The center of Marrakesh is the famous square, Djemaa el-Fna, which is packed with entertainers such as acrobats, drummers, dancers, pipe musicians, comedians and storytellers.

In the evening, about 100 small restaurants set up right in the middle of the action offer Morocco’s traditional cuisine at its very best.
Bus, taxi, train, car, or horse cab are the major transportation in the city. During high traffic times, walking is a great way to see the dense downtown area. For long distance trips, there are a few different types of buses that travel in and out of Marrakesh.
