After breakfast in the riad, you will enjoy a morning guided tour of Marrakech "the Red City of Morocco”. Your guide will ensure that you see all the sites with historical and cultural interest, including the Koutoubia Menaret; the Saadian tombs; the beautiful Palace of Bahia and the Ben Youssef Coranic School. Finally, end the morning by walking through the medina alleys -getting a chance to admire all of the different artisans performing their crafts before arriving at the famous Jamaa El Fna Square. Lunch at a restaurant near the square, and then in the afternoon visit the gardens at Majorelle, and have a short tour at Gueliz -the new city of Marrakech. After dinner you will have the option to walk through the square entertained by magicians, story-tellers, tooth-pullers and food sellers. Overnight accommodation will be in your riad as above.
A trip to the splendid city of Marrakech calls for a stay at the fabulous Riad Joya. Traditionally Riad is a Moroccan home, yet in recent times has been known for the lavish boutique hotels sprouting in this desert retreat. As simple and plain as the exteriors may look, the interiors are more ornate than you can imagine. For the magic unfolds in the beautiful tiles, the grandiose mosaics, and the picturesque romance of the fountains along with the plush fall of the fabrics! And every part of it, be it the Courtyard, the Dar Arabe luxury suite, the Tuareg suite, the Naos suite, the Domus suite or even the Hammam and spa, speak aloud of the reeking opulence of the Riad Joya. A true retreat of tranquil peace, this boutique hotel is ideal for a dreamy Arabian night after exhausting yourself exploring the chaotic Medina.
After I booked our trip to Turkey, I started researching the lamps I was looking for. I realized that they weren't Turkish lamps at all. They were Moroccan lamps. Oh boy, I should've done my research first. So, now I had some explaining to do to my hubby. "So, the lamps aren't Turkish, they're Moroccan. We need to go to Morocco," I said. He laughed, "And you already booked our trip to Turkey? Ok, well, what are we going to do?" This is where I'm grateful to be married to a man who embraces my crazy. "We're going to Morocco, too. I'm going to add it to our trip," I replied.
