Tour Itinerary: Marrakech City Tour
Jemaa El Fna
Discover Jemaa el-Fna Square, considered one of the main cultural spaces in Marrakech and has become one of the symbols of the city since its foundation in the 11th century. It represents a unique concentration of Moroccan popular cultural traditions realized through musical, religious and artistic expressions.
El Badi Palace
This palace was built by the Saadian sultan Ahmad al-Mansour in 1578. It was constructed on the occasion of Moroccan victory over the Portuguese at the Battle of the Three Kings in the town of Ksar el-Kabeer near Tangier. This palace lost its glory after it was looted and stripped of the marble and building material after the fall of the Saadian Dynasty. Most of it was taken to Meknes by Moulay Ismail. Now the palace stands in ruins. A tiny little area has been renovated and turned into a museum. You can see stables, dungeons, four sunken gardens with huge pools, and summer pavilions here. All this gives us a glimpse into the past and shows us how glorious the palace must have looked in its heydays.
The Majorelle garden
The Majorelle garden is very pretty, and the Berber Museum is very rich seeing all those pieces of jewelry and traditional clothes made living the old time of Morocco. The garden was made in the 1920s by the French painter Jacques Majorelle. The subtropical Majorelle Garden is located in the heart of Gueliz in Marrakech.
The Old medina of Marrakech
The old medina of Marrakech will offer you the chance to explore the souqs, palaces, shrines, fountains, Mellah, royal graveyards, and the ancient city gates and ramparts. Among all these, you will see a warren of narrow cobblestone alleys. These are lined with ochre-colored, interlocked houses. There is an abundance of Riads and restaurants here too. In the heart of the Marrakech Medina, you will find Djemaa el-Fna, the main square. You can see donkeys carrying goods, craftsmen working in centuries-old ways, and people dressed in traditional attire. You will be transported back to medieval ages here. It seems like time just paused in the 12th century here.
