On the ancient Berber language, Marrakech is called "Land of God." It is unclear whether this is actually a paradise in the world, given the strongest local heat in the summer, but it is absolutely unique in its style. Marrakech is Morocco's third largest city after Casablanca and Fez. It is located at the foot of the Atlas Mountains and a few hours from the foot of the Sahara Desert.
Marrakech Airport is mainly for tourists. It is easiest to see the crowd here on weekends and holidays. More than half of all flights arriving here are European low-cost airlines. And most of them at the same time performs the company Ryanair.
In general, Marrakech-Menara is a very beautiful and modern airport. It looks like an openwork palace. Moreover, inside it looks like any modern and high-tech building. Moreover, the airport really contrasts strongly with historical and even ancient Marrakesh. But at the same time, they could not get rid of typical problems at the airport. Here, as in many others, there are huge lines at the customs control. And local staff can be rude and not informative enough. General cleanliness, various amenities and shops with unusual souvenirs will help to smooth out the impression.
The airport is very close to the center which is only 6 km from the main square of Jamaa el Fna. The trip will take you only 15-20 minutes. Or you can walk at all. However, you should be careful of the sweltering heat, so it’s better to use transport.
Approximately every half hour, an L19 bus leaves Menara Airport. You can board it from 6 am to midnight. A one-way trip will cost you only $ 3, and you can buy a ticket directly from the bus driver. On the way, the bus makes several stops, so you will have the opportunity to get to the nearest hotel to the booked.
Marrakech is divided into two separate parts: Medina, a historic city, and a new European modern area called Guélize or Ville Nouvel. Medina is a real labyrinth of narrow aisles and small shops full of delicious souvenirs. But in Gueliz, on the contrary, it is full of wide areas, modern restaurants and shops of famous world brands.
Jemaa el Fna is the place where the heart of Marrakesh beats. During the day, snake charmers, artists who paint henna and various other artists are buzzing in the square, and at night countless stalls with traditional lamb dishes and fresh orange juice, as well as other culinary delights open. This is the main place for tourists to help you quickly understand the features of Marrakech.
Jardin Majorelle is one of the most popular destinations in Morocco, created by French artist Jacques Majorelle, who spent 40 years investing his passion and creativity in this magical garden. Jardin Majorelle is ideal for those who want a break from the busy city. It is full of charming narrow paths, calm streams and more than 300 species of amazing plants.
