Essaouira is one of those small towns in Morocco you hear people say how much they loved, yet you don’t get to know much about it. That is until you get there. And once there, you see why people love it!
Step into the villages of the Atlas Mountains and you’ll feel like you’re stepping back in time as you are immersed in the Morocco of the past, where traditional Berber homes are dotted across the landscape and mules are one of the main modes of transport. The scenery here is breathtaking, with snow dusting the mountain peaks in winter, wildflowers covering the valley floors in spring and incredible views in every direction.
In a country rich with history and culture, Marrakech is a city with unbelievable diversity, vibrancy, culture and a hint of Medina madness. This medieval city is filled with exotic sights, sounds and smells and if this is your first visit to Marrakech, then I want to give you some words of advice so that you too can enjoy the sights and rhythm of this 1000-year-old city much more hassle-free.
