Ait Benhaddou- Tizi N'Tichka- Marrakech

Drive towards Ouarzazate, then Aït Benhaddou, the most famous Kasbah in Morocco and a UNESCO World Heritage site, which is believed to date back to the 11th century.  As you head up and over the High Atlas, you can look out for the highest peak, Mount Toubkal, which stands at 13,671 feet (4,167 meters). Near the top of the Tizi-n-Tichka Pass, you can also enjoy great panoramic views over the mountain range and the road ahead that snakes down the mountainside.

The first town you'll come across after the pass is Taddert where you can stop at an oil cooperative to learn how olives are processed for a variety of uses. After tasting a few products, you can head back on the road. As you descend from the mountains, you'll notice a dramatic change in climate and landscape, with river valleys carved into the hillsides. After all the tranquillity of the mountains and the desert, soon you will be in the midst of the hustle, bustle, and clamor of vibrant Marrakech.

Check into your hotel and relax before heading back out in the early evening, when Jemaa el Fna, the main square, comes alive with musicians, performers, snake charmers, games, food stalls and more. Wander around stalls, vendors, and performers or enjoy it all from a distance and situate yourself in a café surrounding the square while enjoying the show and tucking into a delicious meal.
