After lunch, we will start our journey heading to Marrakech through Tizi N’Tichka and reach Marrakech in the evening.
Day 6 : Explore Marrakech :
Marrakech is surrounded by imposing stone walls from its medieval days as the wealthy capital of an empire. Within those well-preserved fortifications are palaces of red-hued stones, gardens, palm groves, and a Medina of narrow streets and arches packed with fascinating souks and stalls, which have long held a mystical attraction for visitors.
Begin today’s exploration of Marrakech at the magnificent Saadian Tombs, which date back to the 16th century; the burial site of 166 members of the Saadian Dynasty, the tombs were sealed up and forgotten for centuries, then discovered in 1917. From the Saadian Tombs, ride a horse carriage through the city to the Gardens Majorelle, the masterpiece and former home of French-born artist Jacques Majorelle, designed in the 1930s and later owned by Yves Saint-Laurent; as you’ll see on your visit, there are 400 species of palm trees and 1800 varieties of cacti here. Walk through the Medina of Marrakech, stopping to visit the Ben Yousef Madrasa; founded in the 14th century as a Koranic school, ( now it’s a museum).
