Meknes or Rabat

Just wondering which one of these would be the best city to visit. What are the pro's and con's of each visit also?

I'll be arriving in Marrakech in approximately one month...and I have Irish skin, I'm guessing I'll have to wear a lot of sunscreen in Morocco :).

I have a day to spend in one of these...so which would you recommend. Thanks in advance for any replies.

If you are already planning to visit Marrakech and Fes, then I'd say that Rabat is a the best option (over Meknes) as it will give a different feel of Morocco than the other places. It is also a very clam town so may be a nice change from the other cities.

A day trip to Meknes would involve a long journey there and back, you would be better to stay a night so Rabat is probably the easier option. You can get the train from Marrakech and yes, you will need the high factor cream in June!
