You won't run out of things to do in Marrakech, a city where you can spend days exploring grandiose palaces and mosques, photogenic gardens, sacred tombs, and traditional mansions that evoke a bygone era.
Marrakech is known for shopping, parks, historic sites, spas, and museums. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: admire the natural beauty at Jardin Majorelle, explore the different monuments and memorials at Saadian Tombs, tour the pleasant surroundings at Menara Gardens and Pavilion, and steep yourself in history at El Badi Palace.

For reviews, maps, photos, and more tourist information, go to the Marrakech trip builder site .

Casablanca

The port of Casablanca, Morocco's largest city and economic hub, represents the country's beating heart, established as a French protectorate in 1912.
Get out of town with these interesting Casablanca side-trips: Rabat (Russian Orthodox Church, Hassan Tower, & more). There's much more to do: get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, look for gifts at Mooi, don't miss a visit to Old Medina of Casablanca, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Hassan II Mosque.

For other places to visit, ratings, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the Casablanca trip planner .

Getting from Marrakech to Casablanca by car takes about 2.5 hours. Other options: take a train; or take a shuttle. Traveling from Marrakech in January, Casablanca is somewhat warmer at night with lows of 49°F. On the 4th (Sat), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel back home.
