Morocco Holidays and Marrakech City Breaks

Want to take a short break but fancy going somewhere a bit different to the normal European
destinations? Then why not try Morocco for a short city break? Morocco offers so much more than many sun destinations, and is perfect for a weekend getaway.

Marrakech is the second largest city in Morocco. It is a popular holiday destination with Europeans, as although it is in Africa, it is only a short flight away. Morocco is bursting with Arabic culture and charm, and is particularly evident in Marrakech.

Marrakech visitors are amazed by the city when they appear to be sent back in time. The streets are narrow, with hidden souks and souvenir shops. The bustling markets are full of herbs and spices and handmade crafts, including rugs and scarves. Marrakech has great examples of traditional architecture, adding a sense of mystery and beauty to the city.
Marrakech is home to many traditional carnivals, but also some more unusual events such as the Marrakech Salsa Festival and the Riad Art Expo.

The Moroccan city has a range of places to eat and drink, with small bars and restaurants offering traditional Moroccan food. Eat in the in-expensive cafes or up-market bistros. Accommodation in Marrakech varies from cheap guesthouses to exclusive hotels with beautiful pools. Cheap flights can be found right across to UK, directly to Marrakech. When it comes to visiting Marrakech, there's something to suit all pockets.
