This is off the usual path, with few tourists and a pleasant warm winter temperature. You will have a very authentic experience here, as well as a peaceful atmosphere with different views. The two souks are hassle-free and packed with intriguing things at reasonable costs. Jewelers and rugs are particularly fantastic values.
The town's ramparts are six kilometers long and have multiple preserved gates, all of which may be seen from a horse drawn carriage trip. You spend the night at a traditional Riad surrounded by the Atlas Mountains.

After lunch in the hamlet, you can visit the Kasbah and climb to the top to see the panorama. The Atlas Film Studios will be visited in the afternoon. Several Hollywood blockbusters were filmed here, and the sets are generally still in place (Gladiator, Kingdom of Heaven, Asterix and Obelix, Game of Thrones).
