Sightseeing and things to do in Marrakech
Marrakech will overload your senses. One of the key spots for sightseeing in Marrakech is Djemma el Fna.

The rich array of carpets, jewellery, spices and handmade wooden crafts on offer will bedazzle you, while alongside acrobats, story-tellers and dancers will delight you. By night the food stalls that line the square are certain to make your mouth-water as the whole city appears to turn into a huge open-air restaurant. read more >>
The signature pink mud-brick architecture never allows you to forget the exotic land you have entered. Be taken back in time as you explore the labyrinthine alleyways of the old fortified city while carefully avoiding snake charmers and turbaned potion-sellers. There are a great many cultural things to do in Marrakech, why not try a Moroccan Folklore evening or a visit a Berber Village.
Once the hustle and bustle of the city gets too much why not explore the serenity of one of the many palaces or gardens with their fountains, pools and lush bamboo groves. As an Islamic country the city also boasts many impressive mosques representing a diverse range of architectural styles and periods in history, a range of excellent Marrakech tours are on offer helping you to gain a greater understanding of this varied city.
Outside Marrakech are the breathtaking Atlas Mountains. Here you can experience the wonders of nature with the dramatic terrain, see exotic plants, small hillside villages and mountain streams. Take a 7 day trek into the mountains and really get to know the vastness of this North African terrain. If this sounds too tranquil, why not explore the mountains on the back of a quad bike.
