Discover Marrakech, a city that lies under the dramatic peaks of the Atlas Mountains and has for centuries been a trading post between the deserts of the Sahara and the ports that traded with Europe. Within the heart of the city, you find the Medina. This labyrinth of narrow alleyways are a delight to wander through. Known as souqs, you will pass by traditional marketplaces and artisans at work. The main square, Djemaa el-Fna, comes alive at sunset.
Here you will find countless food stalls, acrobats and musicians. Many guests opt to stay in a traditional riad hotel within the Medina, where you can wander up to the roof terrace, drink a mint tea and listen to the call to prayer echo over the city. For more space, head to the verdant palm-fringed Palmeraie. You find the hotels come with landscaped gardens, vast pools and views over the Atlas Mountains.
There is so much to see and do in Marrakech, and you can easily spend five days or more here. You can head off on day trips into the Atlas Mountains to experience Berber culture and a walk in the hills. Balloon rides over the nearby Agafay desert are a must if you have a head for heights. We also think a tour in a traditional side-car is an experience worth considering. At Millis Potter, we offer a whole host of riads and hotels.
