The route starts on the Jemaa el Fna – the famous central square in Marrakech. More than a thousand years ago, the square has served as a meeting place for caravans from all directions. They brought merchandise from Africa and Asia to Europe and vice versa. The trade again attracted musicians and storytellers. And still there is a colorful parade of artists coming together. Both during the day and in the evening you will be amazed. Most of the riads are hidden in the narrow streets you’ll pass by during your tour. Only when the door opens do you find a small palace where you can spend the night in style. Originally riad means “inner garden”, but nowadays most are used as bed & breakfast. After Jemaa el Fna, the shopping starts. I’ve included my favorite souk-spots to have lunch at for your needed break. Promise, a break is needed:).
