There's lots more to do: don't miss a visit to Essaouira Ramparts, stop by Cooperative Tamounte, get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, and take a leisurely stroll along Essaouira Fishing Port.

Marrakech

You won't run out of things to do in Marrakech, a city where you can spend days exploring grandiose palaces and mosques, photogenic gardens, sacred tombs, and traditional mansions that evoke a bygone era.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Cyber Park Arsat Moulay Abdeslam and Mellah. Popular historic sites such as Medina of Marrakech and Bahia Palace are in your itinerary. There's much more to do: admire the natural beauty at Jardin Majorelle, get to know the fascinating history of Menara Gardens and Pavilion, soar above the sights with a balloon tour, and hunt for treasures at Jemaa el-Fnaa.

To find photos, where to stay, more things to do, and tourist information, read Marrakech trip itinerary builder.
