Lose yourself in the swirl of storytellers and snake charmers, apothecaries and herbalists, street food vendors and cloth sellers in one of Africa’s busiest squares – Jemaa el-Fnaa in Marrakech’s medina.
Explore myriad alleyways and side streets thronged with stalls, silversmith and tin workers, carpet bazaars and curio sellers…and discover the palaces and mosques of ancient Marrakech.
Then decamp to the beautiful beach at Essaouira with its warm Mediterranean Sea and scenic coastline. Again Morocco’s colourful past and its time-honoured traditions are revealed in this historic port with its mighty sea-facing defensive wall. Not to mention the town’s centuries-old medina, grand buildings and pretty white houses gathered round gated courtyards.
