Marrakesh is a beautiful city in Morocco. The “Rose City” or “Red City” offers visitors an enchanting taste of old world charm and opulence. Here are some of the best things to do in Marrakesh.

Many travelers who visit Morocco spend at least a few days in Marrakesh, before moving on to other parts of the country. And there’s a lot to see in the city.

Marrakesh (sometimes spelled Marrakech) is without a doubt one of the most exciting destinations in Northern Africa. The city has been an important trading hub for centuries and inside the walled Old City Medina, you’ll find a maze of lively markets and a myriad of busy alleyways – a true feast for the senses.

There are smells, colors, flavors, sounds and textures to be devoured, and even though the hectic heart of the city can feel both enticing and overwhelming at the same time, there are places where you’ll be able to enjoy moments of calm, such as the riad hotels, and several parks.

The city’s bustling souks, theatrical street vendors, and mesmerizing performers are attractions in itself, but don’t ignore the palaces, the mosques, and the food – here are my top picks for the best things to do in Marrakesh.

Marrakech. The Red City. The Daughter of the Desert.
Chances are that if you know anything about traveling to Morocco, you've heard of Marrakech. While it's not the capital of Morocco today (that designation goes to Rabat), Marrakech is one of the most popular Moroccan cities for tourists to visit; in 2017 alone, the Red City saw more than 2 million visitors.

Marrakech is both like and unlike what you'd probably expect. It's both ancient and modern; desert-like and almost tropical. It's loud and chaotic and exotic, but also far more tourist-friendly than you might think...
