Introduction

Morocco has always attracted travelers, especially those looking for something exotic and unusual yet easily accessible from Europe. This relatively small country has such a variety of landscapes, sights and activities and is so close to Europe that you can be in Morocco in just a week.

Despite the relatively small size of Morocco, there are so many amazing places to visit that unfortunately you can’t see everything in one week. To solve this problem, I have outlined three different itineraries to get the most out of a week in Morocco.

Jemaa El Fna market, Marrakech.

Each itinerary is designed for different types of travelers, as some parts of the country are more accessible by car, but there are also many routes that can be seen by public transportation or combined with short tours. There is certainly something for everyone here, so read on to find the perfect week-long Morocco itinerary that suits you and what you want to see.

Day 1 and 2

Marrakech

How to get there:

Marrakech’s Menara Airport is connected to many international cities and you can often get a good deal. It takes about 15 minutes by cab to get from the airport to the medina. If you have a small budget, you can take the L11 or L12 bus from the main road for almost nothing.

He will drop you off just outside the medina, on the side of the Jemaa El Fna market square. Cabs are not allowed in the medina. Keep in mind that depending on where you stop, you may have to walk some distance with your luggage, but a cab may be able to take you closer.

The beautiful gardens of the Qutubiyah Mosque…

Marrakech

This city is probably the most famous tourist destination in Morocco, and for good reason. You arrive in the heart of the Moroccan tourist industry, and things can get pretty hectic during your visit!

The first thing you want to do is make sure you book a great riad, because Marrakech has some of the best. Here you can freshen up and have a mint tea before you leave. You should also buy your bus tickets for the rest of the trip in advance so you have the time you want. For more information, see the next section.

Explore the stores of Marrakech.

For your first day here, I recommend relaxing, walking around the medina and visiting the Jemaah El Fna market in the evening when it is in full swing. Meet the enchanting snakes, the magic lamp vendors and just the incredible sensory overload of this unique place. If you need a break from the hustle and bustle, dine at one of the rooftop restaurants with a stunning view of the huge market.

Go back to the riad and get ready for tomorrow’s sightseeing. I’m not going to tell you how to spend this second day, because there are so many sights in Marrakech that it really depends on your personal preferences. A day trip can be a great way to visit several sights at once. With only a week in Morocco, you’ll want to pack as much baggage as possible into your days!

A few points are worth noting:

  • Jemaa El Fna Market (in case you missed it yesterday)
  • Qutubiya Mosque
  • Majorelle Garden
  • El Badi Palace
  • Bahia Palace

Cabs are a cheap and easy way to get from one place to another, but don’t forget to haggle! Popular places like the Jardin Majorelle can sometimes have long queues, so count on more time than expected.

Day Three

Ait-Ben-Haddou

How to get there:

You can rent a car for the whole trip to Marrakech, this can be done at the airport when landing, but you cannot enter the medina with a car, so you will have a big parking problem. The easiest way is to take a car on the day of your departure, but book early because it may take some time to get it back. It’s best not to take the smallest car (as we did!) because the mountain road is marked out in places and can be quite steep. The trip takes about 5 hours with breaks.

If you don’t want to drive through the mountains from Marrakech, you can also take a CTM bus from Marrakech to Ouarzazate and rent a car there. From here it is about a 30-minute drive to Ait Ben Haddou. The main car rental companies will allow you to rent a car for a certain distance. It should therefore be possible to return the car at the end of the trip in Marrakech or Essaouira, but this must be confirmed in advance.

A majestic sunrise in Ait-Ben Haddou.

Ait-Ben-Haddou

In my humble opinion, it is the jewel in the crown of Morocco’s many beautiful sites. Visually striking and remarkably well preserved, the clay fortress stands next to a picturesque valley of palm trees and evokes exotic images of ancient desert caravans.

Spending at least one night here is a must, and seeing the sunrise and sunset at this majestic spot is a memory you will cherish forever. Many week-long itineraries in Morocco include only a day trip to the country, which is a serious mistake. I suggest you leave Marrakech as soon as possible, as it will take some time to cross the mountains and you will want to spend as much time here as possible.

