MUST SEE, MUST DO
Think Arabian nights, think Marrakech. This exotic city of mosques, markets and minarets is an intoxicating assault to the senses – a maze of medieval streets, Arab-esque arches and souks piled with merchandise.
Set against the backdrop of the Atlas mountains, Marrakech's stylish riads and boutique hotels make it a brilliant choice for a romantic getaway. The city is easier than ever to get to, and you'll see a list of our favourite romantic hotels in Marrakech on the left.
Djemma el Fna square
This tourist honeypot in the midst of the Medina is a giant 24/7 piece of street theatre – a riot of colour complete with fire eaters, jugglers, snake charmers, storytellers and more. Above it all rises the spire of the 12th century Koutoubia Mosque.
Bargain hunting in the souks
Rummage around the souks for Moroccan carpets, slippers, silver and leather ware. Barter for Berber jewellery, haggle over love potions and inhale the heady scent of spices. Be sure to dodge the donkey carts and mopeds.
Horse and buggy rides
Take a horse and buggy ride (calèche) around the city streets for an open-air tour of the city's streets – more fun than the red open-top buses.
Wind down with a wander through the Majorelle gardens, with its giant bamboos and shady corners.
MAKE A DATE
Marathon de Marrakech. Runners dash to the Palmeraie district and back from Djemma el Fna square.
Marrakech Popular Arts Festival. See the kasbah rock with folk dancing, Berber music and theatre.
Marrakech Film Festival. Come for the outdoor Bollywood-style screenings.
Admire the city's adobe-pink city walls set against the snow-tipped Atlas mountains at sunset from the rooftop of your Room for Romance riad, when Marrakech and its glowing minarets is a sea of glimmering lights.
