Example tour: 5 day Magical Marrakech
The red city, Marrakech! Perfect for a five day trip. Five days is enough to enjoy all the highlights of Marrakech. We rented an apartment near Jardin Marjorelle. A good location to start wandering the city.
Day 2: after a visit to our neighbours Jardin Marjorelle, we walked via Gueliz (where we enjoyed lunch) to the Menara park. Here we had a nice tea, a walk in the park, we visited the gate house at the water reservoir. A relaxing afternoon before we headed to Jemaa El Fna again for diner. After we ordered tea and watched the city pass at the square.
Day 3: we headed to the medina early with a list of things to see. Everything is close to each other, so prepare good, so you find the most effective route. We visited:
- Ben Youssef Medersa
- Saadian tombs
- Badii palace
- Bahia palace
- Almoravid Koubba
- Rahba Kedima square
- Bab Agnou
- Ali Ben Youssef Mosque
- Shrob ou shouf fountain
Day 4: we drove around Marrakech, its very nice to see the fields, little local villages, the palmeries. Nice to escape the busy city for a day.
Day 5: the last day in Marrakech, a terrace day. After a long breakfast near our apartment we headed to the medina without a goal, just wander around. Very nice. Then we had a very long lunch overlooking Jemaa El Fna. Wandering back to the apartment for a little siesta, and getting ready for our last diner in this magical city.
I’ve visited Marrakech before, but always one or two days max. Five days is a good period to visit al the highlights at your own pace.
Her beautiful medina, her vibrant people and delicious food.
