4 nights in Marrakech. What to do?

Hi! First time visiting Morocco and unfortunately only have 4 nights and 5 days (Touch down at Marrakech at noon Friday, leaving Tuesday 5pm). It’s just me and the wifey, we are from NYC.

Kindly suggest how to make the most of a short trip.

Thank you in advance!

George

for one i would just do Marrakesh , with maybe 1 day trip.

that way you wont waste a lot of your little time traveling.

i recommend getting a good travel book, i like lonely planet.

As been suggested a day trip to ourika or imlil is a welcome change from sultry Marrakech and then maybe a morning cooking class or spa. The rest spent touring the medina and visiting museums and garfens

Hi there, we just got back from Marrakech. We stayed 3 nights. I think that’s a good amount of time spent. Ouarzazate is really far, not doable unless you’ll be adding extra days to accommodate the distances and enjoy the scenery. We hired a guide on a 1st day, just to get a feel of the lay of the land. We arranged for a hot air balloon the next day, but was canceled due to weather. Ended up going to a hammam and got massages. We walked everywhere. We took a cooking class. One of the days we went out of the Medina to YSL gardens. Sounds sparse in between but it filled most our days.
