Let's face it - no travel in Morocco is complete without taking time to explore beautiful Marrakech. Among its rosy-tinged buildings you'll discover ancient archaeological marvels and twisting medina alleyways where every turn yields a wealth of new sights, sounds and scents. Take a moment to get your bearings then start bargaining like a local! At night, lose yourself in the crazy street theatre of the Djemaa el-Fna, where vendors and entertainers compete for attention amid jostling crowds. This is absolute magic - it's absolute Marrakech.

Mingle with locals selling fresh vegetables, herbs and spices and see the quarters of the carpenters and other artisans. By night, be caught up in the rhythm of the music, emotion of the dancers and skill of the jugglers - a perfect introduction to Morocco.
