3 days in Marrakech

To the experts :)

My partner and I are travelling to Marrakech on sunday for a 3 day break, we are first timers to Marrakech and want to make the most of the time we have there!

We would like to possibly go on a trip maybe to sand dunes or something, does anyone know a good one?

Also just any kind of tips or advice on places to visit would be great.

Thanks in advance

Kate :)

with only 3 days sand dunes are too far, take a half day trip to the Atlas Mountains - ask your accomodation for a quote

If you only have 3 full days in Marrakech I recommend to stay in Marrakech, morocco is a very large country, to see little you have to drive long distances . It will be better if you have one day for sightseeing in Marrakech, day trip to Imlil or Ourikka valley and the last day maybe a day trip to Essaouira and last night end by a hammam in the medina

I'm with nibrika on this. There is so much for you to do in Marrakech, from the souks and Djemaa al-Fna, to the El Badi Palace and the Bahia Palace, to the Medersa Ben Youssef, to the museums, to the tanneries, to the Majorelle Gardens, to the Menara Gardens, to the Saadian tombs, to the Mellah, and so much more besides. Half a day to the mountains would be great, perhaps taking in lunch at Kasbah du Toubkal in Imlil, but if you take out more time than that from Marrakech you will probably feel as though you have hardly scratched the surface of this fabulous city.

Most Sahara tours, going via Ait BenHaddou are 3 days tours at least. There are 2 day tours available to the Zagora dunes, but you're looking at 8-10 hours to the dunes on the first day and the same the next day after sleeping in the desert. It is stunning but would be exhausting.

Day tours from Marrakesh that you may like would be to the Ouzoud Waterfall, the highest in North Africa (just watch out for the scammers) and also a day trip to one of the beaches. Ait Ben Haddou is also simply stunning to visit as are the views on the way.

We went to the Marjorelle Gardens in Marrakesh which was relaxing and explored the square and souks, but found that only filled one day.

Hope this helps x

Stay in Marrakech. Sand dunes are WAY to far. You'll spend your holiday in the car only. Just got back and spent 3 days there. Plenty to do and experience.
