Description

DAY 1: TANGIER – CHEFCHAOUEN

We will pick you up from the airport or the port of Tangier and leave for Chefchaouen, a city founded as a mysterious secret place from which to attack the Portuguese installed on the north coast.

Accommodation in the hotel.

DAY 2: CHEFCHAOUEN

After breakfast we have a free day in Chefchaouen, a sacred city hanging on the mountain, located inside a natural biosphere reserve.

DAY 3: CHEFCHAOUEN – FEZ

Free afternoon to relax and have a first contact with the city that will transport you to the past.

DAY 4: FES (GUIDED TOUR OF FEZ)

After breakfast, we go for a guided tour with our local guide in the most important places of the visit of Fez. When you enter the streets of the medina you feel that time is moving backwards: the structure of the guild is still present in the building site, its narrow streets do not allow any other transport than donkeys and a constant swarm of people move the labyrinthine alleys through which neighborhoods like the Andalusian ones and magnificent mosques and Koranic schools were surprised. Fes has always been associated with study and religiosity, and remains the spiritual capital of Morocco. Hotel accommodation.