Be sure to book your accommodation here as soon as possible, as few places offer a fantastic view of the fortress from your balcony or even from your bedroom window! Visit Chez Brahim or Dar Mouna La Source for the best views of the city.

The view from the window of our guest house, Chez Brahim.

In the coolest hours of the evening or the following morning, climb to the top of the fort for a breathtaking view of the desert and the valley. Visit the Panoramic Tea Room next to the last staircase for a cup of peppermint tea with a view.

Personally, I find it hard to get up early in the morning, but getting up here at sunrise and walking to the river is really special. On the way back, a delicious breakfast awaits you to relax and re-energize before leaving for Taroudant.

Day Four

Taroudant

How to get there:

These roads are paved and in reasonably good condition. The trip is easy and takes about 4 hours, giving you time to enjoy the sunrise and have a good breakfast before leaving on your own. Google Maps will guide you to the most efficient route.

Taroudant

Taroudant is a much less visited place than some of Morocco’s most famous attractions. This means you can enjoy this unique place with far fewer other tourists and be congratulated for your adventurous spirit!

Fewer tourists also means that the locals are cooler and more welcoming than in some big cities. If you have an eye for Moroccan souvenirs, you should wait until you are here to buy them. The 7 days in Morocco go by quickly, so make sure you see something you like!

The ramparts of Taroudant with the High Atlas in the background.

It will be a much more relaxing and enjoyable experience than the difficult auctions and the sometimes rude nature of the traders in Marrakech. If you are really interested, you can even participate in the leather production process in the tannery, so you can feel an extra connection with the leather products you buy!

Taroudant has a surprisingly well-preserved wall that allows for beautiful photos. There is even a section where you can walk over the top of the wall. Another interesting place is the Palazzo Claudio Bravo, you can pay it a short visit or stay overnight. The palace has beautiful gardens and views of the surrounding mountains and farmland.

However, the best thing one can do in Taroudant is to simply walk the streets, observe daily life and find those special spots to take beautiful pictures of the walls and mountains in the distance. A week in Morocco will seem much longer if you walk around and soak up the atmosphere of the village.

Day Five

Tagha salt

How to get there:

Just hop on the main road and continue to the coast. The trip is quite short and easy and takes about two hours, so there is no need to be in a hurry to leave. Google maps may try to direct you on the secondary roads because it thinks you’ll be faster, but that’s not the case. Stay on the N10 until you reach the coast, then it becomes the N1 as you head north.

Tagha salt

Originally a Berber fishing village, this frosty town has become a popular destination for surfers and hikers. You’ll find surf schools, yoga studios and craft stores all over town.

You probably wouldn’t expect that a beach vacation in Morocco can be organized in just 7 days, but that’s just how it is! That’s the beauty of this country, there is so much variety in such a small space. It’s a great place to get rid of the desert dust.

Tagha salt

If you’ve never surfed before, you can try a few lessons on the main beach, and if you’re more advanced, many schools offer day trips to some of the best breaks in the area. Relax afterwards at one of the rooftop cafes overlooking the ocean.

At the foot of the Atlas Mountains, you can take a day trip to the Paradise Valley, a beautiful lush area with canyons, rivers and pools. Hiking trips can also be organized, if you don’t feel like it, ask your guest house.

If you want to check the “camel” box on your bucket list of things to do before you die, this might be the place to do it. Camel rides on the beach at sunset can be organized in town or booked through the link below. Imagine learning to surf and riding a camel on the same day! Your friends will be amazed that you only spent a week in Morocco, but that you had such a unique experience.

Check out the hosting options at Taghazout◄.

Day Six

Essaouira

How to get there:

Just return to the N1 and drive north for 2.5 hours. At some point, as you approach Essaouira, turn left, but Google Maps will cover this turn and you will take the correct route.

Essaouira

The beautiful port city of Essaouira has a rich history that attests to its use as a trading post for thousands of years. It has long been the main port of Morocco, with easy access to Marrakech for transporting goods from the caravan trade routes in the desert.

