visiting meknes while in Fez

I will be spending 4 days in Fez in October. I am wondering if it would be best to visit Menkes from there for the day or plan to leave Fez and spend an overnight in Meknes. i would then get the train for Casablanca.

We would also visit another famous site near there whose name I can not remember.

Meknes can easily be visited as a day trip. The site you are referring to is probably the Roman ruins of Volubilis.

do you recommend visiting Volubills and meknes on same day?

And can we take a train from Fez to these sites or do you recommend a guide and driver

I did a tour with a driver round Meknes, Volubilis and Ifrane as a day trip several years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. Not rushed at all. No need for a guide, a grand taxi driver will take you round the sights.
