(This is the last of my Morocco trip report).
We stopped at Todra gorge on the way to our hotel that night, before heading out to Marrakech the next day.
We enjoyed a drive through the high Atlas Mountains…
Our riad in Marrakech was wonderful and very centrally located, steps from the souk!
Marrakech was my favorite city in Morocco! Some of the places we visited were the Bahia Palace, Jardin Marjorelle, and Jemaa el Fnaa (the huge square on the edge of the medina). And, of course, lots of last minute shopping in the souk!
Our final dinner together was at La Mamounia, a “palace hotel.” It has been welcoming guests since 1923. We walked around the gardens, which were gifted to Prince Al Mamoun as a wedding present in the 18th century.
We were sad to leave Morocco, but hope to come back some day!
Next up, girls’ getaway in NYC!
