Full day introduction to this Garden City, visit the dramatic Almohad Koutoubia Minaret and the lavishly-decorated Saadien Tombs – some dating from the middle 1550s. Spend some time in the tranquil Menara Gardens and the Bahia Palace before walking through the labyrinth of narrow alleyways making up the renowned cool, colourful and aromatic Souks of Marrakech. The Dyers’ Souk being the last to be visited you emerge into the famous Djemâa el Fna Square (which translates as ‘Assembly of the Dead’), where, until the 19th century, the severed heads of criminals were traditionally displayed. Now we see stalls of goods, from fruit to alarm clocks; snake charmers and water sellers; fortune tellers and public scribes; tumblers and nakkachat - women with syringes full of henna – soothsayers and gnaoua musicians. The perfect start to any stay in Marrakech for, without a doubt, you’ll be back in the souks for more. Dinner and overnight in our Marrakech hotel.
