I liked the Medina. We stayed inside it for over a week. But there are some thing te be aware of. First of all, in spite of my rather well developed sense of direction, I got lost quite a few times. Google maps is useless,...More
I had a chance to stay in, walk through and shop/haggle in the medina and it was an experience! First let me say the medina is busy! It is tight, full of people selling, walking and shopping, as well as people on bicycles, scooters and...More
A trip to Marrakech just has to include a visit to the medina, including Jemaa el Fna. A real culture "shock" for European visitors, which gives a real flavour of the Moroccan way of way. Fascinating, has to be seen to be believed, an interest...More

Not sure I would take a year old to Marrakesh if I'm honest. However, that is your choice. Riads are small so make sure you do your homework. When you arrive at immigration there is a route to the left for families so you dodge the, average, two hour queue.
Ask your riad to book a car for u. The guy will take u to the riad. Better be safe than sorry, esp at night. I just went to marrkech and we hired car and everything was smooth. P.S - our riad charged us 150 dirham to pick us... More
Ask your riad to book a car for u. The guy will take u to the riad. Better be safe than sorry, esp at night. I just went to marrkech and we hired car and everything was smooth. P.S - our riad charged us 150 dirham to pick us up from airport one way. This is better than getting taxi bc they might try to rip u off.
