Taxi in the city

Taxis are the very cheap and practical option to move around. Look for the numerous beige-coloured small ones (the so-called bigger vehicles are more expensive). A 30 MAD fare (about 2,6 euros) should get you covered. Ask for the counter and expect a little bargaining.

Good to know

The currency of Morocco is the dirham. Divide by about 11 to obtain the amount in Euros, 12 for Pounds and 9 for Dollars

Sleep, etc.

Stay in Gueliz or in the Medina

To choose your hotel or Airbnb: We recommend you go for either Gueliz, Marrakech central and trendy area with a wide range of services and entertainment close or the Medina if you are up to stay in a riad. Bear in mind that the medina is an urban ensemble which you must learn to navigate, complete with charming and intricates streets.

Either way, you will have to reach the venue using shuttle or taxis. But fear not, more info will come on this topic which will make the experience smooth. You will be all set!
