Marrakesh in 2-3 days
Explore the medina: From the Katoubia to the Djemaa el-Fna and souks for a spot of haggling. Then head out to the Kasbah and Mellah (Jewish quarter) to explore the museums, palaces, tombs and old Jewish quarter. Make sure you spend your evenings at the Djemaa el-Fna watching the spectacle and make time for a half day at a Hammam were you can have the traditional Marrakeshi spa experience.
In one week
You’ll have a lot more time to explore Marrakesh in detail – from the medina to the Kasbah there are dozens of individual museums, tombs or sites of archaeological merit. You could also take a taxi to the pungent tanneries where the same technology has been used to tan leather for hundreds of years. Alternatively, there are some notable sights in Gueliz (Marrakesh’s new town) that are worth a visit including Jnane El Harti park and the famous Jardin Majorelle. And if time permits take a day trip to the High Atlas Mountains for a taste of Berber hospitality you’ll only get outside the city.
