Wednesday, January 3 - Enchanting Fez
After breakfast, we will mostly be on foot for visits to explore Fez, the medieval capital of Morocco, and a great city of high Islamic civilization. Fez has the best-preserved old city in the Arab world, the sprawling, labyrinthine medina of Fes el-Bali, which is incidentally also the world's largest car-free urban zone. Transports of goods is provided by donkeys, carriages, and motorbikes.
- Bou Inania madersa: a breathtaking 14th-century religious college. The best example of Islamic architecture a non-Muslim can see in Fez, with wooden walls elaborately carved with geometric patterns and Arabic calligraphy, and a beautiful minaret. In the courtyard there is a portico with a still-functioning mosque, separated by the rest of the courtyard by a small moat.
- The Merenid Tombs next to the Merenid Hotel, provide excellent panoramic views over the medina and the wider city, as well as the olive tree lined hills surrounding the city, and sanctuary from the bustle of the rest of the city. Beware of the odd opportunistic tout.

The square bustles with acrobats, story-tellers, water sellers, dancers and musicians. By night food stalls open in the square turning it into a huge busy open-air restaurant.

Discover exotic Marrakech. Beginning at the 12th-century Koutoubia Mosque. With visits to El Bahia Palace and the Saadi dynasty tombs. Venture to the lush Palm Grove and Menera Gardens. Cross the finish line at the Djemaa el Fna Square.

- The trip to Morocco was amazing.  We traveled to remote towns, large cities and the beautiful desert.  The historical sites were beautiful and our local tour guide was very knowledgeable.  The hand crafts were beautifully done and impressive to watch them make.  The trip was a wonderful experience and I am so happy I went.  I thought the entire trip was awesome and only have great feedback. Brigitte, November 2012
