The Rabat Medina is nice to walk though but nothing like Marrakech or Fes. Is fiberant and busy but doesn’t have the same amount of shops or alleyways where you can get lost for hours. If you go here off-season you might get some good deals since business is slow for the shops. It's a lot more dirty than other... More

It's a nice place, unfortunately (for me) don't try to buy something, less-expensive down-town . Try to get some roof for pictures and relax moments.

Yoy can find so much in those narrow pedestrian charming clean alleys. And all in display is so absolutely tasteful, Moroccan where taste is supreme. Enjoy!

Wider streets than most medinas. Was there at night for a stroll and then during the day when all the shops etc were open. Nice place if you can handle the smells etc. you really can't say you know Rabat if you haven't visited its Medina.

Being part of a large group tour to Morocco, comprising of 22 ladies, it is easy to imagine that every trip to a historic or any place of interest must end in a souk / Medina. I was totally overwhelmed by the variety of pottery, plates, different shapes and sizes, teapots, bowls, urns.....the pieces have such intricate patterns which made... More

After a morning and early afternoon sightseeing, our guide gave us the option of going back to the hotel or spend a few hours at the Medina. The next few hours flew by as we explored, talked with locals, and got totally turned around. The sights sounds and smells let you know you are not in Kansas any more!

Batch of different colors and scents. Shop all and all, and unfortunately I think a lot of products that are selling Asian origin. Bargaining is mandatory: P

Great to visit, no big hassles like Marrakech and Fez. All the normal medina attractions, food, clothing, shoes, art work and nick-backs. Worth a walk along the whole length of Md. V. To see how it changes from the median to the most prestigious street in Rabat
