Marrakech, Morrocco is situated close to the Atlas Mountains
, and on most days you can see blue mountains covered with snow over the rooftops of your vacation rental. Marrakech has been a resort for many years, and comes with all the luxuries you would expect at your accommodation. The setting is splendid, the city exceptionally beautiful, and the liveliness almost never ending. The city offers all kinds of activities, from swimming at the pool at your lodging to excursions to the mountains for some world-class skiing.
Marrakech is a fantastic city; it is also a symbol of Morocco
. The streets of the old city of Marrakech have been too narrow to allow cars, and tourists searching for the "real" Morocco have turned the medieval structures of Marrakech into a tourist destination at the doorstep of your vacation rentals.
The city is divided into two distinct parts
: the Medina, the historical city, and the new European modern district called Gueliz or Ville Nouvelle. The Medina is full of intertwining narrow passageways and local shops full of character. In contrast, Gueliz plays host to modern restaurants, fast food chains and big brand stores.
There are a wide variety of things to see and do in Marrakech. An entire day can be dedicated to wandering around all the different souks (markets)
, seeking out the best bargains a stones throw from your condo rental accommodations. The city also offers several historical and architectural sites as well as some interesting museums. The most worthwhile tourist areas are centered to a rather small zone, starting in the north with the suuqs, continuing through the town square of Jemaa l-Fna with its crowd of storytellers, musicians and the Koutoubia mosque which minaret is visible from practically any accommodation in Marrakech. Take in the market and the main square where you can see acrobats, musicians and dancers. Going beyond this, the Menara gardens is considered the most romantic place in town. But don't forget to visit one of the many examples of sights left by the many Europeans and Americans who fell so much in love with Marrakech that they constructed their palaces and gardens here.
