It is not as elaborate or as expensive as the shop in the Fez or Marrakesh Medinas ....but it is less expensive and the deeper you go in the Medina...the more local items you will find. Once you get comfortable, it will help you both navigate and negotiate in Fez and Marrakesh

A great for strolling in the city. This is the old town. There are some great stops. We were fortunate to have a taxi driver that took us in the medina and then was kind enough to show us around and give us some history. But very manageable on your own too. If you have been to Marrakech or Fez,... More

I visited Meknes Medina with a peregrine travel group. We really enjoyed our tour of the Medina. With a tour guide you get to see a lot in a short period of time, and it also eliminates the getting lost factor and how to get back to accommodation. We saw everything from fresh fruit, produce, meat, to silver, leather and... More

I expected something more exciting knowing that Meknes was once the capital of Morroco. It is small and nothing to see. One - two hours should be enough for visiting the city. Do not spend a night in Meknes, it does not worth it.

Personally i found this medina not interesting. The local market was very boring and the shops in the plazza very average and touristic.

The old city, Medina in Meknes was something else. Truly an inspiring and great place to spend hours looking, shopping, eating etc. The Moroccan food scene is another world and its pricing is un matched. Tajines galore.

Nice contrast to Fes. Their main square has the same snake and monkey performers that Marrakech has unfortunately. Nice to walk around the souks as their is less touristy stuff there. The silver workers area is interesting.

Lots of people drinking tea and just hanging around. Narrow streets under the rooftops, a lot of small shops and food stops. Typical African environment. Buy whatsoever and bargain before you pay! And yes they have a small shop there sell the camel meat!
