Welcome to Morocco! Arrive in Marrakech and transfer to your hotel close to the medina. Spend the remains of the day at leisure.

The rest of the day is free for you to explore the Marrakech at your own speed. Perhaps visit Bahia Palace and the Saadian Tombs or take a Caleche (horse drawn carriage) ride to the Jardins de Majorelle. This evening consider visiting the Hivernage with its upmarket cafes.
