Some practical information before your Morocco Itinerary

For this Morocco itinerary, we advise you to rent the car using  , it is possible to rent it in one city and return it in another without the prices being exorbitant and limiting hidden costs.

Planning to visit Morocco? The ideal months are between April and June or late August to October. During these times, it’s not too hot, there’s little rain, and the ocean feels just right for a swim.

Morocco’s food scene goes way beyond the famous couscous and tagines. You’ve got to try Briouates – these are little triangle snacks filled with tasty meats, fish, or veggies, or sweet stuff like almonds spiced up with orange blossom or cinnamon. Then there’s Harira, a comforting soup packed with chickpeas, lentils, tomatoes, and a bunch of spices – truly delicious! And when in Marrakech, don’t pass up on Tanjia. It’s a special meat dish slow-cooked in a pot, seasoned with lemon and spices, and it’s mouthwatering.
