Morocco – Medina of Marrakesh

Few cities capture the imagination quite like Marrakech. A blend of Berber, Arabic and French influences give the UNESCO World Heritage site a timeless appeal. With the beautiful frenzy of the Medina, ornate Arabic architecture and one of the world’s greatest cuisines it’s no surprise that more people are traveling to Marrakech now more than ever. Whether you spell it Marrakech or Marrakesh (both are acceptable), a visit to Morocco’s Red City is surely an experience you will  never forget. Marrakech can be overwhelming to say the least, with a dizzying array of sights, smells and tastes providing a sensory overload; but armed with these tips you can make your first trip to Marrakech one to remember.

1.Airport/Transportation

Flights to Marrakech arrive at Menara Airport (RAK). A valid passport is required for entry into Morocco, currently for Americans visas are not required for visits less than 90 days (check the State Department website for the latest requirements).

Taxis are available but best to arrange transportation with your hotel.
