Travel Tips for visiting Marrakech

Marrakech remains an unavoidable stopover during a trip to Morocco.

Marrakech is an imperial city and it shows!

During your trip to Morocco, go and admire its ramparts, the Bahia Palace, the Saadian tombs, the Koutoubia... 

A whole weekend in Marrakech allows you to linger during the visits, to stroll in the souks and on the famous Djemâa el-Fna square, which becomes an unrivaled popular theatre at night. You will also love the Majorelle gardens, colors, and greenery, the horse-drawn carriage ride, and the freshly squeezed orange juice. We advise you to stay in a riad, these charming accommodations with patio and terraces. 

From up there, you can contemplate the Atlas mountains, covered in snow for part of the year, with a glass of tea in your hand. Moroccan happiness.

Marrakech is one of the destinations that make travelers dream... even if its old lovers swear they no longer recognize their "Pearl of the South". 

Then, this imperial city appears as a jewel set in the natural setting that constitutes, not far, from the peaks of the High Atlas.

An endless stream of visitors, restaurants for tourists, shops full of junk ...

So many aspects that would tend to make Marrakech a city disfigured by tourism ... if we were to stick to the first look. 

Starting with the huge Jemaa-el-Fna square and its animation which are worth the trip alone. We then get lost in the inextricable maze of the medina. Its colorful and noisy souks are probably the richest in the country. A thousand small trades rub shoulders in an amazing atmosphere.

At the bend in the streets, hidden treasures of Marrakech's architecture emerge, whether it be superb mosques, remarkable palaces, but also (and especially) riads that have become guest houses.
Marrakech is not a museum city: it is culturally active, exciting museums are opening, and art galleries are flourishing. The red city preserves its memory, and values its past, but its creativity makes it profoundly modern.

Frequently Asked Questions by Travelers planning a trip to Marrakech

How to get around Marrakech ?

To get around the Medina of Marrakech, you will have to walk. The streets are so narrow that no means of transportation can get around (except for motorcycles and bicycles, which you will have to dodge constantly).

Finding your way around is a bit tricky since there is no detailed map of the Medina, and the existing maps have street names that are different from the names on the signs.

Finally, the only way to get to your destination is to ask someone to show you the way. Any person will kindly accompany you to the requested address, and in exchange, they will ask you for a tip, which curiously enough, will always seem too little.

Bus in Marrakech
Even if you have the option of taking the bus to get around, seeing the poor condition of the buses and the people they carry, you will most likely prefer to walk or take a cab. 

Cabs in Marrakech
In Marrakech, there are two types of cabs: "small cabs" and "large cabs". The small ones are used to get around the city and the large ones are recommended if you are leaving Marrakech.

Cabs in Marrakech have a taximeter, but they often "forget" to activate it. Before getting in, make sure the driver turns it on, and if he doesn't, find another cab. In any case, if you decide to get into a cab without a meter, you will have to negotiate the price before it starts, so that you don't have problems when you arrive.

A good price for a trip to Marrakech is usually between 15 DH (1,40 €) and 25 DH (2,30 €).

Many people order a cab for a whole day and take the opportunity to go to more remote places such as the Ouzoud Waterfalls or Essaouira.

Carriages in Marrakech
Even if it is certainly not the best alternative to get around, a carriage ride during your stay is not to be missed.
