Marrakech is an antique city of Morocco with its 1000 years old history and is also the home of ancient mosques, beautiful palaces and green gardens. Vendors in the flourishing souks of Marrakech trade pottery, jewellery, leather goods and old-fashioned textiles.
The red city walls are just as ochre as tradition holds, the souks as intoxicating, the palaces as intricate and impressive, and the museums as fascinating. The Jemaa el-Fna is the beating heart of the city, coming alive at night in a swirl of snake charmers, acrobats and storytellers, all eerily lit by the light of lines of fragrant charcoal braziers cooking up local delicacies. Marrakesh is also a city of increasing sophistication, luxurious villas, first-class restaurants, elegant bars and stunning riads.
This city of increasing sophistication does not disappoint.
