Temperature differences can be very significant in Marrakech. The best time to discover the city is in autumn and or spring because of the pleasant climate during these two seasons. In spring, the heat is not yet too hot (the thermometer can display 45 °C in août !) and the surrounding nature presents its most sumptuous aspect (in particular the Ourika valley and the region of the Ouzoud waterfalls). In autumn, the days are shorter, but the sun, still warm, offers a dazzling spectacle when it shines on the snow-covered peaks surrounding Marrakech. In winter, the city seems to be trapped in the icy snows of the High Atlas, but it is rare that the Tizi n'Test (Agadir road) and Tizi n'Tichka (Ouarzazate road) passes are closed - et the temperature stagnates around 18 °C. If you are cautious, it is better to make sure that the hotel heats up continuously, which is not always the case. It rains more in winter than in the other seasons but even this period remains very pleasant in Marrakech. Summer is often hot, and few places offer a little freshness, including in the medina. Due to the weather conditions, the high tourist season in Marrakech is from mid-September to mid-June but avoid school holidays for more tranquility and attractive prices. The low tourist season in Marrakech is from mid-June to mid-September, a period when it is stiflingly hot.
