Fes is not clean, not amazing and not a shoppers paradise. We found more people pushing us for buying things from them then Marrakech which we enjoyed immensely. Also living in Riad in Fes is very challenging., The Riads are away from the nearest point of taxi and you have to drag your luggage with anyother stuff that you bought... More

The usual starting point for exploring (or getting lost) in the ancient Medina dated circa AD800 is the impressive monument Bab Boujloud gate, a relative newcomer on the historical scene dated 1913, on one side of the three arches is a tourist police station and on the other the remains of the old city water distributor closed off to public...

We could not believe our eyes - this medina has stayed the same for centuries. We felt like walking in the Middle Ages, in a good way. People still making their own shoes, clothes, utensils literary on the street. We love the public fountains and common bakeries. Hopefully the modernity will not influence this magic place, ever.

First of all...let your feet be your guide...wear extremely comfortable shoes because it is not flat walking. Walking the Medina is an adventure, it's winding, you can and will get lost ( if you don't have a guide ) but it's fine. Just ask and for a few coins someone will get back to your starting point.

we loved exploring the narrow streets of this fascinating place that has the lot; historic buildings, a maze of interesting lanes, great atmosphere, fabulous market stalls, amazing variety of artisan products for sale, and a feeling of safety. People were friendly and helpful, and we didn't experience the harassment that other people have reported.

It looks like you are above the world, with a view of the contrasts between greenery and desert like medina. Do not miss it

In contrast to Marrakech, the medina of Fes has relatively wide streets so it is relaxing to stroll through and look at the many shops. Also in contrast to Marrakech there are not many animals nor their droppings, so one can look around rather than at the ground. We enjoyed several strolls through the medina.

Worth to visit. Look down and learn to ignore. I recommend to take manual-GPS with you - real maze. Hold for helpers (locals, who try to lead the way).
