If you’ve never been to Marrakech, your first impression might be that the city has a split personality. The old city centre, known as the Medina to locals, is full of narrow intertwining passageways, opulent private palaces and those famous open-air markets full of sounds, scents and sights that haven’t changed much in thousands of years.
Just as you think you must’ve walked into a time warp, you’ll find your way to Gueliz, home to modern art galleries, classy restaurants and malls. Really, this city has it all. Modernity and history; Atlas Mountain terrain and dry desert adventures; luxurious comforts and new experiences. And they’re all just a ride away with one of Wotif’s Marrakech car hire options.
Let’s be honest. You’re here for the markets, right? We don’t blame you. From spices and tea pots to flowing kaftans, the souks are where you can find it all. Hop into your Marrakech car rental and then head to Djemaa El-Fna, a square where you can find belly dancers, storytellers, musicians and—the people you’ve been dying to see—snake charmers.
When you’re ready for a new kind of awe, head to the ornate El Bahia Palace, the Dar Si Saïd Museum or the El Badi Palace ruins. With the money you save on Wotif’s Marrakech holiday packages, you can experience it all.
Ready to hit the slopes or just hike around? Oukaimeden, just 78km south, is a popular local ski destination in the winter and the perfect place to get away from the crowds in the summer. And just 250km north is Morocco’s most famous city, Casablanca, live and in colour.
Want to hit the beach? Book car hire in Marrakech and find your way to the port city of Agadir, just a 250km drive to the south.
You probably don’t need any more convincing—we can smell the exotic spices already. Why not save some cash along the way? Book with Wotif for the best deals around so you can spend more on brightly-coloured treasures in Marrakech. We can’t wait to see what you find!
