Marrakech for 6 nights?

My wife and I will be visiting Marrakech in October for 6 nights. I am trying to decide if we should stay in a riad in marrakech for 6 nights and do one or two day trips to something like the waterfall, or should we stay in marrakech for 4 or 5 nights and take a 1 or 2 night trip to something further like Ouarzazate ? We are not interested in going to Essaouira or the desert.

Hi,

Six nights in Marrakech is a nice length of time and you can certainly break it up with a couple of day trips if you like and still only skim the surface of this city.

I think i've been convinced to do 4 night in Marrakech and a 2 night tour to the desert

Hi,

If you are having 4 nights in Marrakech is it the two day one night desert trip you are thinking of? If so, don't do it. Too much time spent on the road for a very brief visit. See other posts on this subject.;

for example.

I don't think it is worth going as far as the desert in 3 days/2 nights, it is possible but it won't be pleasant.

I would recommend the following Kasbah of Teleout, Ait Ben Haddou, spend 1 night in Ouarzazate, then Dades Gorge, Todra Gorge and spend the second night in this area (Tinghir is nice)., then loop around and come back to Marrakech. It is still quite a lot to do but it is easily possible in 3 days (I have done this trip myself and it was a great experience).

I was in Marrakech for three days, and found it to be more than enough. Everyone has their own style of travel, however.

I agree with the previous poster. I recently spent 6 nights in marrakech and 1 night in essaouira and whilst I love marrakech, i felt i could have done the things I wanted in abt 3 days. Don't get wrong, there is alot to keep u busy in marrakech but it's all abt what u are interested in doing.
