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.

Head to the Djemaa el-Fna. Once a traders' square it now functions as the city's entertainment space. Delve into the souqs of the medina and explore the different industries. Mingle with locals selling fresh vegetables, herbs and spices, and see the quarters of the carpenters and other artisans. By night, be caught up in the rhythm of the music, emotion of the dancers and skill of the jugglers - a perfect introduction to Morocco.
