Fes is a beautiful city in Morocco. It was perhaps the most surprising city we visited. Although I would recommend everyone to visit, there needs to be an awareness of where you are travelling. A lot of people will try to basically trick you into giving them money, non stop, and when you say no, they might insult you. The... More

This was one of our favorite places in Morocco. This area has so much you should visit but you have to study it well not to get lost.

This section houses the university, the casbah, sook and market place. It is a labyrinth of shops, madrasas mosques and more.

Fez has so much to offer! A little out of the way, but so historic, small and manageable and wonderful friendly people. We were so happy we visited Fez.
