Andorra seems now very calm and quiet after our trip to Marrakesh. I travelled to Marrakesh with Jammu and our 2 very good friends (also working colleagues) last week, and since we visited so many places I decided to do few different blogposts.

The first 3 nights and 2 days we spend in the Medina of Marrakesh, which is the old town of the city surrounded by a 12 km long wall. It is probably the most touristic thing that everyone does, I mean after all, it is the Medina that Marrakesh is known for (for tourists at least). When travelling to Marrakesh you should definitely stay in a Riad within the Medina. A Riad is a Moroccan house or palace with an interior garden or courtyard, most of them actually have a small pool within the garden, although ours did not.

I had booked a very cozy and traditional Riad were we had a small room for 4 people, including a private bathroom and shower. It also had a very cozy rooftop where we spend our nights and mornings before heading to the buzzing streets. For 3 nights (4 people) we paid in total including all the taxes 171€, which is around 15€ / person / night, which I think is pretty fair price for what we got. The Riad was called Riad Mamma House if someone feels like going there. This is one of the more cheaper options, you can find plenty of very posh and more beautiful places if you want to spend a bit more. The Riad were we stayed was very authentic and cozy, and taking a nap on the rooftop after a day in the marketplaces was priceless.
