Of the place we saw in the 2 weeks we were in Morocco, this was probably the most talked about amongst our group of travellers. There is so much that can be said - it smells, but not too much, it's chaotic, crowded and a bit out of control, but you feel ok about it, it is a complete clash... More

Amazing place with plenty opportunities to do. You can buy there almost everything, from football kits to TV sets. You can feel here the true berberic culture and intensive smell.

It is our first time visit at Fes. It is indeed a city with a lot of stories to tell. One of the oldest or maybe the oldest city of Morocco. The souk or médina can be compared to Marrakech but a bit dirty. What I like about Fes was the traces of the ancient time. The old city walls... More

Very interesting place to visit. A lot of touts will offer to help you but help is not needed. Always remember that the downhill leads to RCI'F, two main roads Kabira (the big one) and Saghira (the small one). Follow these and you don't need anyone. On your own it is much more fun.

Fez was my first Medina i was there twice in a row and i just didnt feel it. Its huge, besides if I compare to other cities prices in Fez Medina were the highest for leather shopping, pottery and other souvenirs. Dont go on Medina on Friday, its almost empty and nothing to see. But its good training for Marrakech,... More

The guide books made us nervous about going it alone in the medina but the day we arrived my husband and I ventured out - and in. Being close to Bab Boujloud we slowly entered and wound our way down the main passageway. Careful to retrace our steps back out we easily broke the spell of fear. Then we got... More

Wonderful sense of the exotic. Sometimes the passages are so serpentinely covered that you no longer feel that you're outside. Perhaps not for the claustrophobic. Avoid offers of help from strangers (who will expect a tip) unless you are absolutely lost and need the help to get back to your riad or a gate where you can find a taxi.

By being one of the oldest and largest medinas in Marocco, it is a very interesting place to be and get lost in - though I would recommend a guide for at least half a day. The surrounding is also quite nice, with many spots to look over the city, especially during sunrise or sunset. The food was good and... More

Amazing two days in Fez medina! Be sure to take a guide with you when strolling through the streets - you don't want to get lost.

Firstly there are 9000 streets/passages, make sure you have a guide as you will get lost. Amazing place to see the 'real' Morocco - the food, shops and stalls. Seeing people go about daily life. It really feels like you've gone back in time, as you wander around the narrow streets as locals carry heavy loads or the odd donkey... More
