Fez & Northern Morocco

Fez and northern Morocco is an area that is perfect for a second-time holiday to Morocco. Fez offers a far more authentic taste of Morocco, with the Medina and souqs offer a glimpse of the timeless charm that many people seek when visiting Morocco. This area is fertile and has been for centuries the breadbasket of Morocco. Evidence of this is seen in the Roman city of Volubilis. Olive groves and even vineyards surround it. Meknes was once an imperial capital and had a Medina even less touristy than that of Fez.

Nearby Moulay Idriss is a white-washed town perched on a hill overlooking Volubilis. The alpine mountains to the south of Fez make for interesting walking opportunities. Ifrane has a distinctly French feel and it is worth spending a few days exploring the local area. From Cape Spartel in the west to the border with Algeria, Morocco’s Mediterranean coast is often overlooked in favour of Marrakech and Fez’s visits. South of Gibraltar, you find Tangiers. It is the traditional port that links Europe and Africa and now a trendy, forward-thinking city. Along the coast, you find small seaside towns. Inland, you find the interesting town of Chefchaouen. Perfect for a few days walking.
