Amizmiz is is a small town in Morocco approximately 55 kilometers south of Marrakesh. It lies at the foot of the High Atlas mountain range. The Marrakech region is an area influenced by east and west, by Africa and Europe. Marrakech is two pulsating cities in one, where modern culture sits just the other side of 11th-century walls. And all this endearing commotion is surrounded by quiet Berber villages.

Over a million people live in Marrakech and Djemaa-el-Fna, the main square, is always alive with acrobats, snake charmers, dancers, and musicians. You may buy a water to quench your thirst or an ancient Berber potion to improve your relationship or if shopping is your thing, then you may go north into the souks, where a labyrinth of covered market streets is teeming with lively sellers and lost shoppers. Bartering on price over a mint tea is not uncommon.
And if you get good at the haggle, you may grab a bargain on shoes, bags, lamps, rugs, silk, cotton, pottery, and plates. If you prefer your prices fixed and your shopping a little more boutique, then leave the charms of the old city for the new town, where you will find casinos, art galleries, and plenty of places to enjoy dinner and drinks. Alternatively, you may head back to the main square after sunset as many food stalls open, turning Djemaa el-Fna it into a massive open-air restaurant.
