Located 200 km (125 mi) west of Marrakesh, Essaouira Airport can be reached in about 2 hours and 50 minutes.
    • Casablanca Airport: By far the busiest in the country, Casablanca Airport is the main hub of the national carrier Royal Air Maroc. Also known as Mohamed V Airport after the Moroccan monarch, it serves flights to destinations in North and Sub-Saharan Africa, Europe, the Middle East, East Asia, and North America. Located 220 km (137 mi) northwest of Marrakesh, the airport can be reached in 2 hours and 20 minutes.

Agadir Airport is 260 km (160 mi) southwest of Marrakesh and takes three hours to reach.

    Useful city facts

    • Marrakesh enjoys a hot semi-arid climate. Summers are very dry and hot, with temperature often exceeding even 35 °C  (95 °F). The winters, on the other hand, can get quite wet cool, especially in the months of December and January.
    • Together with neighboring Safi and a number of other provinces, Marrakesh makes up the Marrakesh-Safi Region that is home to more than 4.5 million people.

    Top destinations and activities

    1. Djemaa el-Fnaa. Perhaps the most famous bazaar in the whole Arab World, Djemaa el-Fnaa is, for many, the number one attraction in the whole of Morocco. Traditional singers and drummers, snake-charmers, and storytellers will fight for your attention, tattoo artists will be ready to give you a new henna right on the street, and local craftsmen will proudly show their carpets, lamps, and jewellery. It’s a place that’s not to be missed.
    2. Majorelle Gardens and the Berber Museum. Should you ever go tired of the crazy energy of Djemaa el-Fnaa, beautiful Majorelle Gardens that are famous for their wide variety of cactus species are a place for a walk, picnic, and long relaxed conversations with new-made friends. Next to the gardens you’ll find the Berber Museum where you can learn more about the traditions and culture of the native inhabitants of Marrakesh.
    3. Bahia Palace. Although relatively young - it was built only in the 19th century - Bahia Palace is arguably one of the most unique buildings in Marrakesh. Surrounded by gardens of banana flowers and other plants and full of beautiful rooms and courtyards, it is a perfect place to explore and relax in.

    Traffic and parking tips

    • Unless specifically indicated otherwise, the speed limits are 120 km/h on motorways (autoroutes), 100 km/h on roads outside urban cities that are not motorways, and 60 km/h within populated areas.
    • Even inside some big cities, and in the most smaller towns and villages, there are no special lanes for cyclists or sometimes even pavements for pedestrians. In those cases, you’ll be sharing a road with them, so be extra careful.
    • Road signs are written in both Arabic and French. If you don’t know either of these languages, it’s good to learn at least the main terms in one of them before renting a car.
    • The legal alcohol limit is 0.00% for both experienced and novice drivers. Drunk driving can lead to large fines and even jail time or deportation.
    • The insurance and car documentation needs to be in the car whenever you’re driving.
    • If you’re the driver, you need to have your passport or ID card with you at all times.
    • The nation-wide emergency police number is 19 and the nation-wide ambulance and fire safety department number is 15.

    Toll roads

    A toll needs to be paid for using most of Morocco’s motorways or autoroutes. All of the toll roads in Morocco are administered by the state-owned company Autoroutes du Maroc (ADM). 

    Morocco uses a “closed system” for its toll roads, meaning that there is a toll booth both at the entrance and the exit of the toll road. You pay either by cash or by credit card (although some toll points might only accept cash so it’s good to have some available at all times). Make sure to keep any proof that you have paid for the toll road as police checks are frequent and fines can be hefty. The prices for using the toll roads are generally quite low.

    Most of the toll roads connect the largest cities of the country. Oftentimes you can opt to use regional roads instead - while traveling along those will be much slower, the views are usually much more scenic.

    Ideas for a day-trip

    • Amizmiz. Located in the nearby High Atlas Mountains, the small town of Amizmiz hosts one of the largest souks in the region every Tuesday, but even if you come on another day, it is still a great place to appreciate the local atmosphere, meet the locals, and enjoy the views of the nearby peaks.
    • Ourika Valley. Just 40 minutes drive from Marrakesh, beautiful Ourika Valley has become a bit touristy during the last few years, but should still be on anyone’s list thanks to its waterfalls, long hiking paths, and different Argan oil products made by local women.
    • Oukaimeden. Located more than 3000 meters (9840 feet) above the sea level, Oukaimeden is arguably the best ski resort in the whole North Africa. Very near is Jebel Toubkal, the highest peak in the Atlas Mountains.

    Most popular rental types and cars

    The most popular rental car types in Morocco are Economy, Mini, and Intermediate. Most national highways are in great shape and fit for vehicle of any size, but if you plan to drive in the nearby Atlas Mountains, getting a 4x4 vehicle can be a good idea. The most popular rental cars in Morocco are the Hyundai i10, the Dacia Logan, and the Renault Clio.

    Further destinations

    • Essaouira. This charming beach city is just three hours drive west of Marrakesh. Local street performers will claim to be sons of Jimi Hendrix (who once indeed favored visiting the place) while cooks of local seafood will leave you breathless. 
    • Taghazout. A serene beach town and a surfer’s paradise, cozy Taghazout (near the much larger city of Agadir) offers the possibility to hit the waves year-round. From here, it’s also easy to visit the nearby Paradise Valley with its gorges and waterfalls.
    • Ouarzazate. Located east of Marrakesh and high in the mountains, Ouarzazate is similar to Marrakesh in some ways, but is more tranquil and traditional. The dry desert landscapes that surround it will make you feel like you’re on another planet.

    driving in Marrakesh is chaotic but once you get used to the traffic, its fun, watch out for bumps on the road, it damages the bottom of the car. All is good and very affordable, its worth the money

    Interstates are good as in West Europe or even better and not many cars, safe to drive at any time of day or night, tolls are cheap. I drove from Marrakesh to Casablanca, Riyadh, Fez, Chefchaouen, Tangier and back to Marrakesh. Driving in cities can be a bit hectic, and not everyone follows traffic rules, but still was OK.

    Marrakesh was quite interesting, but the motorbikes and push bikes in the souks made life dangerous and anxious. They need to be banned. The drivers are mostly crazy. Outside was beautiful, serene. Tisseldei and generally the high Atlas mts were stunning.

    Driving in and around Marrakech is tricky even with lots of regional driving experience. Traffic is heavy, driving is very erratic and road signals and practices are not clear. Driving in the rural and mountain areas is much easier as there is limited traffic though some of the roads are poor.

    No need to rent GPS, it is hard to find the location! Don’t know what happen, the Google map only shows the preview format in Morocco! Instead, I would recommend to use the app called “WAZE”. It’s free, easy to control and very user friendly.

    Marrakech is a mess with a car, drivers are totally crazy. I'd recommend heading out asap - go for the mountains - tizin Tichka, ait benhadou, ourzazate, merzouga, than through desert to agadir, Essaouira and back to Marrakech. 1700km, but so worth it.
