What is the best area to stay in Marrakech?
Marrakech means the “Land of God”, which is perfectly acceptable once you take in the sublime and graceful scenery of the landscape that sets the city at the foothills of the daunting Atlas Mountains. This is the third largest city in Morocco and has heaps of historical and cultural things to do and see with some of them particularly iconic which you will recognise as well as symbols of the country.
Without a doubt, the best area to stay in Marrakech is the old and historical district of the city, the Medina. When you think of Morocco this is what you will assume with the main square, Djemaa El-Fna, being the focus point and is where everyone congregates to see the bustling and endless souks, snake charmers and many other performers and people offering services. The majority of the tourist attractions are in close distance and after have a drink on one of the many rooftop cafes that surround the square and really take in this spectacular authentic view before dining in one of the traditional Moroccan restaurants. There is no shortage of hotels in the area and a Riad, a traditional Moroccan house, has to be tried once and like the saying……when in Rome…..
