Never have been to Morocco before and we're looking forward to art, craft, food, culture, music, history, natural beauty. (In other words, everything except shopping and lying on the beach.) We have fifteen days late Oct. to November--arriving and departing Casablanca. We're thinking (in no order as yet) about 3 days in Fes, 3 in Marrakech, a guided desert tour with one night sleeping in the desert. I would appreciate your opinion about what towns, if any, to add, or whether to stay longer in Fes and Marrakech. What about Meknes and Volubis, Chefchaouen, Essaouira? Should we visit the desert from Fes or Marrakech? In what order should we travel without backtracking a lot. (We'll take public transportation for most travel; a guide and car when we need to.)
I very much appreciate your ideas about this. Thanks.
