I'm a solo senior lady traveller and absolutely love Marrakech. I have stayed for the last three Christmas periods and will be returning again this year, I am so looking forward to it. I do not find the sellers in the souks to be offensive, quite the reverse. It's very easy to put European ideas and standards on people abroad,... More

Take time to visit the Medina but also take in the city walls. If you don't walk part of it the chances are you will see it from your taxi or transportation around the city. Pink walls and huge gates to marvel at.

Following the ancient walls of the city is very interesting. There is so much to see and you get a great feel for the diversity of the city. I would avoid the hottest prts of the day though and take plenty of water.

It was nice to leave the hectic city, souks and traffic, and walk out the gates and see the pink walls outside the medina. It is nice to walk from one gate to another outside the city walls and great some great photos of the Atlas mountains

Once we have exhausted ourselves in the souks it is a nice change to walk out the gates and see the pink walls outside the medina. We would say it is not a stand alone attraction, however good to see when you do a full days of adventuring.

Take the time and walk form the Royal Palace along the Walls of Marrakesh it will not take 1/2 hour to the next great door. Best time is in the morning or evening, the colours brighten up. Wonderfull Scenes to tkae photos with the Atlas Mountains in Background. Along the walls are Orange Plantations - great smell. Sit a while... More

I have been to and have lived in many Moslem countries and this is at the bottom of the list. It is difficult to get around or should I say find your way around . The sights are not spectacular and the locals are more interested in squeezing money out of you for nothing and sending you in the wrong... More

The ramparts go round the old city. There is 15km of them./ They are unremarkable. Bab Debagh - to get there you have to run the gauntlet of the tanneries (very smelly). is worth a look. It has chicanes so invaders could not run straight through.

The guidebook suggested we take a horse carriage to explore all the gates, which are all different, but I think it's not worth it. When you go in and out of Medina by taxi or on foot you'll see the gates anyway.
