You'll find Meknes medina to be quieter and a little more peaceful than the ones in Marrakech and Fes, although it can be equally stressful because of the merchants that can and will annoy you in order to sell you something, but that's part of the game. A little tip: buying their beautiful handmade objects is a must, but remember... More

Like most have already said, be prepared to be everyone's "friend". Bartering/haggling is a must here! Never pay the asking price! There are so many stores to be seen here. It's just an interesting place to see!

We stayed in Fes most of the time, it was incredible to go to Meknes and experience something less busy, more quiet and generally more relaxed. Maybe a snake charmer is cruel to animals, and you need to push him back so he doesn't force you to wearing a snake, but it's still more quiet than Medina in Fes!

Easy to find your way around in, and no one in your face all the time. An easy walk, considering the Riad El Ma is right in the centre of it.

Easy to get lost in but small enough to really not care. Whichever direction one always ended up outside the medina - which was also fascinating - finding the artisans quarters or a souk or the Place el Hedim (square) or Bab Mansour and the imperial palace.

I had the best time here shopping and bargaining with the owners. The selection is not the largest, but that was not so much a bad thing.

Vey vibrant and a good place to get some food for a snack or lunch. It is near the ramparts and some beautiful gates. Locals friendly-traffic crazy but that is Morocco.

The most impressive site to see in Meknés' medina, as this medina is very small, is its tanneries. To get a view of these, you would need to enter one of the many vendor's boutiques and go up to the second floor. No need to look for which vendor has a view onto the tanneries, these vendors, as you walk... More

This medina is certainly a local's medina. Make sure you look for the man making sugarcane juice! I promise you will not regret the 5 dhs! I don't find anything spectacular about the items sold here you can definitely find a better variety in Marrakech and Fes, but remember when you go to those places you are likely to pay... More
