Medina of Fez: Founded in 790 by Moulay Idriss, Fez is the religious, intellectual and artistic metropolis of Morocco. Cradle of a thousand-year-old monarchy, it was also for a long time the political capital of the empire of the “Cherifs” and has preserved its historical background and its role as an Islamic city intact for years. Fez is a network of winding alleys that can hardly be unravelled. Movement, noise, shouting, smell of tanned leather, delicate aroma of oriental perfumes, barbecues, sweet pastry: all this is the imperial city.
Following pick-up, we’ll see the colourful es-Sebbaghine with its Street of the Dyer, the Copperware workers at es-Seffarine, the renowned Tanneries on the bank of the Oued Fes and the Carpenters district. Later, we’ll see the outdoors of the university Quaraouiyne, the outdoors of the Mausoleum Moulay Idriss, and Medersa Attarine. Then, we’ll have lunch before going back to the hotels.
