Lots of things to buy and eat

There's lots of things to buy and eat, although be careful that you don't get lost because there's so many small streets. Also beware of being overcharged.

Rue Lusitania in Casablanca was one of the main streets that Jews were living. Synagogue Ben Harosh is one of the holy places still exist and still in operation. Em Habanim was one of the schools for Jewish children and still there with the Synagogue open for prayers. The best time for visit the places is Friday so you can... More

We started off in the medina and headed south. The markets went on and on and we saw markets in every backstreet and main street for hours of walking. Nothing new after a 30 mins of walking but a good sight to see and amazing to watch the locals go about their daily work. Take a phone with gps as... More

blanko priskyrimas A bit sterile, but quite the right place for shopping. We thound that prices are significantly lower here than in other more tourist cities and quality is pretty good. But the most interesting for us was adjacent districts (right outside the walls) with the buzzing local souks and a real life.

This place was nice. King was in town so the area was under tight control due to proximity to his Casablanca palace. This place is worth a walk through if you have time but not a "must see" destination in Casablance especially if you have seen the Fez or Marakech Medinas. Place is clean and pretty but has a modern... More

Compared to Marrakech, this Medina is a bit quiet. Easy to roam around and local are so friendly. Unfortunately, they speak French and Arabic more than English. Hard to communicate.

Lots to see here. Avoid where the cruise ship types unload. That's where the crowds are, the drunk arrogant passengers, and all the hustlers trying to make money from the passengers. Once you get away from all that, it's rather enjoyable and I highly recommend.

This is a very large Medina. I didn't know what a Medina was until it was explained that a Medina needs to consist of Riads, Mosque, Bakery, Hamam and Souk. So what you are walking around is a collection of all of that. Best you sit and watch the locals in action to get the vibe.
