Tangier to Marrakech - things to do

Hi

My friend and I are seeing to Morocco at the beginning of July. We start in Tangier and will end up in Marrakech. We have 14 days in total abs really want a good experience of the culture and sites. I'd really appreciate some advice on things to do please :)

Thanks!

Having some seaside would be wonderful! I wasn't sure what would be feasible as two weeks isn't a great deal of time. Would it be better to book these journeys in advance?

Normally on TA we are advising travellers that they are taking on too much. However in your case Chloe W you spend on one day in Tangier (really not too much to do and see there in my opinion) and head to Fes for a couple of nights. Travel by train. Then reaching Marrakech (again by train, around 7 hours and 10 minutes) you can take your time deciding on a day (or two) on the Atlantic coast as John W suggests. Essaouira is the nearest coastal town (about three hours by coach, Supratours, from Marrakech.) Timetables for trains and Supratours can be found at

See RAMADAN under Top Questions (top right of your screen) for what to expect during the Holy Month. Tourist cafes remain open in general in Marrakech but the ones aimed primarily at locals will be closed.

Absolutely. Fes and Marrakech can be very hot (although not humid) in July and I think that an escape to the coast would make for a welcome change. You even have the time to consider a day trip to the High Atlas mountains. Have a look at Ouirgane or Imlil for example.

Thanks everyone for all the input! :) I definitely have a more solid plan to go in, it's amazing what you can learn from just asking for a bit of advice.

I think we will go from tangier to fez to the coast and then to Marrakech and the atlas mountains..something like that!

Fez looks like a definite although I am wary of other peoples experiences, it seems that as we are two girls we may get a lot of hassle!

If you go from Tangier to Fes then you could consider a stop off in Chefchaouen - it is a relaxed town in the Rif Mountains enroute from Tangier to Fes
