We are a family of 4 that will be travelling to Morocco in December. As we fly in and out of Marrakesh, we are travelling in a bit of a loop. Our itinerary is as follows:
Day 1 - Arrive Marrakesh late afternoon
Dec 2 - Marrakesh
Day 3 - Marrakesh
Day 5 - Dades Gorge to Merzouga via Tondra Gorge (overnight in desert)
Day 6 - Merzouga to Fez
Day 7 - Fez
Day 8 - Fez
Day 9 - ?
Day 10 – Hotel booked for evening in Marrakesh
Day 11 – Marrakesh
Day 12 – Depart Marrakesh – Mid afternoon
We are wondering what we should do after we leave Fez. I expect that we will travel by train and originally we had hoped to fit Oualidia into our trip but I think we are short on time. Would you agree? What about going as far as the train goes (I believe it’s El Jadida). Is this town worth visiting? Or should we visit Rabat instead? Other suggestions? We really wanted to see as much of Morocco's diversity as possible in the short time we are there but we don’t want to spend all of our time travelling. Thanks for any help you can provide.