Now something of an art center, the Galerie la Casbah is an art gallery located in a beautiful riad and is well worth a visit. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, don’t forget to eat fresh seafood at one of the local specialty restaurants.

Port of Essaouira

The eventful history of the port is evident in the many fortifications that surround it, giving it a unique appearance and allowing for great photos. Moreover, you can hunt for the famous goats that climb the trees and take a cheeky photo to amaze your friends. They climb exclusively on the argan trees, which are numerous here.

If you missed the camel ride on Tagazoot beach, you have another chance. Ask your guesthouse for a recommendation for a good local business. If you have skills and experience, you can also rent kitesurfing equipment at different stores, as they say it is a great place for this sport.

Day Seven

Return to Marrakech and departure

(Otherwise, leaving Essaouira)

Your journey unfortunately ends today. You will reach the Marrakech Menara Airport in about 2.5 hours, but you should allow enough time to return the car.

Essaouira has an international airport with several European destinations. So you can get there depending on your destination. Remember that car rental companies often charge a one-way fee.

A week in Morocco – North

Visit some of Morocco’s most emblematic sites, from the ancient tanneries of Fez to the rich blue streets of Chefchaouen. Explore some lesser-known gems, such as the ancient capital of Meknes and the modern capital of Rabat.

Overview

Bus/train or car

Day 1 – Arrival in Rabat and exploration of the day

Day 2 – Travel to the ancient capital of Meknes and visit the Roman ruins of Volubilis.

Day 3 – Drive to Fez and afternoon exploration of the medina.

Day 4 – Spend the day exploring more Fez

Day 5 – Drive to the beautiful blue city of Chefchaouen

Day 6 – A full day to find the best spots in and around Chef’s Row.

Day 7 – Depending on where you find the best flights, you can go to Fez, Tangier or back to Rabat.

Chef, the Blue Pearl of Morocco…

Day One

Rabat

How to get there:

The Rabat-Salais International Airport is connected to many cities. You can also fly to Tangier and take the one and a half hour train to Rabat if the plane is much cheaper.

Rabat

The capital of Morocco is often overlooked by travelers who prefer Marrakech or Fez, but Rabat really has a lot to offer. Founded in the 12th century and later used by the French as a colonial capital, this city is a mixture of architecture and culture. Rabat also has a slower pace of life than these other cities and you can enjoy a more relaxed style.

Rabat’s medina is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a walk through its winding streets will take you past the old market to Berber kasbahs and Andalusian gardens. The area is full of beautiful white and blue painted houses with breathtaking sea views. The gardens are beautiful and provide excellent photo opportunities.

The beautiful coastal city of Rabat

The medieval fortified necropolis of Hella, located in the city of Rabat, is not to be missed. The ancient city of Salé, located on the other side of the river, also has a number of interesting sights and offers a beautiful view of Rabat from its port.

Check that you still have time, because with a week in Morocco you really want to get started, but you also don’t want to overdo it on the first day!

There really is a lot to see in Rabat, so don’t rush to Meknes on the second day, but rather spend the morning exploring a few other parts of the city. You will have 2 nights in Fez so you can arrive a little later the next day, a full day is enough to see the city.

Day Two

Meknes

How to get there:

Car: If you are traveling by car, you can pick it up in Rabat and be in Meknes in two hours. There are good roads everywhere and it is relatively easy to find the Rabat exit. Try to find a guest house that offers parking in Meknes, as this will get rid of a lot of hassle and handbags.

Train: Trains run regularly from Rabat to Meknes. The train takes just over two hours and runs every hour. There is normally no need to make advance reservations, but during peak times you may want to consider making your first day’s reservation in Rabat.

Meknes

Meknes is one of the four royal cities of Morocco and probably the least visited, the others being Marrakech, Fez and Rabat. The city was founded in the 11th century and for a time was the capital of Morocco under Sultan Moulay Ismail.

