Marrakech is a perfect escape, and a two to three day trip guarantees a total change of scenery, with the certainty of returning home completely charmed. Marrakech is a city that can be discovered on foot. It is neither too big nor too small, the distances are reasonable and everything can be done while walking. For a first discovery of the city, the ideal is to stay in a riad in the medina. Whichever part of the old town you choose, most of the guest houses are well located. It rarely takes more than 15 minutes to reach Jemaâ el-Fna Square.

Details of the stay: All the secrets of Marrakech - 3 days

Day 1 : Jemaâ el-Fna, the souks and the palace of Bahia

Immerse yourself directly in the atmosphere of the Medina: have breakfast on one of the terraces of the Jemaâ el-Fna square. This is the best place to discover the liveliness of the square! Once your stomach is full, go see the Koutoubia and its magnificent rose garden and then take a short walk around this famous square, which has been classified as an oral and intangible heritage of humanity since 2001. It is time to enter the heart of Marrakech: the souks are yours! Stroll through this huge Ali Baba cave of 20 ha. In the afternoon, access the Mellah, the Jewish quarter of the Medina, through the Place des Ferblantiers. Then head towards the Bahia Palace to discover a residence worthy of the Thousand and One Nights

Day 2 : Ben Youssef district, Guéliz and hammam

Head north to the north of the Medina and pass the Spice Square. On this side, the Médersa Ben Youssef, a magnificent Koranic school, will be your first stop. Then take a look at the Almoravid Quba, the last remnant of the eponymous dynasty, and the Ben Youssef Mosque, which are a stone's throw away. The nearby Marrakech Museum is also worth a visit: this 19th century palace, restored to its original state, will give you a good insight into the dexterity of Moroccan craftsmen. In the afternoon, stroll through the Majorelle garden. Don't forget to visit the Berber Art Museum located in the garden, it contains more than 600 Berber objects from Pierre Bergé's personal collections. After all these efforts, a hammam will be well deserved. To end the day in style, take a carriage ride around the ramparts and the city!

Day 3 : Kasbah district, Menara and Palm grove gardens

Start the visit of the Kasbah with the Saadian tombs and continue with the visit of Baadi Palace. Then go back up to the north of the medina to walk through its narrow streets. Step away from the tourist arteries to discover the other side of the old city. Join the gardens of the Menara and enjoy a digestive walk in this immense olive grove. Climb onto the balcony of the Menara pavilion and enjoy the view of the basin, the city and, in the distance, the peaks of the Atlas Mountains. Then, direction the Palm grove that you will discover by horse, bicycle or car, according to your desire. The ideal time to finish the walk is at sunset, when the palm trees stand out on the horizon.
