Days 11 - 13: Marrakech / Departure
Arriving in Marrakech mid-afternoon, there’s time to explore Djemaa el-Fna, the huge square in the medina with an eclectic array of jugglers, storytellers, snake charmers, musicians and soothsayers before retiring for the night. The next day, prepare for a full-on exploration of Marrakech, Morocco’s southern capital: tour the Palais de la Bahaia (the place that housed Bou Ahmed’s four wives, 24 concubines and numerous children), and visit the Saadian Tombs, the royal burial ground of the Saadian dynasty. Based on time and interest, walk among the narrow streets and shops of the old city, and view the extensive Berber collection of clothing, jewelry, textiles, doors, baskets and carpets at the Maison Tiskiwin. Enjoy a farewell dinner and one last night at the Riad Daria or Riad Samsara (or similar) before transferring to the airport in time for your international departure home.
