Cheap flights to Marrakech
Atmospheric and seemingly untouched by modern life, Marrakech is an exotic city that never ceases to amaze tourists with its array of medieval wonders.
A holiday to Marrakech is a pretty surreal experience. Founded nearly one thousand years ago, not much has changed in the ‘Red City’ as it is known thanks to the pink hue of its city walls. You’ll still find the squares of the ancient medina full of snake charmers, fortunetellers and acrobats.
Marrakech is a city that conjures up a world of medieval pleasures and is the perfect holiday destination for people looking for the different and the extraordinary.
Within its temporary location in the El Badi Palace, the newly opened Marrakech Museum of Photography and Visual Arts presents an image of North African culture that's vibrant and complex (El Badi Palace, Place des Ferblantiers, mmpva.org).
One of Marrakech's top destinations for contemporary art, the Matisse Art Gallery's main objective is to showcase Moroccan art. From carvings to oil paintings, from established artists to up-and-comers, it perfectly captures the country's rich creativity (61 Rue Yougoslavie, 43 Passage Ghandouri, matisse-art-gallery.com).
Adventurous travellers should venture to Kasbah Du Toubkal, a remote retreat located in the Atlas Mountains. The luxury hotel offers trekking packages that introduce visitors to views of the tallest mountain in North Africa, Jbel Toubkal (Toubkal National Park, Imlil, kasbahtoubkal.com).
Just six miles outside of the city centre, the Beldi Country Club is an oasis of calm, with acres of flowering rose bushes, olive trees, and lily ponds. Visit the spa for an indulgent hammam followed by a signature spa treatment, before a leisurely lunch at the poolside restaurant (Km 6, Route de Barrage, beldicountryclub.com).
