Marrakech, Morocco

Greeting from Wisconsin. We will be arriving in Casablance via cruise ship sometime in Nov 2012. Would LOVE to visit Marrakech, Morocco. Question: is this a doable thing? Is it worthwhile?

There appears to be an 8 hour travel to/from Casablanca to Marrakech....will there be time to see all the interesting sights?

Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

ps suggestions for 'what to do' would be appreciated as well...

Typically 3.5 hours. Take a look at the train times at www.oncf.ma

Arriving Marrakech

You'll need to get a taxi from the port to Casa Voyagers train station. Can't book tickets in advance, but first class normally no problem with seats.

Its actually very doable if you have a few days, and not just a few hours. I'm not sure if you meant you have just 8 hours in Morocco? But if so, you'll probably have to skip it. But if you have more time do it, its so worth it! Follow Tim's train info and you;ll be there quite easily. And Even if you just wandered Jemaa el fna, and stroll the medina - it would be worth it! :) Have fun!

Will 10 days be sufficient to see enough of Marrakech, it's museums, badi palace, bahia palace, jardin majorelle & museum of islamic art, saardian tombs, souks, touriet kasbah (featured in Star Wars) as well as a day trip to essaouira, menara gardens and the Atlas mountains? I've planned a trip mid February 2013. I'd be grateful for any advice. Regards Bob V
