    Description

    Marrakesh, known as the "Red City" and probably the most prominent former imperial capital, will leave you with memories to cherish for life. 

    Marrakech is a perfect combination of old and new Morocco; and is situated at the foot of the Atlas mountains. 

    The most prominent attraction is Djemaa El Fna/Jamaa el-Fnaa. It is the largest square in Africa. When evening falls it fills up with steam-producing food stalls. Indulge in the bustling activity there, listen to Arabic story tellers, watch magicians and Chleuh dancers.

    Plan to spend at least a few days wandering through the lively souqs/souks/bazaars, admiring the old gates and defensive walls, see the Saadian Tombs, the remnants of the El Badi Palace and visit the Koutoubia Mosque with its 12th century minaret.
