We stayed at a Riad in the Medina, so we spent a lot of time here. The shopping and wagering was a lot of fun. You never pay for what they are asking. Sometimes we got over 50% off. A little classier then the Medina's in Fez or Marrakesh.

Much better prices then other cities like Marrakech, just make sure to negotiate down from whatever they start with. Small market but lots of variety, easy to navigate. People were eager to sell but not pushy.

It's not the best medina in Marrocco, mostly because it does not look that old and classic. Nevertheless it's a great place to see some traditional shops.

Compared to Marrakesh this was a breeze! No guide needed. People much friendlier, more low key. Still willing to negotiate, but prices started much more reasonably. Great wood boxes and carvings. Really fun!

great Medina altho not as beautiful as the ones in Marrakez and fez, it is very well worth a visit. Take a stroll enjoy a tea with the localmechant and have a bargaining sessions just for fun

Not as varied but less touting and pressure than other cities. Because it's smaller seemed more crowded. But 2 main streets made it easy to navigate

Some streets ar ok but the majority of them are very dirty and smelly. It's the same outside of the medina, so it's Rabat.

Rabat Medina is the easiest medina of all in Morocco, manageable, nice walking, with different sections: 12th century, 17th century, with a Mellah (Jewish quarter), a bustling commercial street Souika, a more sophisticated and touristy area, Rue des Consuls, and near downtown Rabat, the ocean, the Bouregreg river, and the Kasbah of the Oudayas. Its location is making of it... More
