So many colors, tastes and architecture dating back to the 9th century. Either enjoy getting lost there (and plan many hours for that ;) or get a guide to pick the highlights - they actually have several topic "circuits": history, culture, architecture, handcraft, etc. We spent 3hrs with a local guide, much enjoyed it ! :) ... we also bought...

During the day the medina is the perfect place to spend hours wondering, seeing sights, eating food and getting lost. We decided to find the blue gate and work down from there. There are two main down routes you can go on. There will be lots of helpful 'guides' wanting to show you the way to the tanneries etc. but... More

Fez Medina is by far my favourite medina in Morocco I've been to. Hustle,bustle and not so much hassle. Loads of different street food stalls and hole in the wall places,lots of alleyways to disappear down and get lost. Find yourself down a dead end in residential area for an authentic taste.If you like shopping(not my thing)but it's got anything... More

One could very easily get lost wandering through the many kilometres of amazing sites, smells and tastes in buildings that are hundreds of years old and full of so many colours and images from Arabian nights.

The Fes Medina is a significant upgrade to the one in Marrakech. Bigger, no vehicles, prettier, well lit and the up & down slopes add charm. The only downside is the neverending tourist hassle of people trying to show you the way.

Step into the 9th century, but do it with someone who knows, because it is a labyrinth of more than 9 thousand alleys and mini alleys , you can easily get lost. My tour was for 3 hours, a little too much. As they take you to pre set stores. This part I did not like so much, as you... More

If you have been to the Marrakesh's medina, this is slightly different. Some of the road leading to the tannery are pretty steep. The medina shops (apart from the restaurant) shut down at 8pm. I did not anticipate this and most of the roads become quiet and deserted.
