Luxury Holidays to Marrakech
Known for it's hypnotic square, Djemaa el Fna, replete with all manor of wonderful sites, including snake charmers, fortune tellers, henna tattoo artists, musicians and food stalls and it's centrepiece is the 12th century Koutoubia Mosque.
The world famous labyrinthian jumble of alleyways that make up the Medina is where visitors enthusiastically barter with the stallholders over handwoven rugs, brightly coloured slippers, spices, and traditional Moroccan lanterns.
The fortified centuries old quarter of the city is home to artisan workshops and elaborate riads, but a local guide is recommended to help you navigate the alleyways and help with the bartering.
A complete contrast elsewhere in the city, where 21st century art, culture and lifestyle interweave and fashionistas, couples and groups of friends congregate in the trendy bars, cafes, restaurants and nightclubs.
Accommodation is wide ranging from intimate riads within the city walls, Sir Richard Branson's boutique hotel Kasbah Tamadot, La Mamounia where Winston Churchill stated 'it is one of the most beautiful places in the world' and the luxurious Royal Mansour.
