No stop in Fes is complete without a visit of Al Qarawiyyin, the oldest existing, continually operating and the first degree awarding educational institution in the world. The university is equally well-known for its education and for the stunning architecture
of its main building, pictured here.
Although the political capital of Morocco was transferred to Rabat in 1912, Fes has retained its status as the country’s artisan centre. Workshops hosting master craftsmen in the medina are as busy today as they were hundreds of years ago, and strongly contribute to the city’s industrial economy. The tannery of Fes, colorful and pungent, is a must-see; here, workers labor in small pools filled with specific dyes to treat their wares.

After your visit to the Majorelle Gardens, you can head next door to the Yves Saint- Laurent Museum, which honors the fashion icon’s love of Marrakech and builds upon the collections housed at the Majorelle gardens. The building itself if a work of art and houses a permanent collection of some of YSL’s best known designs along with rotating installations dedicated to themes about which he cared. Taking your time to enjoy every garden and the two museums should take no more than a couple of hours in total, so you’ll be done with your visit by lunch time. Your lunch will be at le Grand Cafe De La Poste on this day (which is not included) and will have the afternoon at leisure.
After lunch and some time at leisure, make sure to be ready to unwind with a luxuriating 90 minute Royal Hammam and Spa Treatment, where you will delve into the complete ritual of Moroccan wellness. Hammam means “spreader of warmth”, and walking into a hammam is like walking through time in a spacious and ornate sanctuary, a quiet retreat in an atmosphere of half-light, silence, seclusion and heat. Silence is an integral part of the cleansing process and helps the body and spirit liberate itself from excess and the superfluous. The hammam traditional ritual involves several steps to cleanse, detoxify, and help in relaxation. You’ll experience one of the world’s most ancient traditions, a black-soap cleanse, followed by a cascading cold-water rinse. This prepares your skin for an invigorating scrub, which leaves you soft and free of accumulated toxins and impurities. After another rinse, a Ghassoul mask of Moroccan volcanic clay is applied to the body, face and hair. The last step of this centuries-old practice of purification is the relaxing massage using pure oils, Morocco’s precious youth elixir! After the Hammam you will have dinner at La Maison Arabe (included)
