Marrakech city tour in half day
Marraekch city tour details :
Enjoy a comprehensive sightseeing tour of Marrakech, exploring the medieval streets of Morocco’s “Red City” through its palaces and monuments.
Following a pick-up from your hotel or riad at9:30 or 14:30, explore one of Morocco’s oldest imperial cities at sites such as the Koutoubia, one of the largest and most beautiful mosques of the western Muslim world. Marvel at its 221-foot minaret and masterful architecture that evokes the Giralda of Seville.
Continues to a peaceful enclosure in the Kasbah to see the Saadian Tombs, dating back to the 16th century of Sultan Ahmad al-Mansu. Admire the colorful tiles, Arabic script, and intricate carvings, hidden to the world after they were sealed up until 1917.
Next, spend an hour at the 19th-century Bahia Palace, built in 7 years by 1,000 craftsmen from Fez. Intended to be the greatest example of Moroccan and Islamic architecture in the world, a haphazard arrangement of secret apartments open onto inner courtyards, set in the center of a 2-acre garden. See stunning stucco work, Islamic mosaics, and carved cedar wood roofs, surrounded by Moorish-style pleasure gardens of orange and cypress trees, and fragrant jasmine plants, the tour include also the Ben youssef Medersa and the old medina of Marrakech .
