Day 1: Marrakech
An enchanting palm oasis set against the rise of the snowy High Atlas Mountains, Marrakech is Morocco’s second oldest majestic imperial city and retains the splendor of its ancient past. Buildings are blushed in hues of rosy earth, and horse-drawn carriages clip along broad avenues lined with palms and tropical fruit trees. Donkeys carrying carts trawl past fragrant rose and jasmine gardens.
Your certified guide will reveal the secrets of the ancient Bahia Palace from the days of the harem, now populated by a sentry of nesting storks. Step into the ancient royal Saadian Tombs, explore the vibrant and historic Jewish mellah, where some of the finest jewelry is found in Morocco, and view the majestic Koutoubia Mosque before entry into the ancient Market to explore and to have a cup of tea with one of the local artisan to be as close to the culture as possible.

  1. What a beautiful place. I have not been to Morocco but from your article it sounds like a really beautiful place to visit. The 5 hour hike on the hillside is what my travel partner (my husband) would look forward to the most. I myself would look forward to all the meals . I love tasting meals of different cultures

    With the current travel restrictions I have not been able to travel anywhere and being the traveler that I must say it has been a real challenge. I will be booking for a trip once the travel restrictions are eased

    Thank you for this wonderful info.

    Regards
