The medina is an interesting maze of streets. A huge market and easy to get lost and feel like you will never find the end. It's a good experience for an hour or so.

The old Tetouan Medina is stunning and very picturesque. Passing by the narrow streets feels like time travel in a recent past.

Authentic, rare opportunity to go into a time capsule. Tetouans medina is an absolute treasure and I hope it never changes. The privilege of walking through the medina (getting lost) is rare opportunity. For those who didn't like it,,, go home or go to Disneyland,...More

Have visited a number of Medina's across Morocco. The Medina was not overly big and there were very few tourists but a number of people who wanted to be your guide. Nice enough but not overly special even though a UNESCO site.

Tetouan would be an option but I recommend you to take a taxi to safe time. I recommend highly the medina. Just go with the flow, it's a wonderful experience if you're open to the real Moroccan life.
