Worried about itinerary

We've booked the following itinerary

Sunday - arrive Casablanca airport 11am

afternoon train to Marrakech

5 nights / 4 full days in Marrakech - including cooking class, shopping, possible day trip

return on Friday to Casablanca

2 full days (Saturday & Sunday) in Casablanca

leave early Monday morning

Now - I am reading more and more comments about how unpleasant Casablanca is. Should I amend the itinerary? And if so - what do you suggest?

It really depends on how easy it is to amend your itinerary and if you like city life?

Casablanca is urban with the main attractions being the Hassan II Mosque and the Morocco Mall.

If you are trying to "experience" Morocco, then I would probably take a side trip to Essaouira OR something like that. Getting to Fes is a bit far...although it is well worth a visit.

I do think 2 days are too much. I ll just spare enough time to visit the mosque if I were you... Like you Casa was the entry point of my Morocco trip and I stayed there for one night, which I thought was more than enough

1 day in Casablanca is enough - make sure you there for a full morning though as the must see sight is the Hassan II Mosque and you can only enter before 2pm on most days

Do an overnight in Essaouira with the extra day

Or even the small town of El Jadida which is nearer.
