Marrakech Pocket Guide

Marrakech Pocket Guide
Marrakech is unique and will take your breath away. It is easily one of the most spectacular cities filled with vibrancy and an exhilaration of all senses.
Marrakech is an atmosphere, it is a state of mind, it is a play of lights and colors, it is bustle in the streets, it is the smell of argan, cous cous and mint.
In this pocket guide to Marrakech, we'll share how to explore and be delighted by all its majesty and wonder! 

Getting around Marrakech
In our opinion, the best way to get around Marrakech and outside the the city is surely by cab.
What's great about their drivers is that you can haggle prices with them and you can ask them to be your personal driver for the duration of your stay too! 

 

Where and what to eat in Marrakech
There is one thing we advise all travelers to Marrakech: If you're a "foodie", taste every dish of Moroccan cuisine! Do not be prejudiced, order every typical dish and be surprised by the spices, colors and cooking of each food.

Don't miss:
Yoyale cous cous, lemon chicken tajine with olives, and the Pastilla, a puff pastry pie with chicken, squab or squid inside and almond granules, cinnamon and sugar on the outside
Let's talk about costs: prices are always quite affordable compared to many other top destinations. For a 3 course menu, costs average  from 20 to 35 euros per person.
One of Our favorite restaurant in Marrakech is La Maison Arabe!
Where to stay in Marrakech
Here is one thing we are convinced of! You absolutely must stay in the Medina of Marrakech, inside a Riad.

Here is a list of our favorite Riads:
What to see in Marrakech and other information
Marrakech is a treasure chest of wealth, beauty, history...every corner will be a discovery, a surprise, an enchantment.
However, do not miss these places:
The souk: The typical Arab market where haggling before buying something is a must
Jeema el Fna Square: the chaotic town square where you will find Berber dancers, snake charmers and street vendors
Bahia Palace: considered a masterpiece of traditional Moroccan architecture.


Majorelle Gardens: This garden complex was designed by French artist Jacques Majorelle in 1931, during the colonial period.
The majorelle blue is very famous and even conquered Yves Saint Laurent who purchased it in 1980.

 How much does a coffee in the Piazzetta cost?

Sitting at the table costs around 5 euros, while for an alcoholic drink you spend around 15 euros.

 3) Take a Drink in the sky

From Piazza Vittoria in Anacapri, take the chairlift up to the summit of Monte Solaro, once at the top calmly enjoy the view, take lots of photos and maybe stop for a drink at the "La Canzone del Cielo" bar.

Descend on foot, following the signs for the Hermitage of Cetrella: a valley with a small church that was once a hermitage retreat.

 4) Enjoy the view

From the Piazzetta walk down to the Quisisana, feast your eyes on the glittering windows of the luxury boutiques and then turn the corner to find yourself immersed in the bright tranquility of Via Tragara.

The narrow street skirts the gardens of Capri's most beautiful villas and hotels with the sea shimmering beyond the jasmine and bougainvillea. Eventually you come to a small piazzata overlooking the Faraglioni. 

5) Watch the best Sunset

Where to see the sunset in Capri? One of the best spots is undoubtedly the lighthouse at Punta Carena.

Another jaw dropping spot is at the Lighthouse in Anacapri while enjoying an aperitivo at Lido il Faro!

 6) Have a special Dinner

How better to end a perfect day in Capri than with dinner at a restaurant with a panoramic view or typical atmosphere?

If this is your first time on Capri, don't forget to try the local specialties: ravioli capresi filled with marjoram and caciotta cheese and the chocolate and almond-based cake, Caprese.

 Our favorite restaurant is  Lo Zodiaco.

A truly unmissable restaurant in Capri is "Da Paolino" for a fantastic Italian dinner in the island's most famous and glamorous lemon grove!

An evening of dancing and fun in Capri that is unforgettable?

Then you have to go to a tavern, and the most famous is "Anema e core" where live music is played and dancing and singing to the rhythm of tarantella or the great classics of Neapolitan songs.

Scoring a FREE UPGRADE by dressing the part!

At Safe Travels Kit, we celebrate Travel in all its glory and style is something we take seriously too; after all, our Founder, Adriana Martone, is a Fashion exec!

Did you know that Travel and Leisure suggests picking your perfect ensemble and dressing stylish to score an upgrade?!

"Essentially, you can still be comfortable, but don't dress like you're going to the gym; think more casual workday chic."

One flight attendant told Who What Wear "When we fly, we have a strict dress code to follow. No jeans or trainers — so I always go for tight black trousers and a blazer or a dress. For men, chinos or trousers and a shirt are worn"

Inspired by travel looks and the chic and sophisticated looks from the Golden Age of Travel, here are a few of our favorites dating back to the 60's that may help get you Upgraded!