During his reign from Meknes, he fortified the city with massive walls and elaborate gates, and created a huge palace complex. Many of these structures are still intact today, and you can spend a whole day walking between the gates, admiring the medina and some of the best-preserved parts of the wall.

The impressive Bab Mansour gate in Meknes.

Meknès is slower than the other three royal cities, making it an ideal place to visit between Rabat and Fez. Another thing you should not miss during your stay in Meknès is a visit to the Roman ruins of Volubilis. Although they are not the largest or most pristine ruins in the world, their location in the quiet countryside is attractive. The ruins are located 40 minutes north of the city on the N13.

If you prefer to visit a winery named after ruins (a rarity in this largely arid country), you’ll find Volubilia-Domain de la Zouina on the other side of town, about 25 minutes away. If you come here, don’t forget to bring a bottle or two.

As mentioned in the previous section, you have a full day to explore Fez, so there is no need to rush the next day. If you feel you have a lot to see in and around Meknes, take the whole morning, it is only a short trip to Fez. Many week-long itineraries in Morocco include this excursion as a day trip from Fez and it is possible unless you want to change accommodations for extra time. Personally, I like to sleep in different places and I feel it extends the week.

List of accommodations in Meknès

Third and fourth days

Fez

How to get there:

Car: the journey from Meknes to Fez takes about an hour. Google Maps can direct you to one of the many routes. Remember that you are going to Fes El Bali, the old medina, not the modern city center. The most direct route here is the N6.

You cannot enter the medina by car, but there is a parking lot outside. It is best to ask your guesthouse for the nearest parking lot. If they cannot help you, search on Google Maps for a parking lot near where you are staying.

Amazing arts and crafts in Fez

Bus/Train: The train is your best option here. The journey takes 45 minutes and the Fez train station is within walking distance of the Medina. There are regular departures at all hours of the day and you should book your tickets when you arrive in Meknès, as you will be at the station anyway.

CTM also offers a bus between the two cities, but it’s longer, less comfortable and harder to book, so probably stick to the train unless you’re a bus enthusiast!

The old Chuar tannery in Fez.

Fez

Fes is a place capable of exceeding all expectations and pleasantly surprising you. Although Marrakech is sometimes overshadowed by the medina of Fes, it is in fact a huge pedestrian area and the absence of mopeds that almost drive you to death makes a big difference in the pleasure of strolling the streets!

The winding streets and alleys of Fez are full of quaint stores, and there are always surprises to be discovered in the small alleys. There are many beautiful mosques and madrassas, including the oldest university in the world still in operation.

The biggest attraction, of course, are the tanneries and leather stores, highly photographed. The Chouara tannery dates back to the 11th century and is still in operation today. The view is classic from the roofs of the surrounding stores, and this is really the only way to get a good view of the tannery.

The beautiful streets of Fes El Bali

Stores 10 and 64 probably offer the best vantage points for photography. The climb to the roof is free, but the store visitors are very attentive and friendly, so we bought a few things as a gesture. You’ll probably save money elsewhere on larger purchases because there are margins in these stores, but the prices aren’t too bad if something really catches your eye. Don’t forget to haggle!

Your first task upon arrival in Fez should be to book a bus ticket for the boss. The number of buses is limited, which can be difficult during busy times. There is a CTM office in the main city and unfortunately you have to take a cab to buy tickets, but it is not too expensive. Better yet, if you can arrange for your guesthouse to buy them for you in advance, some places offer this service for a fee.

Fifth and sixth days

Chef

How to get there:

Car: about 4 hours of fairly solid driving with the integrated break. If you follow a Google map, the roads are good, even if they are a bit winding. Like Fez, the old town of Chefchaouen is not accessible by car, so know in advance where you will park your car. Some guesthouses near the old town have parking, which will be convenient.

Bus: CTM has several departures a day from Fez. This route is very busy, so it is best to go to the ticket office when you arrive in Fez and buy your tickets in advance. During your stay, you should also be able to arrange your ticket to Chefchaouen in advance, but you can also book it later if you wish.

