Marrakech holidays are a melting pot of culture. The famous 'Red City', Marrakech is known for its vibrant souks, magnificent mosques, towering minarets and pretty medinas - not to mention its circus-like squares filled with snake charmers, street food and story tellers.

Marrakech holidays boast spectacular shopping and gastronomic delights and the emerging spa scene means you can be pampered while enjoying a fabulous city break. Planning last minute holidays in Marrakech is easy thanks to the fabulous year-round climate, however, the best time to visit Marrakech are the months of spring (mid-March to May) and autumn (September to November). Avoid travelling to this city during the peak summer months as temperatures can soar up to 35°C.

The perfect fusion of modern and traditional influences makes it one of the most romantic holiday destinations in Morocco, so you're all set for faraway couples holidays, too. Head to the beautiful Atlas Mountains, embark on an exciting desert safari, soak up the atmosphere at the street stalls of Djemaa el-Fna (a UNESCO protected main square) and get lost in the winding streets of Plaza Uta el-Hammam during your Marrakech holidays.

Admire The Architecture

 

 

Admire The Architecture

From the intricate detail of Bahia Palace to the desolate ruins of El Badi Palace, Marrakech is a playground for history buffs. In the heart of Marrakech you'll find the intricate 14th-century structure of Ben Youssef Medersa. It is home to some of the most beautiful art and architecture in Marrakech. Stroll down the corridors and see stunning stuccowork, open-air balconies and colourful jade green marble tiles. Nature lovers can spend time in the magnificent 12th century Menara Gardens or the oriental inspired Majorelle Gardens.

Djemaa el-Fna

 

Djemaa el-Fna

As darkness descends over the Red City the evening entertainment lights it up and Marrakech transforms into a melting pot of sizzling mix of open-air restaurants, trendy bars and atmospheric cafés. Head to Djemaa el-Fna where this ancient square is filled with street performers playing live music and stalls with open grills. Grab a cocktail and relax at Kechmara's lively rooftop bar or live like a local and stop by Café Clock on a Sunday evening where you'll move to the sound of Moroccan gnawa musicians.

 
Stock Up On Spices

 

Stock Up On Spices

Surely one of the biggest tourist magnets and a must-visit is the city's vibrant souk. This colourful warren of shops and stalls is an intoxicating mix of spice sellers, stalls selling slippers, rugs, pashminas and beautiful handicrafts. Make your way through the middle of the medina and pick up a bargain or two as you haggle over handicrafts sitting pretty on the stalls.

 
Be Pampered in a Hammam

 

Be Pampered in a Hammam

Marrakech has an abundance of authentic hammams for those who want to truly relax. Soothe, scrub and sweat away your troubles in one of these tempting traditional baths. Hammam Dar el-Bacha is not only the city's largest but also the public hammam of choice for women. Heritage Spa is a family friendly hammam that offers a wide variety of weird and wonderful treatments including jet lag remedies for tired travellers. If you prefer private treatments, Les Bains de Marrakech is popular with locals and tourists alike. Many of the larger hotels also offer great treatments.

 
History & Culture

 

History & Culture

Marrakech boasts some of the most mystifying and interesting day trips of any destination in Europe. From desert treks to hidden palaces and camel rides to nights under the stars in the Atlas mountains, visitors are spoilt for choice. First on the list, Ait Benhaddou is a ksbar located in the high Atlas mountains and shared or private day trips leave from Marrakech every day. Back in the city, look at the work of contemporary Moroccan artists at David Bloch Gallery, Galerie Re’ or Dar Cherifa or visit YSL’s Love Gallerie or Maison de La Photographie.

 
Shopping in Marrakech

 

Shopping in Marrakech

From swamped souks to cool boutiques, Marrakech is one of the most exciting places in the world to go on a little shopping spree. The Medina is the biggest draw for shoppers, and an intoxicating experience like no other. Away from the bustle of the markets, many of the city's shops showcase creative designs and French-inspired clothing and accessories, thanks to the city's rather cool connection to Yves Saint Laurent - the cult designer owned an electric-blue villa and its verdant gardens, Jardin Majorelle, is open to the public. At boutiques like Art/C, Akbar Delights, Lalla and Marrakshi Life, you can shop for some innovative designs, robes, handbags, shoes and exquisite embroidery.

 
Explore the Atlas Mountains

 

Explore the Atlas Mountains

The breathtaking Atlas mountains sit pretty on Marrakech’s doorstep and if you're a lover of the great outdoors a day trip here is highly recommended. Embark on a walking tour across the Atlas mountains, explore the surrounding ancient villages and swim in the natural pools where you can feel the spray of the Ida Ouatane waterfall. If you're feeling adventurous, experience a day in the life of a native Berber and stay the night in the middle of the desert – the stars are incredible!

 
Food & Drink

 

 

Food & Drink

Moroccan food is packed full of flavour and dining here – from the street stalls to magnificent rooftop restaurants – is a real experience. The city has options for every budget. A melting pot of influences, you'll find Arabian, French and European inspired dishes in the mix. Step foot into some of the city's famous restaurants including Bo-Zin, Café Arabe, Al Fassia and Gastro MK to sample some of their delicious local dishes. Treat your tastebuds to Moroccan fish pastille, zingy zaalouk soups and flavoursome tagines.
