A city break in Marrakech is full of interesting activities; dancers in the main square, the mayhem in the souks, donkey carts and bustling tourists in scooters and bicycles. You will enjoy calm and quiet in the Majorelle Gardens which is filled with rare plants and bright colored flowers. The Islamic Art Museum is filled with interesting objects from personal collections of Pierre Berge and Ives Saint Lauren. Local tribal art, jewels and carpets can also be found here.

You can enjoy an evening in the Djemma El Fna square which drastically changes from snake charmers at noon to fire eaters at night. It is surrounded by charming cafes so you can enjoy delicious delicacies as you get entertained not by a flat screen, but by brilliant medieval performances.
