On the way, we will make a stop to explore Volibulus, the Roman Empire which is considered to be the most ancient preserved city in Morocco. It was settled in 3rd century by the Mauretanian kings and considered as an annex by the Roman emperor Claudius in AD45.

Meknes reigned Morocco around 17th century with its famous Moulay Ismail for the visit of el Hedim Square, Bab el Mansour Gate, el Souani basin, and the mystical underground Qara prison. Afterwards, we continue on this trip to Rabat, the capital of Morocco. Apart from being considered the political & administrative capital of Morocco, it has a lot to offer, its palm-lined boulevards and its Andalusian influenced architecture. The most interesting and historical part to see in the Rabat is Oudaya Kasbah, which is located on a cliff overlooking the Atlantic coast. The next exciting monument is Hassan Tower, which was left unaccomplished after the death of Almohads dynasty ruler Yacoub el Mansour in 1199.
