Today is for Marrakech. This amazing city is located in the middle of the country; its location attracted many dynasties along the Moroccan History and made it as their Capital. That is why you will find the walls and building of the ancient medina are talking just history.
Thus, the first historical Monument we will visit is the Koutoubya Mosque; the landmark and the highest building of the city. This mosque dates back to the 12th century and will be visited only from the outside. After that we are going to move on the 16th century Jewish quarter and into the Bahia Palace of the 19th century. The latter, is one of the marvellous palaces in the country and was owned by the grand vizier of Morocco in the late 19th century. From this palace we will wander in the twisted alleyways of the medina to see its traditional Markets and souks. It will be then time to visit the famous square of Marrakech Djamaa Elfena where you can find snake charmers, Acrobats, Musicians…
After lunch we will visit Majorelle Gardens named after the famous French painter who constructed his art deco villa and started the botanical gardens. In 1980 it became the residence of Yves Saint Laurent.
Optional dinner with fantasia show.
We leave Marrakech after breakfast and we take a leisurely drive to Essaouira; a colourful fishing town situated within 15th century Portuguese fortifications, where great beaches and surf beckon. You have the day to relax on the beach or alternatively explore the UNESCO-listed medina with its various souks and woodcarving workshops. Any city gate leads to the medina, so you’re unlikely to get lost. The beach is in front of the Medina and there are plenty of cafés with terraces, both ideal for relaxing for a few hours. Blue doors and window frames abound as do the artists shops – buy a carpet or Thuya woodcarving or sit on the beach sipping a mint tea as the sun sets. There is the opportunity to do some optional activities, such as quad biking, surfing, horse trekking and wind surfing. Enjoy a great night out in Essaouira
