A magical land of marketplaces, mountains, and mosques

Tucked away in western Morocco, Marrakesh offers up a majestic landscape, where the minarets of mosques dominate the skyline and the snow-capped peaks of the Atlas Mountains serve as a dramatic backdrop. Leave the comfort of your Marrakesh vacation rental and get lost in the labyrinth located behind the fortified city's 12th-century walls, where bazaars feature vendors peddling everything from textiles and pottery to jewelry and spices. Wander aimlessly through Marrakesh's maze of alleyways and eventually you'll stumble upon a whole new world of treasures, including renowned museums, lavish palaces, and lush gardens.

Shop till you drop, then have fun at the festival

Think you drive a mean bargain? Put your haggling skills to the test at 1 of the city's many souks, or bazaars, where merchants sell items, from leather goods to local foods. After an afternoon of bartering, enjoy a peaceful stroll through the 12th-century Menara Gardens, home to lakes, orchards, and olive groves. If you book a Marrakesh vacation rental in July, you'll experience the city during its busy festival season, which includes the National Folklore Festival and the Marrakesh Festival of Popular Arts, the latter of which highlights famous Moroccan artists, including renowned dancers, musicians, and actors.

Fall under the spell of snake charmers and sultans

Behind the fortified walls of the city lies Jemaa el-Fnaa, a beloved African square known as a hub of activity. Spend the day people-watching as street performers, from snake charmers to acrobats and magicians to musicians, entertain both locals and travelers alike. If you're in the market for more high-brow attractions, the Museum of Marrakesh offers art exhibits on the rich history of modern and traditional Moroccan cultures. History buffs should also make time to visit El Badi Palace, the ruins of a 16th-century sultan's palace, and the 12th-century Koutoubia Mosque, the largest one in the city.

A North African forecast—sunny skies and soaring mercury

You may find it difficult to leave the comfort of your Marrakesh vacation rental during summers filled with scorching, dry heat and daytime highs that can exceed 100 degrees. Things start to cool off in the autumn as temps dip into 60s. Just remember to pack your umbrella if you're visiting in November, Marrakesh's wettest month. Winter brings mild daytime temperatures, averaging around 54 degrees, but clear skies can make 40-degree evenings feel particularly biting. Spring offers mild temperatures, with highs ranging from the mid-70s to the low 80s.

Ain't no mountain high enough, ain't no valley low enough

Home to a diverse landscape, Marrakesh offers something for everyone. If you enjoy peaceful pockets of green space hidden away inside bustling metropolises, Marrakesh features numerous gardens. Spend your day sauntering through lush grounds filled with palm trees, succulents, olive groves, and orchards dotted with orange, fig, and pomegranate trees. Nestled between the High Atlas Mountains and a vast desert landscape, the Ourika River Valley lies just 19 miles south of Marrakesh. The region is popular with daytrippers who wish to visit quaint desert villages or tackle foothill hiking trails lined with waterfalls.
