It was a much bigger and more crowded Medina than in Rabat. We also learnt about the Fes leather and how they were made. The Medina also had a lot of different entries (Bab) leading to different areas of the old town. There are also a lot of nice cafes with good view of the whole Medina and the nearby... More

Just walking around in Medina is a great experience. A tour guide is recommended though in order to discover places that only locals know. Also, it's a good way of keeping away people that you would like to avoid...

Medina means " city " in arabic so this was basically the city of Fez before it expanded outside the walls and it's a masterpiece.

Don't miss to visit Fès if you want to see the tipical Medina's way of life. Many smells, scents, colors in the narrow roads to travel aimlessly. You will not regret!

The streets are narrow, and the donkeys have the right of way - but it is a must see and do in Fes. Make sure you stop by the leather tannery..

It´s amazing to see all the detail, the work, the colors and the magic that unfolds in the city. You walk around and get to learn about all of the arts and crafts that represent the country. It feels as if you traveled through time, the only way to get the real felling of the City is to visit the... More

Lovely little part of fes the old city has a huge market with multiple little streets with various items for sale including jewellery, etched metal ware , candles etc. The wonderful thing is the vendors are not pushy or loud and allow you to walk around and browse at your convenience without pushing you to buy. At various points there... More
