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.
The sweltering summer heat has finally lifted off the city in October so this is a great time to discover Marrakech by bike. AXS Cycling (www.argansports.com) offer a Marrakech Tasting Tour which explores the medina's labyrinth alleyways by bike while stopping off to sample local delicacies from street stalls along the way.
Popcorn at the ready. Running through the 2 to 10 December, the annual Festival International du Film de Marrakech brings the best of new North African and international arthouse cinema to the Red City as well as classic crowd-pleaser movies. Head to Djemaa el-Fna to catch free open-air cinema in the medina's main square.
It's just two and a half hours from Marrakech to the fishing port of Essaouira, widely regarded as the jewel of the Moroccan coastline. Guests can explore the busy marina before heading to the vineyards in the surrounding Val d'Argan countryside. Travel by bus or book a private tour to make the most of the experience.
