8 nights in Morocco in Aug

Jump to last reply

We are a group of three and has varying degrees of travel experience in Morocco, 1 never been there, 1 been there once and me twice. Casablanca will be where we fly in and out of the country. We'd like to cover Tangier, Marrakesh and Essaouira and are concerned whether Marrakesh will be unbearably hot in mid August. The split of time along the cities that I've worked out at this point is as follows and I'd love to hear your advice before I dig in further -

Day 1 - arriving Casablanca airport at 9am. To Tangier direct and use it as a hub for 3 nights for side trips to Tetouan and Chefchaouen.

Day 4 - take a train from Tangier to Marrakesh for 2nights

Day 6 - to Essaouira for a night

Day 7 - back to Marrakesh for a night

Day 8 - take a train from Marrakesh to Casablanca

Day 8 - take off from Casablanca in the afternoon

Will be most grateful for any comments on the practicality of the above itinerary.
