This enchanting city, set against a backdrop of the lush Zalagh mountain range, is acknowledged to be the most important in Morocco where old and new thrive side by side. Numerous civilisations have settled in Fes, leaving a legacy of palaces, mosques and museums filled with precious treasures. Begin your full-day city tour at the ancient medina of Fes, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, home to the architecturally rich Andalucian Quarter.

Traverse some of the 9,000 streets of this maze-like district, passing the city’s oldest mosques and religious schools. This includes the 1,200 year-old Al Kairouyine which claims to be the oldest university in the world as well as the grandiose El Bouanania Medersa, famed for its glittering emerald green tile roof. The spiritual capital is alive with traditional crafts and famous for its tanneries with their brightly coloured dyes and pigments, providing a fascinating insight into the sights and smells of a craft that has remained practically unchanged for centuries.
