Travelers who opt for a private transfer to complete the journey from Fes to Casablanca will have the option of stopping at several notable cities along the way.
First up is Meknes, one of Morocco's four imperial cities the former home of the royal family. Three sets of ornate and imposing buildings, the magnificent Bab el Mansour gates, and the sultan's tomb in the heart of the old city are all impressive vestiges of Morocco's storied past. If you would like to shop for local goods and souvenirs and have traditional Moroccan food, stop at the Place el Hedim.
Further along the journey is Rabat, Morocco's capital city. In Rabat, you can opt to view the Mausoleum of Mohammad V and the famous Hassan Tower—the minaret of a half-finished mosque—or you can head slightly outside of the city to the medieval fortress of Chellah, which also includes statues and graves that date as far back as the Roman Empire.
