Arriving in Marrakech, you’ll be treated to a feast of sights, sounds and smells as you wander through the city’s historic streets.

Chase the aroma of sweet mint tea to sample a true Moroccan delight, perfect any time of day.
For families, the modern resort of Agadir is ideal for a beachside break in the warm Moroccan sunshine. With water sports to try, boat trips to take and restaurants to visit, Agadir is a lively and vibrant place to stay without compromising on traditional Moroccan charm.
If you’re on the hunt for traditional culture and historic sights, the northern cities of Fez and Rabat are must-visits. Immerse yourself in the Moroccan way of life as you wander through the medinas, haggle at the souks and sweat it out at the hammam. Whether you want to explore ancient cities, rugged coastlines or the endless expanse of the Sahara, there’s a Morocco for everyone to fall in love with.
