What to do in Morocco?

  1. The Djemaa el Fna square in Marrakech

A mythical place, the Djemaa el Fna square, is the soul of Marrakech. Snake charmers and traders mingle there in a unique atmosphere. Whether for dinner or to visit the souk, you cannot miss this place.

  1. Chefchaouene

Founded in the 15th century, the city of Chefchaouen is a haven of peace where winding streets are painted blue. Its craft market adds an additional cachet to the city. A quiet place to rest, far from the big cities.

  1. The Moroccan hammam

No, stay in Morocco without taking advantage of this so pleasant steam bath. A hammam is a place of well-being but also allows you to socialize with the locals.

  1. A getaway in the Sahara

Spending a few nights under the stars in the Sahara is a magical experience. The crossing will remain unforgettable between ergs, dunes, and meeting with the Bedouins.

  1. The Atlas Mountains

The Atlas is a mountain range that stretches from Morocco to Tunisia. The Atlas offers beautiful hiking trails, which can be difficult, and the assistance of a Marrakech Tour Guide is strongly recommended.

When to go to Morocco?
The ideal times to travel to Morocco are the months of April and May and the months of September and October, allowing you to avoid the high summer heat.
How to get around in Morocco?
Public transport- Morocco is well equipped in terms of public transport. A local curiosity not to be missed, the small and large taxis are cheaper and more practical than the bus if you are travelling with more than three people. Trams are present only in Casablanca and Rabat. City buses also exist, but it is better to favour other means of transport.
Train- The train is the preferred means of transport if you want to go from Rabat to Marrakech.
Bus- The bus is the most affordable way to travel within the country. The CTM company is the most popular in the country. The buses have air conditioning, which is not a luxury in Morocco.
Car- You will find a good choice of car rental agencies on-site for prices ranging from 100 to 850 MAD (10-80 EUR) per day. It is important to respect the Highway Code, in particular the speed limit of 60 km/h in town, 100 km/h on the roads and 120 km/h on the motorway.
Airplane- Morocco offers internal flights operated by Royal Air Maroc. A Rabat - Marrakech trip will cost you around 2000 MAD (200 EUR).
