Marrakech City Breaks
If you’re looking for an alternative to European city breaks, may we at Co-operative Travel suggest Marrakech? A uniquely historic and exotic destination, last minute Marrakech city breaks are richly infused with Moroccan spice, with undertones of continental glamour; a heady adventure for all.
Marrakech city breaks offer an exotic cultural experience, which captivates your senses from the moment you arrive. Marrakech package city breaks are available in a range of boutique hotels and guest houses, all very family focussed. Couples looking for romantic city breaks should look for deals in traditional riads. With a multitude of authentic features, they are romantic, luxurious and cheap.
With a minimum of 7 hours sunshine even in winter, Marrakech is a year-round destination. In the shadow of the Atlas mountains, the city is at its hottest and driest in the summer months, with a high level of humidity. The rest of the year it is pleasantly warm with occasional showers (which are unlikely on short weekend breaks). The best time to book bargain city breaks to Marrakech is late spring and autumn. In winter, cheap weekend breaks are widely available, but be aware that while the days are still warm, the nights are extremely cold.
All cheap Marrakech city breaks should include the Djemma el Fna – one of the most famous town squares in Africa. By day it’s a busy arena populated by dancers, acrobats, snake charmers and fire eaters. By night, it bustles with food stalls, the air infused with a thousand exotic spices. On Marrakech package city breaks, make sure also to visit the ancient walled medina, with its labyrinth of streets and colourful souks.
You will also find historic and beautiful mosques, palaces and other heritage buildings in Marrakech, including Ben Youssef Medrassa, Koutoubia Mosque, El Badi Palace, the Saadian Tombs and the City Walls. Marrakech also has many lush fragrant green spaces, including Majorelle Gardens, home to the Museum of Islamic Art. At Co-operative Travel we offer the widest choice of bargain city breaks to Marrakech
