Marrakech / Morocco with kids
Bright, sunny, colourful and endlessly fascinating, it’s no wonder that children love Marrakech for many of the same reasons we do.
We stumbled upon this great online article in the week: http://ciaobambino.com/morocco-with-kids-marrakech-with-kids/ which succinctly explains how best to experience Marrakech with little-ones in-tow.
As well as mentioning the more typical things to do – like the Jemaa el-Fna’ – the site, Ciao Bambino, also suggests taking a horse and cart ride around the city, visiting the Koutoubia Mosque (and also letting ‘the kids have more of a run around in the Cyber Park’ nearby). We also liked that at the entrance to the synagogue in the Jewish quarter – the family spotted a family of tortoises, confirming that there is always a surprise around the corner in Marrakech!
We also agree with their tips on where to eat in Marrakech – ‘Le Fondouk for a real Moroccan feast in traditional family-friendly surroundings’ and Chez Ouazzani on Rue Ibn Aïcha ‘for BBQ meats.’ This website is a decent starting point for families planning a visit to the city.
