Morocco in October 2015

Jump to last reply

My wife and I, from California are planning a trip to Morocco for the first time in the beginning of October. We will be in Lisbon,Portugal and are planning to fly into Morocco for 9 nights and fly back to California form there. The following are some of the questions I have for which I would appreciate your response:
1. We are thinking of spending 4 nights in Marrakesh, 3 nights in Fez, and 2 nights in Rabat. Are these cities good choices or should we drop/add a city?
2. The side trips we are planning are- From Marrakesh to Essaouira and Zagora for camel ride to the desert. From Fez to Volubilis and Meknes. From Rabat to Casablanca. Are these good choices?
3. Which city should we fly into Morocco and which city should we leave to California.
4. How do we travel between the cities and do the side trips? By train, air, buses, taxies, or rental car? We are thinking of renting a car for the ease of moving around. Is it safe to drive in Morocco? I understand the driving is Left-hand drive like the US.
5. What kind of accommodation should we look for- Riads, hotels, or apartments thru Air B&B? Are there any local sites for renting apartments or houses? Should we plan to stay in Medina/ city center area or Ville Nouvelle area?
6. Any tips or percussions for us as a traveler for the first time in Morocco?
I would sure appreciate your comments on this subject.
Thanks,
Only Travel