The ticket office is in the big city, but it is only a short distance by cab, if you say to the driver “CTM bus station”, he will know. Ask your hostel about the actual price you will have to pay for the cab and arrange it in advance.

Restaurant of Chef Schouen

Chef

The Blue Pearl of Morocco has gained international acclaim in recent years with the increasing sharing of photos on social media. This beautiful city, nestled in the Rif Mountains, has become a tourist mecca, but not just because of its blue. This will be the highlight of your week in Morocco, I promise you!

The old town of Chefchaouen has a relaxed and carefree atmosphere that is truly separate from the faster-paced cities that travelers often visit. It is a place where you can stroll at your own pace, store for unique local products without the hustle and bustle, and simply relax amidst the shades of blue that contrast with the lush green of the surrounding mountains.

There are not many special places to visit in the town, rather the town itself is the attraction. However, there is a kasbah and an old mosque in the town square, which offer a great view from one of the many restaurants in the area.

One of the best chef’s activities is a walk to the Spanish Mosque, which offers stunning views of the city nestled between the mountains. If you enjoy hiking, you can also visit Akchur Falls and the nearby Talassemtan National Park.

After a day looking for the best photo opportunities and maybe a few handmade souvenirs, head to one of the rooftop restaurants in town. You can watch the sun set in the mountains and have some of the most delicious food I’ve ever eaten in Morocco.

Breathtaking view of the Koch from the Spanish mosque.

Check out the accommodation options in Shefhaun.

Day Seven

Return to the city of your choice and hit the road.

By car: Tangier is the easiest port of departure, it is about 2 hours away. Depending on where you find the cheapest flights, you can be in Fez in about 4 hours or also back to Rabat in about 4 hours.

Bus: You can take the Chef’s buses to different places. The closest city is Tangier, but remember that some buses stop in Tetouan, so the trip may take 3 hours instead of 2. Ask for confirmation when you buy your tickets. You can also take the CTM buses to Fez or Rabat if you want to leave these places.

A week in Morocco – East

Experience the immense spectacle of the Sahara, the inimitable Ait-Ben Haddou as you cross the High Atlas Mountains and the exotic markets of Fez and Marrakech.

Overview

(Tour and guided tour)

Day 1 and 2 – Arrival in Fez, discovery of the beautiful riad and exploration.

Day 3 – Organization of a trip through the Sahara and the huge dunes of Merzouga.

Day 4 – Exploring oasis cities and vast desert canyons

Day 5 – Visit to the beautiful Kasbah of Ait Ben Haddou and end of the trip in Marrakech.

Day 6 and 7 – Discover the many attractions of Marrakech

Day 1 and 2

Fez

How to get there:

The Fez-Sais International Airport is connected to many cities around the world and offers frequent flights. It is also possible to take the train from other major cities in Morocco if you have traveled elsewhere.

Fez

Fez, one of Morocco’s royal cities with a rich history, is an excellent place to start your week in Morocco. There are some great riads here, so try to find the right place from the beginning of your trip. The place you are looking for is in Fes El Bali, or at least near the old medina where most of the sites you want to visit are located.

The narrow cobblestone streets of the Medina are surrounded by all kinds of artisan stores and local restaurants. The entire medina is a huge pedestrian area, making it such a relaxing and pleasant place to walk compared to the busy streets of Marrakech. The old tanneries of Fez are still in operation, producing leather that is sewn into many types of items. It’s a great place to do business, but make sure you negotiate well!

Entrance into the Medina of Fez through a majestic gate

The Chouara tannery is one of the oldest in the world and dates back to the 11th century – a sight not to be missed. To see the emblematic scene, you need to get on the roof of one of the nearby stores. The stores are a must visit rooftop and most are very welcoming and friendly.

They take you for a little walk and talk to you, then leave you alone; you have nothing to buy, but we ended up buying something small as a thank you. In branches 10 and 64 you will find some of the best views.

One of the tanneries located on the flanks of the tannery ….

