As the capital of Morocco, Rabat is filled with more historical monuments etc. Their medina is my third pick after fes and marrakech. Easier to navigate and you will be invisible here. No touting no hassling. You can window shop at your own pace. They...More

Don’t try it on your own ... my suggestion is you have a guide. The narrow alleys they call streets are so numerous with soooo many ways to get turned around very easily. Proceed with caution if entering on your own for the first time...More

While not as vibrant as the medinas of Fez and Marrakesh, surely worth a visit. A feast for the senses, Americans are very welcome here, unlike some other parts of the Arab world.

If you want to just experience the 'old world feeling' of medina, this is definitely a place to go. It is definitely overpriced and touristy. There are spices, toys, clothes including jubbas, abayas and scarves etc. There are hairdressers (male and female), salons, and of...More
