Experience Morocco’s quiet oasis, the city of Fez along with Volubilis, a 2300 year-old Roman city. This peaceful Muslim country is inspiring and beautiful.
Having sat in the lap of luxury for most of our time spent in Marrakesh, we decided to get out on our own and rent a car. Our destination: the quiet oasis of Fez, a six and half hour drive from Marrakech, and well worth a few days.
Fez is actually three cities meshed into one: Fes El Bali, the old 8th-century medina, al-Aliya, the “new” medina dating from the 9th century and the modern city that has grown around them.
