We stayed inside the Medina in Fez at our Riad for 3 days and explored the windy and hidden streets. Maps won't help you here, just wander around and meet the locals that live there. Explore the shops and businesses that have been around for hundreds of years. A true cultural immersion. Fez is TOTALLY worth the visit - a... More

The medina is everything you've read about it - fascinating, mysterious, hectic, dizzying, and worth every minute. A truly unique experience. I tend to like following a map, having a destination, and staying on plan - but this is not that kind of place. Nevertheless, you can have a very worthwhile experience. Although it is twisty, We identified a few... More

A lovely spot for a cultural trip that looks like no other. It is one of the most outstanding testimony of the andalusian culture.

A traditional moroccan medina. Overall a good experience to explore Moroccan medina. However, the people in medina may be pushy at some time

Amazing experience, but don't get fooled. It's nothing like Marrakech Medina where you can find your way around. I recommend a guide. We spent about 30€ for an official guide for a day. He took us everywhere. Tannery was unbelievable. Don't shop from the touristic places. There are amazing little authentic shops. Spend the whole day at the medina. Get... More

A great marketplace for looking, shopping, people watching and sampling local olives, fruits, breads and pastries. We passed on the camel meat. Colorful with many photo opportunities.

This place is very special and I have never visited anything like it. It is spectacular inside the houses and palaces but it is very discreet from the outside.

I have never seen anything like the Medina of Fez. One narrow street after another. Each curves in whatever direction it chooses. It is near impossible to not get lost. Definitely have gps on your phone or take a guide. The gps does not give you street names (I am not sure there are many) but will show you the... More

It is quite an experience to visit this souk and Medina. I would say you will feel like if you had been into the time machine and go back to middle ages in what regards certain aspects. You will find that the Moroccan people still use ancester techniques to produce their products. Please do not miss the Madrasa and Tanneries.... More
