Volubilis - Moulay Idriss

Volubilis, Moulay Idriss and Meknes from Fez

After two busy but inspiring days in Fez, we decided that it was time to venture into the vast prairies that surround the metropolis. In this post we tell you how to tour the ruins of Volubilis, the sacred city of Moulay Idriss and the imperial city of Meknes, all in one day from Fez […]

Chefchaouen: deep blue and city of stars

Perched high in the green mountains in the Rif region of northeastern Morocco, Chefchaouen is one of the most demonstrative examples of Morocco’s geographical beauty. Blue painted to repel mosquitoes and other pests, Chefchaouen, Chauen or Xauen as it is also known, is a traditional city and at the same time is very quiet and […]

Three fantastic days in Fez Morocco

Fez is one of those most spectacular museum cities in the world. It is an exotic, mysterious and mesmerizing labyrinth. Although sometimes it can also be very overwhelming. Passing through one of the doors is as if time has deformed, although the millions of parabolic antennas installed in almost every roof remind us that we […]

Snow in Morocco

Jemaa el Fna Square

The definitive guide of Marrakesh Morocco in three days

At the foot of the High Atlas Mountains, stands Marrakech. A chaotic, immense, intoxicating city. At times the invasion of colors, smells, labyrinths and sounds is overwhelming. Marrakech is the first thing one imagines when thinking about Morocco. We left Rabat very early in the morning. Through the window of the train the wild flowers […]

The perfect 24 hours in Asilah Morocco

The white city of Asilah in Morocco seems some island lost in Greece, but the mosques, calls to prayers and Arabic style doors are a reminder that we finally arrive in Morocco. Asilah (sometimes also Arcila or Assilah), is the first city south of Tangier (and the first stop of the national train network that […]
