Kick-start your day with an orange juice from one of the famous Djemaa el-Fna orange stalls – stand number 28 near Café Argana does a mean freshly-squeezed juice. Once you’re suitably refreshed, stroll down the street towards Hotel Les Jardins De La Koutoubia and look out for street vendors frying msemen. This pancake-style delicacy is served up with drizzles of butter, honey or jam and makes the most scrumptious breakfast.
Afterwards, dive into the maze of souks that surrounds Djemaa el-Fna and spend the next few hours exploring Marrakech’s UNESCO-listed medina.
Tucked away in the winding alleyways of the medina is Café Arabe, an Italian-style street café with a peaceful central courtyard.
Linger over a homemade quiche or pastry before walking to nearby Marrakech Museum (Place Ben Youssef). Occupying the opulent salons of the Mnebhi Palace, it’s home to an incredible display of traditional Moroccan art.
Marrakech’s medieval medina is dotted with exotic riad restaurants, and PepeNero is one of the best. Guests sit among orange trees and tinkling fountains in a traditional courtyard, supping on everything from courgette ravioli to pigeon bastille. There are two menus, one Moroccan and one Italian, so you can mix and match to suit your tastes.
Continue the night at one of the rooftop bars overlooking Djemaa el-Fna - Le Grand Balcon du Café Glacier (Djemaa el-Fna, +212 524 442 193) has the best view of the square.
Venture outside the medina for a whistle-stop breakfast at Café 16 (Place du 16 Novembre, +212 524 339 670) in the city’s trendy Gueliz neighbourhood. With its contemporary furniture, lime-green walls and fresh organic juice selections, it’s a world away from the traditional atmosphere of Marrakech’s medieval quarter.
A short walk away is the botanical haven of Jardin Majorelle. You can beat the rush by visiting this tranquil walled garden straight after breakfast.
Just across the road from Jardin Majorelle is trendy vegetarian café Kaowa (34 rue Yves Saint Laurent, +212 524 314 195). Join the cool crowd chowing down on scrumptious salads and wraps below beautiful modern art works before booking yourself into a hammam for some serious relaxation.
Hammam de la Rose, an upmarket spa hidden away in the heart of the medina, hosts some of the best masseurs in the city.
Join a long line of distinguished celebrities to eat at Le Restaurant at La Maison Arabe, a fine-dining mecca on the western fringe of the medina.
Licenses to serve alcohol are limited in the city centre, so instead head for achingly classy Art Noveau villa Le Comptoir in nightlife hub Hivernage to while away your final evening watching sequinned belly dancers do their thing.
