I do not think there is much there. The views tom outside are nice as one can see Rabat, the fortress and the town of Sale but very little of interest in the median itself. The prices and choices for souvenir are significantly less attractive...More

Once you're off the main streets, there are many roads of very civilized, covered shopping roads ... foot traffic only (and the occasional scooter). There are some of these 'roads' that are modern and some that are old. Nice atmosphere, and lots of selection. Beautiful,...More

This was the first medina that we visited. We entered at Bab Chellah. It was pretty easy to find riad. The souk street had a lot to offer. The streets were relatively wide and there were landmarks to help with navigation within the medina. I...More

Breathtakingly beautiful ancient city still lived in today. A step back into the past. The open squares and narrow streets are enchanting. The architecture is stunning. Right in the centre of Rabat you can walk around the entire city in an hour.

Very crowded. Nothing spectacular. There seem to be a lot of Asian products to sell versus local ware. Nice part is that they don’t try and hawk you. Is it worth the visit, ???? Not really.

The main square behind the medina and the old walls give you sense of history but the medina market doesn´t feel as authentic like others in Marocco.. What caught my eye were the writers with the old writing machine on the main street. Thas was...More

While this is not as large as the Medina in Fez, it's still a wonderfully chaotic old winding mess of stone, architecture, shops, and fun for adventurous spirits. All kinds of goods to be found.

The Medina is a fun place to explore and get lost. The shopping is directed heavily towards tourism, but you can get some good deals; I bought a very nice leather jacket. The best part was walking all over and getting lost. People live here...More

Or, if you are brave enough you can walk into Medina and grab some street food. I am taking about Rabat Medina though. It's bustling at night with food stalls, very lively. Note - I am talking about Rabat Medina. Don't... More
