Marrakesh in detail

When to go and weather

Winter (December to February) has plenty of blue skies but can be extremely chilly at night. Riad rates go up between 20 December and 6 January.

Spring (March to May) is a great time for medina escapades with temperatures hovering around 30°C. Try to avoid Easter holidays when prices jump.

Summer (June to August) brings scorching heat along with the Festival of Popular Arts.

Autumn (September to November) is ideal for non-sweaty souq exploring and sightseeing. Remember your umbrella in November, Marrakesh's wettest month.
