How to Spend 1 Day in Marrakech

How to Spend 1 Day in Marrakech

The bustlingsouks (marketplaces), sereneriads (traditional houses), and intricate architecture make Marrakech a favorite destination in Morocco. While you could easily spend days wandering the labyrinthine medina, it’s possible to experience Marrakech in a single day. Here’s how to make the most of your limited time. 

Morning: Marrakech City Highlights

Navigating the busy streets and back alleys of Marrakech can be a daunting task, especially for first-time visitors. Get your bearings by joining a morning walking tour. With the help of a local guide, see key landmarks such as Djemaa El Fna, Koutoubia Mosque, Ben Youssef Madrasa, Saadian Tombs, and the opulent Bahia Palace without getting lost. To explore on your own, take a hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus, with two routes through the city to help you see the sights at your own pace. 

Afternoon: Medina Shopping

You don’t have to be a shopaholic to feel the urge for retail therapy in Marrakech. Thesouks or bazaars of the old medina teem with shops selling handcrafted items—everything from leather goods and handmade jewelry to ceramics and glass lanterns. Learn how to navigate the maze of shops while getting the best deals on a shopping tour with your own private guide. You’ll walk away with tips on how to haggle and what to look for when shopping for carpets, spices, and crafts.

Night: Sunset Camel Ride

Wrap up your day in Marrakech with a quintessential Moroccan experience, a camel ride through a palm grove just outside the city. These experiences typically include a visit with a local Berber family (often over a cup of Moroccan mint tea), followed by a gentle ride through the Palmeraie as you learn the importance of camels to the Moroccan people. Choose an option with round-trip transportation for hassle-free drop-off at your hotel.
