The Marrakech/Essaouira region
The Red City is located in the south-east of Morocco, and is the most visited city of this North African country.
Marrakech is a fascinating city with a great history represented by the Koutoubia, Madrasa Ben Youssef and the Medina. The city is divided into the old quarter, the Medina, and the ville nouvelle built by the French during the colonial period.
The weather is warm from March onwards and reaches its peak during July-August after which the temperature steadily cools.
Experience one of the Thousand and One Nights in the souks of Marrakesh and delight, nearby, in the magical atmosphere of the Jama al Fana where you can enjoy a barbecue or revel in the party atmosphere. Don't forget to visit the 500 year old Madrasa Bin Yusuf, the Saadian Tombs or the famous Kutaibiyya Mosque overlooking the Medina. Lastly, if you get the opprortunity, have a ride through the city in a horse carriage.
