The trip will help you to explore Marrakech on foot. Explore the Secret Garden, Le Jardin Secret, which was created more than 400 years ago during the Saadian dynasty. The garden was rebuilt in the mid-19th century and since then some of the prominent political personalities of Morocco and Marrakesh have lived there. The garden has a tower on it, from where you can have a splendid sight of the nearby medina and the spire of the Koutoubia Mosque. Explore the communal oven, where you can learn about the wood-fired bakery. Explore Souks (markets) and Souk Semmarine, which are full of the biggest collection of jewelry shops, rugs, and leather goods. You also get to visit the spices market from where you can buy several spices with sweet-smelling essences. Visit Jemaa EL Fna Square, which is the heart of the city and a Unesco World Heritage site. Here, you can find many henna artists, snake charmers, jugglers, street entertainers, and much more. Get some dry fruits or juice from the stalls, enjoy some music, and site in a rooftop cafe to get a beautiful scenic view of the square. After this, visit the workshops with Marrakchi maalems (local craftsmen), where you will get to know how to make leather slippers or see people engaged in basketry, pottery, and much more.
