The Ramparts are sorrounding all the medina of Marrakech. You can visit with a horse car while the sunset, is magic!

from what we were told the ramparts in Marrakech are approx 20 klm length. There are several spots for nice pics, but i can't say that beyond that there is anything special to comment on.

These are an intrinsic part of Marrakech's char, they are well maintained, with I'm told 18 gates, now just vehicle access points.

The ramparts have lost their function of protecting the city against attack long time ago, but they are still more or less intact and maintained as a monument. I walked around the walls on a beautiful day in spring. It took just over 2 hours...More

Impressive walls surrounding the medina. Built from mud and stones and straw, they have withstood centuries of attack. They are regularly repaired, so look pretty good. Nice to do by horse drawn carriage.

So much of the Medina in Marrakech is easy to get lost in - one of the reasons why it's such a brilliant adventure to visit. Should you want a walk that you wont get lost on, follow the ramparts. Look for the beautiful gateways...More

The walls of the Medina are lovely, plenty of parks and resting areas while walking around, a few displays around the gates to explain tourist a bit of history would be great.

Parts of the medina walls are pretty much everywhere, I wouldn't make a point out of touring them but some parts are a real pleasure to see. What I could recommend is bring enough water with you and beware of vehicles when you stop to...More

Day Trips From Marrakesh And Camel Ride in Atlas Mountains Late review, but shoutout to Hamid & Abde! Salem alaykum! ;) I booked this tour the day before & Hamid was happy to arrange a private tour even though it was last minute. Pickup was punctual at 9.00 from the riad I was staying in. We drove through Tahnaout on the way to Asni for the camel ride, stopping briefly at a few goirges to take pictures. The camel ride at Asni went for about 1.5hrs & was immensely fun (camels are a lot calmer than horses). Following that there was a bit of a drive to reach Imlil valley. Lunch was served to me there at the Riad in Atlas (owned by the same company). There was probably no need for me to eat breakfast as I was served more than enough food & all of it good! The terrace has stunning views of one of the valleys & its hard not to be taken away by the beauty of the country whilst you lunch. Hamid was also nice enough to show me around the riad which had just been done up in 2014–it's a gorgeous place. We started hiking at around 14.00 & there was the option to go for a short or longer hike that took you through more of the valley & Berber villages. I'd definitely recommend taking the 2nd option as the views near the end, especially with Toubkal in the background, are amazing. Hike itself wasn't too challenging (& I'm definitely no mountain goat), & went up the valley first, past a waterfall, & into 1 of the bigger Berber villages there, before winding down back through a few other villages. I've honestly never seen such beautiful views! We finished hiking after about 2-3hrs, before heading back into Marrakech. I also asked to stop by a women's cooperative that produces argan oil & this request was also easily met. I got back to Marrakech at around 18.30. Though the private nature of the tour made it quite pricey (1735 dirhams), for me the day I had justified the price. The views were well worth it, the camel ride was a hoot & I had a blast hiking. To top it off, Abde & Hamid were easy to get along with & have a great sense of humour. Hamid in particular was an extremely adept guide; he knew a lot about the Imlil valleys, the culture, & the local Berbers there. All in all, highly recommend booking Atlas tours!

Bonjour, pensez-vous qu'il soit judicieux de faire une ballade en calèche autour des remparts (2h environ) de 18h30 à 20h30 le 22 février? Celà correspond-il à la tombée du jour (pour avoir de belles couleurs ocre), ou faut-il que l'on avance un peu notre horaire? D'autre part, nous allons au restaurant la terrasse des épices après la ballade. Pensez-vous qu'il soit possible de demander au cocher de nous laisser à proximité? Cordialement Florence
