   »  Marrakech
Sumptuous, capricious and sensual, controlled by the majestic Atlas Mountains, the so called « the Pearl of the South » cannot fail to be impressive to the visitors and the first impression that it offers us is true to the various literary descriptions, so is it a passionate description or a deja vu? In all cases, it is simply unforgettable.
It has been declared as World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is one of the most prestigious and emblematic capital of the ancient Moroccan empire. It is the town of the thousand and one nights, a mythic place and a gathering place for the people looking for unusual and astonishing sensations.
It is with Fez, Meknes and Rabat, one of the imperial cities of Morocco.
It has an incredible atmosphere, filled up with intense flavours, bright colours and frenetic sounds. It is a chameleon, changing, like the big cosmopolitan cities.
The first name to this city was « Marroukeck » (« come quickly ») ... due to the reality and the fact that many tourists wanted to stay forever in the city between its souks and its streets hidden from the sun, drinking a mint tea, listening to the music, boatmen, dentists, snakes charmers, tellers of good fortune, sales of unusual objects and jugglers, concentrated on the famous, exotic and frenetic Jemaa el Fna square.
The night life seems more intense in the streets than in the closed premises. It does exist night bars and typical restaurants spread in the entire city.
