Djemaa el Fna 4.0 stars
Square - #1 of 22
Reputed to be the largest public square in Africa, Jemaa el Fna is the heartbeat of Marrakech. I would recommend that you visit at night. There is a spectacular array of stalls all with their own lighting systems from hijacked mains electric ... [more ]
Souks of Marrakech 4.0 stars
Shopping - #2 of 22
The souks are one of the biggest draws to Marrakech and the medina. They are a shopoholic’s dream come true and the choice is so immense that the experience can seem overwhelming. The souks form a myriad of cobbled intertwining streets on the ... [more ]
Marrakech/Jardin Majorelle and Islamic Art Museum 4.0 stars
Museum, Gallery, Exhibition - #3 of 22
at the beautiful Jardin Majorelle. I went in January but the colours of the walls, pots and planting were still breathtaking. It must be even more stunning when the season is warmer. Created by landscape painter Jacques Mojorelle in 1924, later ... [more ]
Saadian Tombs 4.0 stars
Cemetery - #4 of 22
Marrakech is rightly famous for its souks. However, what do you do when you are tired of walking round the markets. Try visiting the Saadian Tombs. The Saadian dynasty ruled much of southern Morocco during the 16th and 17th centuries. Sultan ... [more ]
Marrakesh Museum 5.0 stars
Museum, Gallery, Exhibition - #5 of 22
The museum of Marrakesh is hosted in the lovely Mnehbi Palace, which was built during the 18th century. The palace itself is really worth seeing, as it has a very unique architecture. I really loved the whole interior of the building, and the ... [more ]
Ali Ben Youssef Medersa 5.0 stars
Building - #6 of 22
If you go to Marrakesh and visit the Museum of the city, take some time to visit the Ali Ben Youssef Mdersa school. It is right nearby. The school was founded around the 14 century and it was especially meant for teaching the Koran. It is amazing ... [more ]
Bahia Palance 4.0 stars
Castle, Fortification, Palace - #7 of 22
everything you ever needed to see and know about intricate stucco work, mosaic (zellij) and inlaid woodwork. You need to imagine the place filled with opulent furnishings and just as grand people in the late 19th century. What remains are the ... [more ]
Ensemble Artisanal 4.0 stars
Market Place - #8 of 22
then head off to Ensemble Artisanal on the Ave Mohammed V just inside the Remparts (city wall), opposite the Cyber Park - takes 5-10 mins walk from the Jemaa El Fna square, by the Koutoubia. I felt very comfortable asking questions to the many ... [more ]
Horse Carriages 4.0 stars
Other Urban Landmark - #9 of 22
The city of Marrakech spans an incredibly huge area and means tired aching feet at the end of a day of sightseeing! This being said a relaxing hour long horse and carriage ride around the sights is a very leisurely experience. The horse and ... [more ]
Mellah 4.0 stars
Quarter - #10 of 22
Mellah is the Jewish Neighborhood of Marrakesh. You can find it in the old part of the city. This area is slightly different than the rest of the city. The houses are different and the whole atmosphere for that matter. Many Jews came here from ... [more ]
Marrakesh Walls 4.0 stars
Castle, Fortification, Palace - #11 of 22
The old Medina neighborhood of Marrakesh still hosts the impressive city walls built during the 12th century. The walls are one of the main attraction of Marrakesh, in my opinion, as there were many tourists visiting them when I was there. There ... [more ]
Koubba 3.0 stars
Building - #12 of 22
The Koubba is a very old building and a main tourist attraction of Marrakesh. In fact, I think it is the oldest building in the city. It had been buried and recently discovered. They dug it up in 1948. The Kuobba dates from the 12th century and ... [more ]
El Badi Palace 5.0 stars
Castle, Fortification, Palace - #13 of 22
The El Badi Palace used to belong to the Saadi dynasty, just like the Saadian tombs, which I also recommend visiting. The palace was probably built in the 16th century. Now it is mainly in ruins, which is a real pity, because in those times it is ... [more ]
4x4 Camel Route (Marrakesch-Ourzazate) 5.0 stars
Valley, Gorge - #14 of 22
I highly recommend this day activity. We wanted to visit another areas of Morocco, so the staff at our hotel in Marrakesh pointed us in the direction of a company who organised a Camel Route Drive including visit to the famous Ait Benhaddou and ... [more ]
Kasbah de Telouet 5.0 stars
Castle, Fortification, Palace - #15 of 22
I fell in love with this stunning abandoned Kasbah in the Tizi'n'Ticka Pass, the Berber Trail desert tour, just 130km from Marrakesch. Despite being partially in ruins some rooms where beautifully conserved. Our guide told us that unfortunately ... [more ]
High Atlas Mountains 5.0 stars
Mountain - #16 of 22
No trip to Marrakech is complete without a visit to the spectacular High Atlas Mountain range. I hired a private taxi from my Riad in the Medina for £80 and thoroughly enjoyed the scenic winding drive up into the snow capped mountains. I hired ... [more ]
Gueliz 4.0 stars
Quarter - #17 of 22
Gueliz is the new part of Marrakesh. The area was built by the French in the 19th century. I think it is the most modern part of the city and the one that most resembles Europe. I loved to take walks there and I even went shopping for clothes. ... [more ]
Qzadria Square 4.0 stars
Square - #18 of 22
The Qzadria Square can be found in the Jewish neighborhood, Mellah. The square is also known as Place des Ferblantiers, which could be translated as the Square of the Tin Workers. It deserves its name because even in these days, the square and ... [more ]
Mille et un Nuit Hammam 4.0 stars
Shopping - #19 of 22
Walking around the Grand Place, Jemaa El Fna, you'll be handed several leaftets. Luckily our Riad knew of this place, Hammam Mille & une Nuit, and said it was OK to go, meaning not a rip off or sleasy. My friend and I went for the traditional ... [more ]
ISIS Spa 4.0 stars
Shopping - #20 of 22
part of the plus side of Marrakech is that it is traditional to have a hammam - so why stop there - have a massage too! they use only natural products, including argan oil products. The setting is very chic and professional, but friendly and ... [more ]
