little Marrakech with lunch from 8:20 am till 5 pm
Description : Excursion Tiout-Taroudant
The ancient red walled city of Taroudant is sometimes called “Little Marrakesh” but that description doesn’t do it justice. Hidden by magnificent red mud walls and the snowcapped peaks of the High Atlas beyond, Taroudant’s souk and squares have a mystical feeling. It is also a practical place and market town where Berbers trade the produce of the fertile Oued Souss plain. There are no unavoidable sites. Instead, the Medina is a place to stroll and linger. The two souqs is well worth a visit, more relaxed than Marrakech, but with an atmosphere of activity that is absent in Agadir. With the small little western Atlas explored, the Anti Atlas and the coast nearby, the city is a good base for trekking and activities. Just 65 km inside the airport of Al-Massira, it is a more atmospheric gathering point to / from the airport than Agadir.
