The process of itinerary planning, sticking to the budget and navigating unfamiliar destinations is overwhelming. As a consequence, romance ends up taking a back seat in the planning process as most couples feel they would be unable to meet this need while at the same time sticking to their budget. However, the task of looking for an ideal romantic gate away is not as difficult as it may seem. One of the places you can consider is the city of Fez in Morocco.
To most travelers, the city of Fez is the ‘Athens’ of Africa and the ‘gem’ of Morocco. The city is a UNESCO world heritage site that consists of traditional houses, palaces, uniquely designed buildings known as Fondouks, and fountains that date back to the 13th century. Fez is an ancient walled city that has captivated artist, writers, and explorers for decades. It is located on the north-eastern side of Morocco and the eastern side of the Mediterranean. Fez is also among the top 12 most attractive tourist attractions in Morocco.
The city of Fez is the ideal place for a romantic getaway. You get to enjoy the starry Arabian night, captivating architectural designs and have a romantic dinner on a rooftop. Most of the buildings in Morocco have flat roofs. Also, most of the hotels have beautiful rooftops where they will serve you dinner. On the other hand, you and your partner can have fun preparing the meal yourselves and enjoy your dinner under the starry Saharan night. You can watch the sunset together in this ancient city. Also, you two can take cooking classes together and learn how to make Moroccan meals. The city’s market is easily accessible and with a few gestures or Arabic phrases, you will be able to buy the ingredients you need.
There are many adventures to experience in Fez. You can explore key places in the city, such as the labyrinth-like streets in the old Medina or the markets in the old part of the city. You can go shopping for antiques in Mellah (the Jewish Quarter), or go hiking on Mount Zalagh. You can appreciate some stunning views in the city, such as the Merenid tombs, Boujaloud gardens, and the Batha museum. If you want to wind down and relax a bit, then you can visit a spa and soak in the intense, ancient ambiance of the city.
