Morocco Questions

Jump to last reply

Researching for a 9 or 10 days trip to Morroco and have a few beginners question.

Definitely want to visit Marrakesh and Fes. Thinking of using them as a base with day trips to Volubilis, Meknas, Chefchaouen, Essaouira and Aït-Ben-Haddou.

1) If there is a choice, is it better to start at Marrakesh and end in Fes or vice versa,
2) Can Volubilis and Meknas be combined together as a day trip from Fes?
3) Can Chefchaouen be a day trip from Fes? (7 hours drive round trip)
4) Can Aït-Ben-Haddou be a day trip from Marrakesh? (7 hours drive round trip)
5) Is Essaouira still worth a visit if my home town is on the coast? Being on the beach is not something I seek on vacation as I have that at home. One attraction will be the Game of Thrones locations. Can this be a day trip from Marrakesh? (6 hours drive round trip)

Essaouira, Ksar of Aït-Ben-Haddou, Chefchaouen all seems like long day trips so perhaps not the best plan. I'm trying not to have different hotels everyday but maybe that's unavoidable? I also don't know the best way to move around (drive? train?). I figure for day trips, I'd hire a driver/guide from the hotel. I know the best way Marrakesh <=> Fes is via a day long train.

Thanks in advance.
