You won't run out of things to do in Marrakech, a city where you can spend days exploring grandiose palaces and mosques, photogenic gardens, sacred tombs, and traditional mansions that evoke a bygone era.
Step off the beaten path and head to Walking tours and Le Jardin Secret. There's much more to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Jardin Majorelle, relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, admire the striking features of Koutoubia Mosque, and see the interesting displays at Boucharouite Museum.

For where to stay, other places to visit, maps, and tourist information, refer to the Marrakech journey app .
