- Majorelle Gardens
- La Bahia Palace
- Exploring historic Medina neighborhoods
- Snake Charmers in Jemaa El-Fnaa

- Cats run rampant around the main square. They are harmless, but don’t be surprised if you see them running in and out of the restaurant kitchens!
- The cheapest tour guides of the city are the taxi drivers. Many of them speak English, although speaking French or Arabic is helpful. They know a lot and can transport you easily from place to place. Beware the crazy traffic!
While I was studying abroad in Madrid during college, a friend and I took advantage of a long weekend and decided to catch a flight a few hours away to a country I had always been curious about. When I first stepped foot in Morocco, I was overwhelmed with all the sights, smells, and sounds. I didn’t know what to expect, as it was my first time in an Arab country. There were mosques everywhere, and calls to prayer. Many people wore long robes and pointy slippers. There were bright colors and patterns as far as the eye could see. Everyone was really friendly and hospitable. I loved walking around the market stalls with spices and magic carpets and watching the snake charmers do their magic in the main square, Jaama el Fna.
