Your Itinerary

 
Day 1 - Arrive in Marrakech: Arriving in Marrakech we head to our hotel, quickly drop off our bags. For dinner we decide to eat at Yacout Restaurant in the Medina with its colourful lanterns. After some gorgeous Moroccan food its back to the hotel. A great evening but just a taste of what is to come.
 
Day 2 - Bustling Old City & Souk: After breakfast we are off to explore the Old City. Starting in the historical quarter we walk past snake charmers and visit food markets and artisan workshops. We visit the medieval school and Museum of Marrakech before having lunch in the Medina. Next it’s into the covered souk, getting lost but discovering market stalls selling jewellery and dyed leather. With bags of shopping we sit in Djemaa El Fna Square. We grab dinner from a local street vendor and enjoy the ambience.
 
Day 3 - Atlas Mountains & Berber Villages: Today it’s up the Atlas Mountains. We drive across some stunning valleys to the village of Imlil. Take a short hike to a Berber village where we meet the local Berber people and a fascinating insight into their culture and customs. In particular the local people show us how to make couscous before we enjoy a traditional lunch. In the evening we can’t pass up the opportunity to return to at Djemaa El Fna Square to try some more street food.
 
Day 4 - Time to head home: After breakfast, we head straight to the airport to board the flight home.

About MARRAKECH HOLIDAYS

The imperial city of Marrakech has been through many reinventions since it was founded in 1062, however it has never strayed far from its roots of being a significant and important trading post in North Africa. With its maze of covered market stalls, streets lined with snake charmers and roads filled with donkey carts, Marrakech will always provide you with something to see, do or buy. The silverware and textile stalls are some of the best of the world. With fabulous and exotic gardens and vibrant neighbourhoods, Marrakech is best known for Djemaa El Fna Square, the largest souk in Morocco and one of the busiest squares in Africa. There is much more to explore however, from the ornate tombs and towering minarets, to the large palaces and ramparts.


When To Go

Morocco’s Climate tends to see more rain than its neighbours despite it being so close to the Sahara Sands, the further South of Morocco the hotter and drier the weather becomes. Its coastline is located on the borders of the Mediterranean and Atlantic so during December and January the Southern Desert becomes a lot colder at night, November to March provides plenty of rain for the coast. The best time to visit Morocco is during the summer season when rainfall is minimal and Mountain temperatures remain cool.
