In Marrakech we will be staying in a Riad (a traditional Moroccan guest house) near the famous Place Jemma el Fna, the central square, where you’ll see jugglers, snake charmers, Berber drummers and lots more. The square comes alive at night with small restaurants serving some of the best food in the world at very reasonable prices.

During the day we will be exploring the souk, visiting the shops and workshops of craftsmen in all trades, many still working in the traditional ways which haven’t changed for centuries.

We'll stop at interesting places to sketch and take photos or paint in tranquil settings like the gardens or palaces in and around the souk.

On the 4th. day we take a coach to Essaouira, a laidback town on the Atlantic coast where we’ll stay for 4 nights, sketching and painting around the pretty harbour and medina, finally returning to Marrakech for the flight out.

The price for the 9 nights is £900 which includes flight, airport transfers, accommodation with breakfast and guide.

We eat out for lunch and supper at the many small restaurants around the Jemma el Fna and the harbour at Essaouira.
