Day One | 3 Days In Marrakech itinerary

Once you arrive in Marrakech and arrive at your accommodations, it’s time to wander around the Medina and get to know the beautiful city. The Medina was founded in 1070 and is a UNESCO World Heritage site. In addition to being a great tourist attraction and the center of daily life in Marrakech.  The best way to get to know the city and spend your first day is to walk around the Medina and explore the colorful markets and historic sites. Rue Semarine is the main gateway to the souks, where you can buy many goods for sale, such as caftans, carpets, robes, and unique antiques. While wandering, you will find several market areas. They all offer specific goods, like the Souk des Teintures, which is full of dyed wool, and Souk El Khemis, which is the flea market.

To complete the first day of your 3-day Itinerary, head to Jemaa el-Fna Stalls once the sun starts to set. You’ll immediately smell the roasting meat once you enter this giant square. Make sure to grab a table once you see it, order some of the famous mint tea, and enjoy the atmosphere.  You can choose between several different food options from the many food stalls and enjoy the sounds of instruments playing in the square.

Day Two

After all the hustle and bustle of your first day in Marrakech, spending your morning relaxing in a luxurious Riad is the perfect activity for your 3 day Marrakech itinerary.  I recommend booking the Riad Be Marrakech for lunch to have several hours of a peaceful oasis at your fingertips.  I recently visited this great Riad and loved every minute of it. You can have the tajine or couscous for lunch and enjoy the roof terrace with a great view of the medina. In addition, the Riad also features a Hammam, Yoga Studio, and Cookery Courses.

After your relaxing lunch at Riad Be Marrakech, head to Jardin Marjorelle, which is a beautiful outdoor garden that you’ll love for sure. This garden oasis is filled with bright, colorful fountains and a lot of different beautiful plants. With so many photo opportunities, this is an excellent destination for both relaxing and taking your next great Instagram photo. In addition, Jardin Majorelle features a Berber Museum inside and is located right next door to the Yves St. Laurent Museum, which poses a perfect opportunity to continue your journey for the afternoon.

Marrakech is full of fun cultural opportunities, and after your day of relaxing and exploring, the best way to close out the evening than with mint tea and a view of the medina. Look no further than Nomad, which offers excellent food and a rooftop view.

Day Three | 3 Days In Marrakech itinerary

If your last day in Marrakech is on a weekend day, you absolutely cannot miss Brunch at The Pavilion at La Mamounia. This littering poolside Pavilion restaurant features an all-you-can-eat buffet where you can rub elbows with the city’s greats. So naturally, you’ll want to make sure you’re dressed well in smart casual for this luxurious hotel that radiates the fine Moroccan art of living.  This five-star palace is located only a few moments away from Jemma el-Fnaa Square. Which makes it the perfect activity during your 3-day itinerary in Marrakech.

Before you leave, make sure to head to El Badi Palace and explore the ruined remains. The palace was commissioned by the sultan Ahmad al-Mansur of the Saadian dynasty after his accession in 1578. Unfortunately, the palace was neglected after his heath and turned into ruins after the marble was stripped away.  Now, the spacious grounds offer tourists gardens and an abundance of space to walk through. In addition, you can see stables, dungeons, and pools throughout the ruined palace. So, take the rest of your time in this beautiful country. Wander around this grand palace, and explore what used to be here. There’s plenty of space and photo opportunities for luxury travel bloggers (like me). And a perfect end to your 3 day Marrakech itinerary.
