Tangier Ibn Batouta Airport Car Rental | Car Hire in Tangier Ibn Batouta Airport
The Medina (Old City) is one of the attractions of this city with the Petit Soco as its center. The Kasbah is where the sultan once lived but is in ruins now. You can visit the Kasbah Museum which has an amazing number of exhibits of Morocco’s history. Renting a car here is a great way of exploring the beautiful countryside.
Tangier used to have a fabulous nightlife but today it is more well-known for its culture, its art and its fabulous landscapes. Being so close to Spain, just 14 miles away and easily accessible by ferry, there are many people arriving in the city on day trips. These can be native Spaniards for holiday makers staying in the south of Spain who are looking to explore a little further. All visitors to Tangier will find they can get around easily with the aid of car rental. There are so many sights to see and especially if you are in the city for a short time, you will want to see as much as possible. Car hire therefore is essential.
Visit the large market known as The Grand Socco. It is the hub of most of the daytime activity in Tangiers. Nowadays it is much less of a market place and more of a meeting place. There are cafés where you can sit out and watch the rest of the city go about their business.
The Kasbah stands overlooking the town from a hill. It offers superb views of the Straits of Gibraltar, over to Spain and of the port of Tangier. The well preserved fortifications date back to the 17th century, these days it is a museum. Due to the excellent unobstructed views this is a fabulous spot to catch the morning sunrise, and also the evening sunset.
The Old Medina can easily be reached using car rental services. Although many of the Moroccan medinas are located inland, Tangiers is one of few places on the coast to have one.
La Grotte d'Hercules or the Caves of Hercules are just a short drive out of Tangiers and are well worth a visit. The caves are reported to be the resting place of Hercules after he finished his 12 labours. Hercules was also said to have founded Tangiers and with one blow of his sword carved out the Straits of Gibraltar. Putting aside the Romanticised myth of the area, the caves are thought to have once been the home to an ancient civilisation. This is due to the fact remnants of bone have been the found there, and also flint for tool making.
No trip to the region would be complete without a shopping experience to a souk. Barter for a bargain and bring back plenty of goodies and gifts in your hire car. Car rental makes holiday shopping trips so easy.
