Top Marrakesh Attractions | Private Jet Charter to Marrakesh

Marrakesh is the jewel in Morocco’s crown. This former imperial city in the west of the country offers guests enchanting gardens, royal palaces and mosques, and of course the famous medina and its vibrant souks. In addition, Marrakesh has a superb climate, mouth-watering cuisine and luxury hotels.

Here are some top reasons to book your private jet charter to Morocco today.

Koutoubia Mosque

The sound of the muezzin calling the faithful to prayer, five times a day from this minaret, is one of the defining sounds of Marrakesh. Gaze up at the 12th-century, 70m-high tower and you could be back in the Middle Ages. The tower is adorned with four copper globes, and has pink stone walls decorated with floral motifs and other carvings. Located near Jemaa el-Fnaa Square, Koutoubia Mosque is one of the world’s largest mosques with a floor area of 58,000sq ft. It’s not open to non-Muslims but you can walk in the adjacent gardens with its lake and olive trees.

Jemaa el-Fnaa Square

Popular with both tourists and locals. The massive square comes alive towards dusk when it becomes the place to eat, chat, meet up with friends and socialise. There are many more Moroccans at the market than tourists and it’s a slice of life that hasn’t changed for centuries. Enjoy the unforgettable sights, sounds and flavours.

Marrakesh Souks

The souks of Marrakesh are an Aladdin’s cave of craftwork, jewellery, carpets, household goods, spices, and so much more. They can appear overwhelming to first-time visitors, in which case you could always hire a guide, but it’s easily navigable. Start on the long-covered Rue Souk Smarine and you’ll see it splits into two lanes: Souk el Kebir and Souk el Attarin. At intervals, you’ll find the squares and alleyways where hawkers not only sell, but also create their artwork. Best visiting times are early: 6.30am to 8am and again between 4pm and 5pm.

Jardin Majorelle

French painter Jacques Majorelle dedicated 40 years to the creation of this outstanding 2.5-acre landscaped botanical garden in the centre of Marrakesh. In 1980, the gardens were about to be sold to developers, which is when French fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent and his partner Pierre Bergé bought the garden and restored it to its current splendour. Majorelle’s studio has been transformed into a museum of Berber culture; a tranquil escape from the madness of the Medina.
