Is 3nights enough? General first time q's

A friend and I are considering a short trip to Marrakech from Spain next may. We probably only have 3night 4 days there. Will that be enough time? What are some good day trips and can they be easily organised? Is it best to stay around the main market? We are two females in our early 30's, well travelled. Thanks!!

Three nights and four days will give you a good introduction to Marrakech but, of course, in that time you will only have just started to discover this amazing city. As you might expect, the more you get to know about the place, the more you realise there is still so much to discover. The main market area - the souks and the main square, Djemaa el Fna - is a great place to begin, but don't limit yourself. A quick look at a guide book will tell you how much more there is to see ... Badi Palace, Bahia Palace, the Saadian tombs, Ben Youssef medersa, the tanneries, the museums, just to list a few obvious sights in the Medina (the old town). But you should try to look more widely than this, too, perhaps visiting the Majorelle Gardens and the Menara gardens in the Ville Nouvelle (the new town) at least. Day trips are easily organised, to the Atlas Mountains, for example, but will you have time? Have a great stay!

Agree with Alan, it will be a nice introduction, you will get see most of the tourist sites and you can take a daytrip to the Atlas Mountains (either Setti Fatima or Imlil).
