My husband and I are planning on traveling to Morocco in May and I wanted to get some opinions on our itinerary since I currently know very little about getting around in Morocco, how much there is to see in each city, etc. (I'm just starting my research so I'll get there!)
Day 1 Arrive in Merrekech
Day 2 Full day in Merrekech
Day 3 Full day in Merrekech
Day 4 Drive in morning from Merrekech to Casablanca, spend day in Casablanca
Day 5 Full day in Casablanca
Day 6 Drive in morning from Casablanca to Rabat, spend day in Rabat
Day 7 Full day in Rabat
Day 8 Drive in morning from Rabat to Chefchaouen, spend day in Chefchaouen
Day 9 Full day in Chefchaouen
Day 10 Drive to Tangier, Fly out of Tangier Airport
It would be great to hear a variety of opinions. We are relaxed travelers who love eating good food in slightly off the beaten path cities - so I'm a little worried we are packing too much in and that we are going to a lot of very large cities. Here are my major questions:
1. Do you all think this is too many places?
2. Does you think it seems like a very "touristy"/large city trip?
3. Would you guys recommend busing from place to place, taking taxis, or renting a car?
4. If there is a city or location that you loved, please let me know! We have always been fascinated by Morocco from afar and this will be our first trip there so we are open to suggestions.