Besides this famous tannery, there are many other attractions. Fez was once the capital of the Merinid sultanate and has beautiful Moorish architecture, with walls, mosques, madrassas and a large palace (of which we unfortunately only see the door). Fes El Bali is also home to the world’s oldest continuously operating university.

If you arrive early enough on the first day and have seen most of the city, you can explore some more of the area the next day on a day excursion. You can also immerse yourself a bit more in Moroccan culture by taking a cooking class or a guided tour. Below are some good options; you may find some suggestions for a day trip with a chef, but this is probably best avoided because there is a lot of driving to do in one day. You have a long drive ahead of you tomorrow, so it is best to rest when you visit Fez.

View accommodation options on Fes◄

Days 3 to 5

The Sahara Desert

The vast eastern desert region of Morocco can be associated with long and boring journeys and is not the easiest place to organize buses and accommodation. Since you only have a week to travel through the region, a tour is really the best option to visit many places without stressing while driving or looking for accommodation.

This amazing 3-day desert tour takes you from Fez to Marrakech, with amazing experiences in between.

The tour begins with a hike through the Middle Atlas Mountains and the beautiful desert landscapes around Merzouga. You will have an absolutely magical experience as you watch the desert sunset on the back of a camel and spend the night in a nomadic camp. If you have never heard of this place, type in “Erg Chebbi” on Google images and enjoy it with your own eyes.

Camping in the Sahara desert

The next day you will drive down part of Route 1000 Kasb and visit an oasis town in the desert and one of the most impressive canyons I have ever seen. These areas of the oasis are so beautiful and charming, with rivers of date palms flowing through the valleys, which is a unique attraction. You will spend the night in the desert town, where you can enjoy the beautiful view over a traditional Moroccan dinner.

The spectacular Todra Gorge…

On the third day, visit the epic mud fortress of Ait Ben Haddou and explore this ancient Kasbah with a guide. I really enjoyed this place and it’s a shame I can’t stay there, but with the time constraints of a week, sacrifices must be made. Nevertheless, you can explore and climb the fortress and cross the emblematic bridges built with large stones over the river.

Tea with a View, Ait-Ben Haddou.

On this day you will cross the Tizin Tichka pass, which overlooks the High Atlas Mountains, and enjoy beautiful views and imposing mountain peaks. The trip ends today in Marrakech and I recommend you book a nice riad for your last nights, as Marrakech has some of the best!

Overview of accommodation in Marrakech

Days 6 and 7

Marrakech

The cultural heart of Morocco and undoubtedly its most famous destination, tourists flock to Marrakech year after year in search of a truly unique and exotic experience far from everyday life. Marrakech offers this ideal, with the vibrant streets of the vast and ancient medina bustling with life and activity, taking you into the heart of Moroccan culture.

An evening stroll around the huge 11th-century Jemaa El Fnaa market is like a trip back in time with snake charmers, magic lamp sellers and all the other vendors vying for your attention. Take my advice and reserve a table at one of the rooftop restaurants nearby, where you’ll have a fantastic view of the entire market. Beware of pickpockets and scammers in the market, as they are unfortunately common.

Explore the incredible Qutubiya Mosque in Marrakech.

There are so many sights in and around Marrakech that it is difficult to fit them all in. One sight not to be missed is the 12th century Koutoubia Mosque, located opposite the market square and surrounded by gardens – a great place to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the medina. The Jardin Majorelle is another beautiful and peaceful garden where you can relax. It is a truly amazing collection of cacti and other plants, mixed with beautiful blue buildings. It is very crowded, so make sure you get there early.

Marrakech also has beautiful palaces with impressive Moorish architecture and gardens. Visit the Palacio da Bahia or the El Badi Palace and try to choose which you like best! Once you have seen all the sights of this city, you will understand why people have to come back. A long day is worth it, especially when you return to your quiet riad to relax and rest. For ideas and inspiration, check out the properties below:

At the end of your trip, you can depart through Marrakech’s Menara airport with many connections and often cheap prices to many international destinations. For more information and ideas for your vacation in Morocco, click here. We wish you a good trip!
