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.
With Marrakech's temperatures at their mildest, January is the city's annual marathon time so why not limber up and join the runners on the perfectly flat route from the walled medina out to the palm groves and back again.
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.
March is the perfect time for white water rafting in Morocco. Local company Morocco Adventure & Rafting (www.rafting.ma) runs highly recommendable half-day trips (which suit absolute beginners as well as more experienced rafters) from Marrakech to the rapids along the Ourika River.
