Morocco is a country with rich heritage and marveled landscapes. Arrive in Marrakesh and find the culture and the scenery displayed in the streets and around the edges of the city. The Atlas Mountains peak in the distance, their caps are bright with snow. The city’s western edges look towards the city of Essaouira and the Atlantic Ocean at the country’s fringe. Your Morocco travel agent will provide a private transfer to take you from the airport to your spectacular hotel in the heart of the Old City. The historic mansion has been refurbished with luxury and culture in mind, providing traditional atmosphere and décor mixed with cosmopolitan comfort.
The city is emblematic of charm and Morocco’s past, spellbinding in its imagery and enchanting in the vibrant soul of heritage. Djemaa el-Fna is filled with snake charmers that have captivated the hearts of visitors for centuries. Storytellers recite celebrated tales of heroes, princesses, and sultans. Rooftop cafes provide an aerial view of the bustling square and the narrow streets that wind away from the activity. The aroma of mint tea is soothing. The minaret of Koutoubia Mosque can be seen towering over 250 feet into the sky.
Concentric orbs decorate the spire and glow in the warm afternoon light. The mosque was constructed in the 12th century and the minaret acts like a compass when you travel through the Medina, visible from most directions. The top is decorated with a band of ceramic tiles. The majesty of the city embraces you from the beginning. It takes you into the celebrated history that has informed the future of the people and the country. The songs of Djemaa el-Fna ring into the evening and the delightful stories of Marrakesh are layered with new meaning.
