You won't run out of things to do in Marrakech, a city where you can spend days exploring grandiose palaces and mosques, photogenic gardens, sacred tombs, and traditional mansions that evoke a bygone era.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Marrakech: Sur Les Pentes du Toubkal (in Tahanaout), Le Paradis du Safran (in Ourika) and Mount Toubkal (in Imlil). There's much more to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Jardin Majorelle, get to know the fascinating history of Menara Gardens and Pavilion, indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, and steep yourself in history at Koutoubia Mosque.

To see other places to visit, traveler tips, where to stay, and more tourist information, read our Marrakech vacation planner .

If you are flying in from Brunei, the closest major airport is Menara Airport. December in Marrakech sees daily highs of 24°C and lows of 7°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 5th (Sun) early enough to travel to Fes.
