Djemaa El Fna
No visit to Marrakech would be complete without visiting this central hub – in fact, it’s hard to avoid it!

You will want to pick up some bargains and enjoy some local tastes. If you want to get to know the real Marrakech, this is a great place to start.
One for the nature lovers – this incredible cactus garden can be found in outer Marrakech. One of North Africa’s largest cacti farms, you can enjoy a tour of its fascinating seventeen acres and visit the largest cactus. At eight metres long and eighty years old, it truly is an incredible sight. You will also find camels, perfect for keeping children interested in the tour.
Hammam Rosa Bonheur
One of the most traditional ways you can experience Moroccan culture is by treating yourself to a hammam. Found in a riad (the traditional Moroccan house), this communal bathhouse is a mainstay in Marrakech.
An attendant will give you the full hammam experience, enjoyed in a hot steam room where you will be scrubbed with olive oil, rinsed fully and left feeling brand new. A true opportunity to feel like part of a flourishing Moroccan tradition.
So, start thinking about packing your bags – the sights and sounds of Marrakech await your discovery.
