The fourth largest city in the country, Marrakech has an unexpectedly vibrant energy. To get a true feel of Marrakech, head to the numerous ‘souks’ (markets) around town where you can haggle for exotic traditional textiles, pottery and jewellery. Djemaa el-Fna, the centre of the city’s activity, is widely defined as a ‘metaphorical urban icon’; think snake-charmers, acrobats, street theatre, musical performers… A carnival every day! To escape the beautiful madness, you can take a day trip to the Agafay desert, where the mesmerizing scenery takes visitors back in time; quad biking and jet skiing can be arranged around here.
With so much to discover in your Morocco holiday, we have the best of retreats: our hand-picked villas with pool in Marrakech.
