Wondering how long to stay and how to spend your time in Marrakech? Here we detail what to do day by day including activities, review Dar Les Cigognes, the riad where we stayed, and suggest where to eat if you have up to four days in Marrakech.
Marrakech Morocco’s Red City
Mystical, marvelous Marrakech (also spelled Marrakesh). In my mind it is a somewhat exotic destination with a mystique all its own. And honestly, I think that’s why you go Marrakech, either you are drawn to visiting or you’re not. For many people it is on the bucketlist and if you are like us, it was on it forever!
It doesn’t have any famous tourist attractions, no world class museums, and not many reasons to go there other than it’s Marrakech. And we loved it!
Nicknamed the “Red City” or “Ochre City”, Marrakech’s buildings and city walls all share a lovely, red or ochre color. If it were a modern phenomenon you might think some paint company sponsored the town!
