Are things Closed on Dec 25th?

Hi -we will be in Morocco the week of christmas, are things(shops tourist spots) closed on the day of chirstmas? Also I read in the forums that there is an over night train from Marrakech to fez, however on the oncf site the lastest train i see reachs fez at 2am. Is it safe to reach fez at 2am, I will be travelling with my husband. Also is one full day and most of the second day(till 6pm) enough to see marrakech?

We will be in casablanca for a few hours on a friday, since I was told most things are closed on friday..any recommandations what I can do( we get to casablanca in the morning around 9am)

shops are not closed on Christmas day. taxis will be waiting outside train station whatever time you arrive. As longa syou book your accommodation everything shoudl be ok

A day isn't enough to see most of Marrakech but you need to target must- see

I wouldn't suggest arriving to Fes at 2 a.m., not so much because of safety, as checking-in to a hotel. You should at least make sure that wherever you are staying will allow a check-in at that time.

Christmas is not a holiday celebrated in Morocco, for obvious reasons.

why taxi it , safer and cheeper to take the train.

very east train trip.

but to answer your question i would not pay much more then 200 euro for that trip ( plus the tolls for the toll road)

And only go the toll road, a much safer way and faster.
