Transportation

Morocco enjoys an excellent network of roads. There are direct flights to Morocco from all over the world including North America (Montreal, New York and Washington D.C.), Europe and the Middle East.  Get in Marrakech: http://wikitravel.org/en/Marrakech#By_air

By air

Most international flights arrive in Marrakech, and plenty of low cost companies now fly to Marrakech, though some companies arrive in Casablanca and require a plane change for the 45 minute flight to Marrakech. The Marrakech airport is just 10 minutes from town and small taxis are plentiful.

If going by petit taxi, make sure to have the driver use his meter or agree the price beforehand. As you exit the airport terminal, there is a sign which actually gives you an idea of how much the taxi ride should cost.

By train

Trains arrive from Casablanca hourly, and regularly from other destinations such as Rabat. The train station is located in the recently developed ville nouvelle. Frequent local buses leave from just across the street into the medina and modern tourist area. Petit taxi drivers will also be quick to offer their service, but pay no more than Dh 10 - 15 for this short ride.

By bus

Most CTM and private bus lines arrive at the long distance bus station near Bab Doukkala, a 20 minute walk (Dh 15 - 20 by petit taxi) from Jema el-Fna. Supratours and Eurolines buses, however, will arrive at the main train station.

Get around

Once in the medina, everything can be seen on foot, though you'll be doing a lot of walking. For exploring more of the city, buses and petit taxis are plentiful. Almost all buses stop at Jema El Fna and Place Youssef Ben Tachfine and fares range from Dh 2 to Dh 5 depending on the distance. Important municipal bus lines are:

No 1 - Towards Gueliz

No 8 - Stops at the central train station

No 10 - Stops at the long distance bus station

No 11 - Will drop you off at the gardens of Menara

Visa Requirements

Most of the European and North American nationalities do not need a visa to travel to Morocco. Other nationalities have to arrange for their visas through the Moroccan Embassy in their country.
