Perhaps one of the best ways to get a taste of Morocco is to start by exploring "Morocco City" as early travellers called Marrakech or the "Red City" as it is known now. To see some of the most interesting sights in Marrakech a rent a car would be a valuable asset. Although traffic can be congested, a car rental is especialy useful if visitors intend to visit mountains or the desert. In particular the Ourika Valley is about a 45-minute drive southeast of Marrakech, and in addition to seeing orchards of almond and cherry trees, one can enjoy cascading waterfalls. Closer to town there are several attractions worth taking some time to explore with your car rental including Unesco World Heritage Site Djemaa el-Fna and the Jardin Majorelle, which was at one time owned by Yves Saint Laurent. Using your rent a car from SIXT provides endless opportunities for an optimal vacation experience in Marrakech.
