Cairo Flights Guide
Step back to the time of the Arabian Nights when you visit magical Marrakech, Morocco's magical ancient city with its maze of narrow streets, snake charmers, bustling bazaars, ancient sites and distinctive architecture. The city was once a caravan trading post, and it has somehow managed to keep that iconic charm as well as its ancient, traditional character.
Whether you love food or shopping, or both, Marrakech is a treasure trove of taste sensations, colour and magic. With its ancient sites and olde worlde atmosphere, history is everywhere around you, as you stroll through its ancient alleyways, souks and squares.
Marrakech is the most popular of Morocco's three Imperial Cities, and at its centre is the Djemaa el-Fna, a square with a carnival atmosphere. In complete contrast, modern Marrakesch, known as Ville Nouvelle, is full of luxurious hotels, busy streets and commercial enterprises.
The city is really ancient - it was originally founded in 1062, and Cordoban architects designed a number of palaces, baths and mosques as well as a subterranean water system. For a real sense of adventure, explore Marrakech in a horse-drawn carriage. And when you're ready for some retail therapy, visit its souks on foot, to examine various handicrafts, leatherwear, slippers, perfumes and other souvenirs. And don't forget to bargain. You're sure to pick up some excellent buys.
