Marrakech in depth Overview
Discover Marrakech’s delightful markets and bustling souqs.
Let's face it - no travel in Morocco is complete without taking time to explore beautiful Marrakech. Among its rose-tinged buildings you'll discover ancient archaeological marvels and twisting medina alleyways, where every turn yields a wealth of new sights, sounds and scents. Take a moment to get your bearings then start bargaining like a local. At night, lose yourself in the crazy street theatre of the Djemaa el-Fna, where vendors and entertainers compete for attention amid jostling crowds. This is absolute magic - its absolute Marrakech.
