A visit to Marrakesh is an experience that stimulates all your senses.
Perhaps the most famous and captivating of its cities is Morocco, located in North Africa; a vibrant destination of colours, aromas, sounds, and flavours, where musicians, sellers of different wares, magicians and artists of all kinds come together. Marrakesh’s large, buzzing main square, Jemaa El Fna, is a must particularly striking at sunset. From there, explore the medina quarter, going down one of the many narrow streets that wind through the bazaar.
The Amazigh heritage of the ancient imperial city of Marrakesh is reflected in the stunning buildings in the heart of this incredible city. Marvel at the breath-taking views as you walk along the high city walls that surround the medina. From here, sip mint tea on the terrace of a riad or a café, enjoy the wonderful view over the roofs, against the backdrop of the Atlas Mountains in the distance.
Now you’ve experienced the aromas and sounds of the old town, visit some of the city’s unmissable attractions, like the Museum of Moroccan Art, the lush Jardin Majorelle or Maison Tiskiwin. Pamper yourself in a hammam in between one tour and another, and sample Moroccan street food, before spending the night in a splendid riad.
Marrakesh is just two hours from the Atlantic Ocean and 60 km from the peaks of the High Atlas Mountains. The weather is warm in spring and autumn, with temperatures rising in the summer, and extreme differences between night and day in the winter owing to the proximity to the mountains. No matter the time of year you visit, Marrakesh will leave you wanting more as you lose yourself in the unforgettable experiences it has to offer!
