Beyond the neighborhoods are the sites and sounds of the city. Between cafes, gardens, history and nature, the variety of experiences is endless.
Marrakech is home to a myriad of wonders including its winding souks, the magnificent gardens, and hip neighborhoods of cafes and shops. However you spend your time, you’ll be delighted.
For art lovers, Marrakech has so much new energy to offer. From the lively café Le Jardin, to the Marrakech Biennale started by Richard Branson’s sister, Vanessa Branson, to bring international artists to Marrakech and to showcase Marrakech artists.
There are art cafés sprinkled throughout Marrakech with over 25 galleries in the city now, the melding of old Moroccan design with contemporary methods and approaches result in quite an adventure for the senses.
For gardens, one can never spend too much time in the Jardin Majorelle, a bright cobalt blue building and large tropical plants grow freely in this garden that never ceases to inspire and inform. Sit in one corner of the garden for a relaxing chat with a friend, or get a coffee in the café, or a lovely scarf in the shop. This is no tourist trap, this is exactly the place that artist were inspired by 40 years ago. The Jardin is the real deal.
