A WEEK IN MARRAKECH

First visit the highlights of the city

Starting with the Medersa Ben Youssef, built in 1565 by the Sultan Moulay Abdellah, this is a former Koranic school and a true jewel of architecture. Then take a tour from the Koutoubia mosque. With its high minaret of 70 m, it is the largest and most visible of the city monument. You may not enter if you are non-Muslim, but you can access its beautiful gardens. Do not miss also the Bahia Palace eBahia Palace and the Saudi tombs. Finally, come and learn more about the history of the city by visiting the Museum of Marrakech. It is located in the heart of the city, in the Palace Dar Mnebhi which is a very good example of the classic Andalusian architecture. It is a must that you need to do in Marrakech!

Stroll on the Jemaa-el-Fna square

During the day, it is one place like any other, nothing more or less. But at the end of the afternoon, it fills up world, so that you quickly need sharp elbows. But worth the effort! Overrun with slices of Moroccan life, the sumptuous place Jemaa-el-Fna is also classified in the world heritage of Unesco. Charming snakes, carriers of water, acrobats, dancers, storytellers, tattoo with henna, herbalists, grocers, tamers of monkeys... here the camera crackling every second!

Dare venture you into the many souks in the city

In the narrow alleyways of the Medina, the souks of Marrakech are among the largest in the country. Some leave from the Jemaa-el-Fna square. This is the time to crack with plenty of memories. Observe, admire, negotiate, all around a mint tea, and let go by the colors and intoxicating scents of these stalls scattered throughout the city. A Council, venture into the heart of the Medina, this is where you will make the best business!

Pick up the air at the Majorelle garden

The Marrakchi come cool off when the heat gets too much here. This beautiful garden in bluish colors is today renowned for fashion designer Yves St Laurent which bought it in 1990 to restore. It brings together an impressive collection of plants from the four corners of the world. There is also a Museum of Berber.

Bring home the flavors of Marrakech

After having carefully chosen products on the shelves of the market, learn to cook dishes that are the hallmark of Moroccan cuisine, like the famous "Tanjia", tajine of lamb to the prune, or legendary couscous, by attending a cooking class Moroccan.

Do skiing in the Atlas mountains

Barely out of the pool at your hotel, and some 75 km further, you're fit your skis and hurtling down the slopes of Oukaïmeden, in the High Atlas. Open year-round, the station is located at 3000 m altitude. In summer, you can discover this site occupied since prehistory rock paintings.

Relax!

And for that, the offer is various in the beautiful Moroccan city! Start by enjoying the luxury of a real oriental hammam, an experience full of which you will leave totally relaxed! Then continue by going to a cocktail on one of the many rooftop of the city. Many are located around the square Jemaa el-fna, and from there you can quietly observe the busy life that stirs beneath you. Finally, complete your Moroccan stay to an unforgettable night in one of the wonderful riads in the city. Their frames are often beautiful and some offer even absolutely fantastic culinary experiences.
