Next it's back to Marrakesh where you will finish your holiday.

DAY 1 - MARRAKECH ARRIVAL

Welcome to Marrakech, the town where the Arab culture of the cities meets the berber culture of the mountain villages, where the weary sub-saharian traders (carrying gold, salt and slaves) would ply their wares to the merchants who would then bring them to Europe.

DAY 2 - MARRAKECH - ESSAOUIRA

Visits to Menara Gardens, Koutoubia Mosque, Saadian Tumbs, Bahia Palace before heading to Essaouira, the most popular winds-surfing destination by the Atlantic Ocean. Essaouira features tall white houses, yellow details and blue doors, narrow streets and the ramparts that protect the most of the town. Overnight in Essaouira.
