Marrakech is the heart of Moroccan tourism, where the country’s ancient history and traditions mix with a modern European influence.
Home to the luxurious Palmeraie Rotana Palace, the city is colourful and striking with its 16km-long ramparts and vibrant open-air markets.
The Djemaa el-Fna is the beating heart of the city, bustling with acrobats, story-tellers, water sellers, dancers and musicians. By night, the square turns into food stalls, becoming a huge open-air restaurant.
Popular trips from the area include the valley of the Ourika River in the nearby Atlas Mountains as well as the valley of the Draa River to the south.
