Fes, Morocco's oldest imperial city, offers a unique insight to the country's history. Far from the tourist-filled streets of Marrakech, wandering through Fes' labyrinthine medina is like stepping into the past, where donkeys are the primary mode of transport. Travel out of the city and you'll be immersed in the traditional Morocco, discovering untouched towns and ancient ruins.
Morocco's northern cities are packed with history and religious significance, as well as breathtaking architecture dating back hundreds, if not thousands, of years. From the winding streets of former capital Fes to the vibrant blue buildings of picturesque Chefchaouen, northern Morocco has charm and tradition in abundance. A truly diverse region, you’ll find Andalucian architecture in Chefchaouen, whitewashed walls in the holy town of Moulay Idriss, and Roman ruins dating back to the 3rd century BC in the ancient city of Volubilis.
