As one of the royal cities of Morocco, Marrakech is home to many relics and ancient ruins. Get a glimpse of the country’s fascinating history when exploring the Bahia and El Badii Palaces, and the Saddian tombs.
Be mesmerised by even more antiquated treasures during a visit to Dar Si Saïd Museum, on Rue Riad Zitoun Jdid. Set in an old palace, its collections include stunning exhibits of Moroccan wood carving and leatherwork.
To immerse yourself in natural beauty, meander through the ‘green lung’ of the city, La Palmeraie. Situated on the outskirts of Marrakech, this area covers more than 13,000 hectares of land and sports a staggering 150,000 palm trees. Relax and revive by taking a camel ride along the shaded paths on a balmy afternoon.
In the evening, head to the city’s main square, Djemaa El-Fna. Delight in authentic Moroccan entertainment while watching dancers put on a show, and listening to storytellers weave captivating tales.
