As a great way to enjoy the freshness and tranquility of the morning, you'll start your Moroccan Dream tour at the enchanting and picturesque botanical Jardin Majorelle, formerly owned and designed by Yves Saint Laurent. The garden was created by an avid plant collector, and is today one of the most popular attractions in Marrakech, and it is for good reasons. In this refreshing oasis, you're going to wander in the midst of trees and exotic plants of dreamy origin, pools filled with water lilies and lotus flowers, and vividly colored earthen walls. Let yourself take a break from the frantic pace of the Red City and enjoy the delicate fragrance filling the air!
