Marrakech Prices & Travel Costs

Last Updated: Jan 2024

Marrakech as a lot in common with Fez, but it’s also quite different in many ways so quite a few travelers take time to see them both. The highlight of the city is Djemaa El-Fna, which is the huge open square in front of the souks in the medina. During the day it’s filled with entertainers and hustlers (be careful) and at night it becomes one of the world’s great outdoor food courts. Most of the other sights around the city are free or cheap, but of course shopping is the main event so that can easily get out of hand if you don’t bargain well and just buy everything that appeals to you.
