Arrival in Casablanca
Morocco’s beaches, Berber villages, and medinas are intensely exotic. Then there’s the desert, with its camels and sand dunes. It’s a country with such contrasts that it has been infatuating travelers since long before modern travel became accessible.
Start your tour in Casablanca. Then head to Marrakech, a city that’s full of enchanting medinas and landmarks like the Koutoubia Mosque. You’ll also visit the rocky Agafay Desert and learn about Moroccan culture at local homes.
Avoid taxi lines and slow transportation by booking a private transfer to your hotel from Casablanca Mohammed V Airport. Your driver will greet you at the arrival lobby with a name sign and drive you directly to your accommodation. Afterward, enjoy your free time to relax and rest. You can also explore the main attractions in Morocco on your own.
A short drive from Fez is Meknes, an impressive imperial city built by the Alawite dynasty. Here you’ll find massive buildings of heavy splendor, stables said to house 12,000 horses, and celebrated gardens irrigated by water from a 10-acre (4-hectare) artificial lake.
You can explore the city on your own or take a guided tour of its mosques, palaces, and mausoleums with a local guide. A visit to Meknes is also often paired with a trip to nearby Volubilis, the Roman ruins that once marked the western edge of the empire.
You can visit the Dadès Valley and see the rock formations known as monkey toes, and explore Todgha Gorges where you’ll be able to admire the rocky canyons. You’ll also be able to enjoy Berber hospitality beyond borders.
While Marrakech may be the beating heart of Morocco’s tourism, the Blue City of Chefchaouen is also one of its most beautiful towns. With its compact medina painted in bright blue, the town looks like a fairy tale.
The narrow streets are less crowded than the ones in Marrakech or Fes, which makes it easier to find your way around. There are a lot of cute and rustic restaurants to choose from here as well.
A visit to the Grand Spanish Mosque is a must. Built by Mouly Ali Ben Rached, it is one of the most impressive buildings in the town. It’s best to admire it at sunset when the town is especially pretty. During this time, you will also see some locals practicing their religion.
Morocco is a stunning country that offers many different experiences. Its vibrant culture, delicious food, and diverse landscape will leave you wanting more.
Getting around in Morocco is easy, but there are some things you should keep in mind. For example, driving in the mountains is a bit more difficult, and most rental cars are manual. Additionally, the roads can be narrow and winding, so it’s important to be patient.
Visit Fez, an ancient city that’s home to one of the oldest universities in the world. Walk through the city’s high-walled streets and explore its historic tanneries. You’ll also see the amazing Funduk Nejjarine. Then, continue to Chefchaouen, where you’ll discover the mountainous terrain of the town. You’ll also enjoy a cooking class with a local host.
The 7 Days in Morocco itinerary takes you to all four imperial cities of Morocco including the Medina in Marrakech. The city is a hub for traditional culture and offers the opportunity to stroll through its winding alleyways full of handmade goods.
You will also visit the Todra and Dades Gorges, roses valley, and some amazing Berber villages. You will also get the chance to take a camel trekking excursion over the Erg Chebbi desert. You can stay at a tented desert camp where you will enjoy the sunset and spend a night in the desert.
From Chefchaouen to Merzouga you can go by bus. A ticket costs around 75 dirhams and it will take about 6 hours to reach the city. There are several buses daily, so you can choose the one that suits you best.
