Maddie S's City Tips

  • As "petit taxis" (small, yellow taxis) can be expensive, and many sights are close together, most travel will be on foot. Make sure you wear appropriate footwear.
  • Some tours and guided experiences have pre-arranged pick-ups from your hotel. If you choose to hire a guide, ask about pick-up and drop-off options. (Often at no extra charge).
  • If you choose to take a petit taxi, agree on a price before entering. When leaving the airport, taking a bus to your hotel will be far less expensive (ask at the airport).
  • If you want to hire a guide while you're out and about, only hire one wearing a badge of an official tourist agency. Other "guides" should be avoided.
  • Leaving a few DH as a tip for restaurant bills is considered polite. Check to make sure a service charge has not been already added before doing so.
  • Bring tissues and hand sanitizer with you, as many restrooms about town do not provide toilet paper or soap.
  • Dressing modestly for men and women is suggested. Covering shoulders and knees is expected, especially when visiting mosque areas, where it is required.
  • As a rule of thumb when shopping, always agree on a price, and clarify that the price is in DH — not dollars, euros, or pounds!

    Maddie S Says:

    Jardin Majorelle, the product of over forty years of loving design by artist Jacques Majorelle, is an oasis in the middle of Marrakech's busy streets. Away from the noise and bustle of the souks and the Medina, ease into your vacation with a relaxing stroll around these small but intensely charming premises, where paths are shaded by palm trees, exotic plants and traditional architecture dot every corner, azure blue mosaic and bright yellow tiles delight the senses, and cactus plants, lotus flowers, and water lilies paint a vivid landscape. The majestic flora is nested by beautiful birds who call their song while you walk. Streams, pools, and fountains also give the garden a cool, soothing effect, and after taking in the gorgeous scenery, you can visit the on-site cafe, to have a tea and rest your limbs before continuing your adventure.

    The Ecomusee Berbere is found inside the Jardin Majorelle, and highlights Berber culture in the region. It has a general collection of art and artifacts, as well as rotating exhibitions. Once a painter's studio, the small space now provides an intimate home to videos detailing Berber daily life, mannequins in traditional dress and jewels, and informative blurbs on indigenous people and their histories. Worth the visit to really gain an appreciation of Marrakech and the rural townships surrounding it.

    Maddie S Says:

    A short walk from the Jardin Majorelle, the Medina of Marrakech is one of the city's biggest draws and the grandest of all Berber marketplaces in Morocco. A swarming center of commerce, the souks at the Medina sell goods ranging from carpets to leathers, pottery to jewels, lanterns to spices, and more. Plus, snakes, monkeys, and donkeys with laden carts are added to the mix of traffic. Visit to have a mint tea, browse traditional wares and food, and soak up the colorful stalls and surrounding architecture. Remember to haggle!

    Tips
    • Sellers in shops and stalls can be very aggressive. Feel free to browse, but try not to engage sellers unless you really want to buy something to avoid a sense of bullying.
    • As the Medina can be a bit dizzying, your hotel can recommend a guide for your excursion. Be aware that guides often work with sellers, and will take you to specific stalls.
    • Be aware that often, taking photos of or with an animal (a pet monkey or snake) will cost you. Ask about the price ahead of time.
    • Haggling is a tradition of the souks. If you do not like a price after bargaining, feel free to walk away. Often, this will get your price lowered. But do try to be fair!
    • Be careful of thieves in this area, on foot or on motorbike. Keep careful hold of your items, and be especially vigilant when taking out your wallet or mobile phone.

    Jamaa el Fna is at the heart of the Medina, and serves as a main square. Stop here for lunch, as restaurants rule the scenery, and various foods and fare are up for the tasting. Sweet cakes and ginseng teas sold at stalls make for a wonderful after-meal desert, and rooftop restaurants and terraced stalls offer equally tasty treats. So sit down to a meal among the snake charmers and storytellers of Jemaa el Fna!

    Maddie S Says:

    The Royal Palace of Marrakech is a complex with a rich history dating back to the 12th century. While visitors unfortunately cannot enter the palace complex itself, its location on the outskirts of the southern Medina and near to El Badi Palace make it a quick and easy stop for visitors to take in the high walls, manicured trees, and gargantuan wooden doors that protectively surround the palace.

    Good for

    Tips
    • No photos of the palace walls are permitted, for security reasons — guards will prevent you from taking any. A stop at the palace is purely for seeing the ramparts.

    Close to the Royal Palace, the ruins of El Badi Palace date back to the 16th century, when it was constructed as a seat of power and luxury. Though it fell into disuse and was stripped of many of its adornments, the courtyards and main rooms are still well-kept, and a visit to the palace will take you back in time and fuel your imagination. The courtyards, gardens, and pools afford a rare, peaceful atmosphere, and visitors are welcome to visit the historical museum on-site, the underground tunnels weaving beneath the palace by lantern light, or to simply stroll the hallways and walks. Be sure to take a moment to step out onto the terrace, where a stunning view of the Atlas mountains await.

    Situated behind the Kasbah Mosque, the Saadian Tombs hail from the 16th century and were returned to their former glory and beauty after being re-discovered in the early 1900s. The mausoleum contains the intricate burials of over fifty members of Saadi Dynastic royalty, as well as an attractive garden area containing the grave sites of servants and soldiers. The highlight of the mosaic masterpiece is in one of the central three rooms, where the sultan's grandson Ahmad al-Mansur is buried. Columns raise the roof high above the marble detailing and cedar steel, a true monument not to be missed.

Its 19 gates afford primary access to the city, and the tall pink walls that spread far around the area speak of Merrakech's military history. The gateways are the primary focus of a visit to the ramparts, and the ornate Bab Agnaou gateway stands nearest to the tombs, with a façade of brick and stone forming a decorative horseshoe arch that makes it most impressive.

    Maddie S Says:

    A great place to wrap up the day, the Marrakech Souk is a den of artisans. Like other souks, sellers have a variety of goods, and some of the joy of visiting the market is in wandering around and comparing what is on sale. A dizzying concoction of streets and alleys, this is a fine place to shop for souvenirs and get your final fix of Moroccan wares.

    Tips
    • Many places sell similar items, so wander and get a good handle on who sells what to get the best price and the highest quality goods.
    • The salesmen here can be very aggressive, which can be tiring. If you find this off-putting, do not spend too long in the souk, or it will become stressful.
    • Haggling is normal here. Be prepared to hold your ground on the price you are willing to pay. Even if the deal falls through, there will be another vendor.
