Marrakesh

A medieval city of drama, myth and mystery, Marrakesh will captivate all who venture inside its ochre-coloured walls. Step in and you will be transported back to a place and time that has been consigned to the annals of history. The winding alleys of the Medina and the sights, sounds and smells of the souks, the human drama that is Djemaa el-Fna square and the Atlas Mountains rearing up in the background all make Marrakesh Morocco’s crown jewel.

Djemaa El-fna is a square and market place in the pulsing heart of the medina. This is where Marakshi life is at its most colourful and vibrant, particularly when dusk falls on another balmy day. Vendors sell freshly squeezed fruit juices, and as the night progresses eateries appear out of (what seems like) thin air.
