So much of the Medina in Marrakech is easy to get lost in - one of the reasons why it's such a brilliant adventure to visit. Should you want a walk that you wont get lost on, follow the ramparts. Look for the beautiful gateways and you will be able to see either the inside or the outside of the... More

The walls of the Medina are lovely, plenty of parks and resting areas while walking around, a few displays around the gates to explain tourist a bit of history would be great.

Parts of the medina walls are pretty much everywhere, I wouldn't make a point out of touring them but some parts are a real pleasure to see. What I could recommend is bring enough water with you and beware of vehicles when you stop to admire the walls. Marrakech has a pretty chaotic traffic and many areas have no sidewalks.

Spent a few hours exploring around the Ramparts. Great views from both within and around the Ramparts. Filled with history!

I wouldn't say that this was an attraction or a must see but the city wall does surround the old town and you cant really avoid seeing it. The holes in the brickwork are from where the scaffolding was placed and never refilled. Interesting though and you will see the various entrances as you travel around.

We used the walls to orient ourselves when we walked to the jardin marjorelle. They are inpressive and its interesting to see some of the gates. I would agree with a previous reviewer and say you see them when walking around other must see sights.

It is often suggested in guide books to take a caleche around the ramparts and this is possibly a lovely ride if you have plenty of time to spare and especially at sunset. However if you are doing a very short trip like us and don't have the time, rest assured we saw quite a bit of the medina outer... More

There are approximately 19 gates in the ramparts at Marrakech, and a good way to see them is in a horse drawn carriage, known locally as a caleche. We bartered for one on the main square , and it took us around the souk, then outside and around the walls and ended, at our request, at the Majorelle Gardens. Caleches... More

We started off our holiday by a carriage ride around the city. It took around an hour and cost 200 dirhams. It was lovely to see real life at a great pace. There is a great little bar too called the Kosy bar. It overlooks the walls so around sunset you get to see the storks flying back to their... More
