260 meters. From there, a unique panoramic view of the valleys, desert landscapes, and incredible mountain streamers open up! In the afternoon we will arrive in Marrakesh. We will see the Koutoubia Mosque - the pride of Marrakesh, its true symbol. The 70-meter minaret of the mosque is visible from almost anywhere in the city and is a convenient landmark for lost tourists (and getting lost in the medina is very easy!). We will visit the Saadian tombs, where the founder of the famous Arab dynasty rests, and where the remains of sixty-six of his descendants are buried. We will see the magnificent palaces of Marrakech - Bahia and the ruins of the once luxurious El Badi. We will definitely go to the local bazaar, look at the products of local artisans. Of course, let's go for a walk along the famous Djemaa-El-Fna square. It is a meeting place for traders, storytellers, snake charmers. A place where colors, smells of spices, cries of vendors, and sounds of musical instruments are mixed.
Day 10. Marrakesh.
Romance of Marrakech
On this day, we will certainly go to the unique Majorelle Garden, an amazing place where one of the most iconic representatives of haute couture of the 20th century, Yves Saint Laurent, was inspired. The garden was invented by French artist Jean Majorelle, who brought plants from all over the world to his oasis in the middle of the Moroccan desert and built himself a home right in the center of his lush garden. And after the death of Majorelle, the garden and his villa was bought by Yves-Saint Laurent - it was here that he created his most striking collections. Now a museum of the great couturier is open near the garden, where we will certainly go too.
Day 11. Marrakesh.
Marrakech atmospheric
We have one more day to enjoy the magic of this city. We will wander through the tangled medina, bargain in the market stalls, taste sweets sprinkled with rose water. And let's drop in for tea at the famous historic hotel La Mamunia - Winston Churchill's favorite hotel, with incredible interiors and beautiful installations.
Day 12. Es Sueira.
Magic city on the ocean
After breakfast, we leave for Es Sueira. Our way there will pass through the area where argan trees and cedar forests grow. We will certainly see this special Moroccan miracle - goats grazing right in the trees! ))) And, of course, we will visit the argan oil factory - the most valuable in the world! We arrive at Es Sueira. Called "Mogador" by the Portuguese, this city is surrounded by a fortress wall and is located on the very shore of the Atlantic Ocean. The stark white Medina of Essaouira is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Essaouira attracts artists from all over the world who stay here to breathe in the fabulous air of the old commercial port and the largest pirate center. We will explore the local Medina, the fish market, the Jewish quarter "Mellah" and the port. Essueira can boast that the best cabinetmakers and sculptors of Morocco work here. Here we buy argan oil and numerous beauties, Essaouira is the best city for shopping for traditional artisan products.
Day 13.Essaouira.
Romance and seafood
We will stay for another day in romantic Es Sueira to eat the freshest oysters straight from the ocean, stroll through the fish port, similar to the pirate Tortuga, eat freshly cooked fish (you remember, our personal chef is with us!) And meet one of the most beautiful in the world of sunsets.
Day 14. Casablanca.
Early in the morning, we move to Casablanca, we will have time to see the grandiose Hassan II mosque, standing right on the ocean. It is the main attraction of Casablanca and the second largest mosque in the Islamic world. The project of the French architect Michel Pinceau and the technology of the late 20th century made it possible to create a miracle of engineering - a mosque with a retractable roof, and the world's tallest minaret - more than 200 m. The mosque is not only a religious, but also a cultural center: the building houses a madrasah, a library, and National Museum. We are going to the airport. We fly home.
