Drive to the “Blue City” of Chefchaouen
Today, you will say goodbye to Fes and travel north to Chefchaouen. On the way, visit Volubilis, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that is home to Morocco’s best-preserved Roman ruins. You can take a nice break from the road and walk around the massive complex, exploring large merchant homes with visible heating systems, temples, and many well-preserved mosaics. There are usually guides available here to hire on your own if you would like. You will then make your way to Chefchaouen. This little city is a visual delight in blue; walls, doors, windows, stairways, alleyways, and archways–everything is a combination of pastel, sky-blue and deeper, more powerful hues. Chefchaouen is located in the heart of the Rif Mountains and is popular for travelers who want to get the feeling of old Morocco.
