Day 1: Departure from Marrakech to To Meknes & Volubilis Ruins 

Volubilis: the best Roman ruins in Morocco, declared World Heritage by UNESCO. They are located 35 kilometers north of the city of Meknes, in the Zerhun mountain, populated with olive groves and vegetable gardens. the city is called Oulili (oleanders in Berber). It was integrated in the reign of Mauritania and became one of the royal capitals of Juba II. In the year 40, Rome annexed Mauritania after the assassination of King Tolomea by Caligula and Volubilis was now part of the province of Tingitane.

Meknes:  has been declared World Heritage by Unesco For its artistic and historical interest:

The Medina of Meknes is located west of the city, in an upper region separated from the new city by the Boufekrane river valley, both united by Moulay Ismail and Dar Smen avenues. She is surrounded.

This is the usual entrance to the medina, where is the famous Bab el Mansour gate, built by Moulay Ismail in the eighteenth century, beautifully decorated with mosaics. This square is the center of the old town with cafes, restaurants, markets, shows and shops. In the afternoon, locals and tourists gather there.

Medersa de Bou Inaniya: sites of interest in the medina and near the Great Mosque. It is considered the most important historical monument thanks to its beauty and antiquity.
