A steady walk from the apartment, in Djemaa el Fna square, you will find the largest market in Africa. By day it's a vast area of spice, fruit, textile & souvenir stalls surrounded by snake charmers, singers, story tellers, healers and fakirs, all attracting crowds of locals and tourists. Surrounding the square are bars and restaurants, some with terraces affording commanding views of the hubbub below. At night open air eateries take over from the stalls. Spreading out from Djemaa el Fna are miles of covered narrow streets lined with shop after shop selling everything under the sun - everything is to be bargained for.
The modern part of Marrakech is made up of wide open boulevards and busy streets lined with orange trees and modern shops to suit all tastes. There are street cafés and restaurants a plenty, and bars and night clubs open to the early hours. There are many parks and gardens in and around Marrakech; in the Menara you can take camel rides among the olive groves.
