    Hi Elinor,
    Morocco is like every country in the World. There are cities it would be hard to explore by yourself, like Fes Medina with its 11 000 alleyways. You'd need a local guide there. The rest I think you'd be fine using LP. (However the maps suck sometimes). Walking in the streets at night has never been safe anywhere in the world. Petits taxis are available just negotiate the fare before getting in.
    As a woman, and as general guideline, shoulders, cleavage and knees should be covered at all times. Wearing shorts (men and women), low-cut tops, and showing midriff is not recommended as it will restrict your entry into buildings of a religious nature and family homes and is considered disrespectful to the local culture. Long, light-couloured, lightweight sleeved shirts, trousers and skirts are respectful, cover your body, keep you cool in the heat and protect you from the harsh sun and men's attention. Have a great trip. about 7 years ago

    Just take care and be cautious, but don't be too worried.
