Hello everyone, I was just wondering if there is a better way to get to Morocco from Spain. My husband and I will arrive in Paris on April 15, our original plan was to stay in Paris for a few days, then head to Barcelona for a few days, then go to Madrid, then go to Morocco after that. We purchased Eurail global pass.
We thought about taking the train from Madrid to Seville as it seems like a close stop over before Morocco, and then take a bus to either Tarifa or Algeciras and then take the ferry cross the Strait of Gibraltar and get to Tangier.
It seems like a lot of travel just to get to Tangier from Madrid, so I had a look at the flight options, and it worked out at least 155 euro for the flight including 1 checked and 1 carry on luggage.
We then need to head back to London on May 5 as we have 2 nights accommodations booked for the King’s coronation. I was thinking on the way back from Morocco, we can get to Seville, and stay there for a couple of nights then flight back to London instead of taking the train as the train reservations aren't cheap either and we may have to stop in Barcelona for a night to break down the trip.
So my question is if there's a better way to get to Tangier from Madrid, we would prefer to get to Tangier on the same day that we leave Madrid.
We are not sure what we are doing but it would be highly appreciated if we could please get some advice of how to get to Morocco easier.
