Description

Your 5-day STI by Central Holidays Mystical Marrakech vacation package presents splendid opportunities to explore this exotic place. At the dawn of its history, Marrakech is the imperial city which gave Morocco its name. It's a land that kings battled for and many dynasties ruled. Here, magnificent palaces, verdant gardens and mosques, sit among hotels, restaurants, and golf courses. A guided tour tempts you with a taste of the old city, its foundation, and its nearly one-thousand-year-old history. Delve into the city as you visit the Bahia Palace, the royal necropolis of Saadian Tombs, Jemaa El-Fna Square, and the minaret of the Koutoubia Mosque, whose silhouette inspired the Giralda of Seville and the Hassan Tower of Rabat. Take your time to uncover your own treasures to take home in the form of souvenirs from Marrakech's open air markets, called souks. As you continue on your vacation adventure, discover the Ourika Valley, situated at the foot of the famous Oukaimeden ski resort, with its pottery making villages waiting to be explored. Next along your journey, travel west to the coast and visit Essaouira, a deep-rooted Portuguese city sometimes called Mogador that was made famous by the 1949 Orson Welles' movie Othello. In the afternoon, you will have the unique opportunity to experience Port Skala and visit its harbor, medieval medina and souks, consulate district, and Jewish Quarter called Mellah. Time for you to enjoy Marrakech at your own pace rounds-out this exciting vacation in this magical land.
