With its pink pise palaces framed by the snow-capped High Atlas Mountains, on the edge of the Sahara Desert, Marrakech is a bustling city with a big character. The influences of Europe, Africa and the Middle East have merged to create a flourishing hotbed of history and modern energy. This is a city on the move, abuzz with new museums, rooftop restaurants, boutique riads, and souks where lively locals haggle. Lose yourself in the labyrinthine chaos of the Medina, a walled maze of alleyways where you can buy anything from lanterns to handmade Berber rugs. Explore exotic gardens like Jardin Majorelle, or the Royal Palace’s Agdal Gardens, where several pools are hidden among olive groves and fruit trees. Sit down to enjoy a freshly brewed mint tea in a café or on a rooftop terrace, or head out of the city for exciting adventures like quad biking across the Sahara, climbing the Atlas Mountains and thrilling hot air balloon rides.
