Holiday & Travel Guide For Marrakech, Morocco

Sightseeing

Marrakech is a medieval city, with a historic palace and Saadian Tombs. You will be amazed by the architecture of the building that houses the Marrakech Museum, with beautiful works of art displayed in it. Take a bus tour stacking around the main sites of the city, such as the Koutoubia Mosque, built in the 12th century with beautiful gardens. Unfortunately there is no access to the mosque for non-Muslims. Marrakech is a busy and vibrant place, full of color and sound. It can be very busy so if you want to go away from it for a while go sightseeing to the beautiful Ouzoud Waterfall where you will meet lots of local monkeys. While relaxing with a drink at an outdoor restaurant, this is a great place for a photo opportunity or even to ride a camel into the desert and spend the night camping under the Moroccan stars. There are many smaller towns close by that will fill your days with some wonderful sights if you want to explore this charming country. An afternoon in the Square of the Dead is delightful, with snake charmers, musicians and story tellers to entertain all the family. Before you leave Marrakech, fly over the city in a hot air balloon, it’s a wonderful experience and very memorable with some fantastic views and plenty of photo opportunities.
