Nice medina

The low-scale and high-scale shopping streets are both interesting. Also good for general strolling.

Medinas are fun. They're a glimpse of a life we can only visit. Prices are good, people are nice, very crowded. Medinas are not just for tourists. They're a good place to shop for almost anything. Because of the crowds, like everywhere, beware of pickpockets.

We went there for a walk. Not a lot to do. I wouldn't advise anyone to go there. The houses are nice but that's it. Disappointing

Ive travelled to a few places in Morocco, Rabat being the most cosmopolitan of all. The medina is very big in comparison to others I have been to, I stayed in a small typical Moorish style hotel just off the medina, staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The city has a lot to offer for travellers wishing to sample the... More

I have been staying at a host family in medina for a week and I really liked it there. It has some of the most amazing doors you can see, and every evening and night it is so full of people selling and buying. I hope you get to see the inside of the apartments because they are so different... More

Best medina I visited in Morocco. Friendlier and less touristy than Marrakesh. This place is a REAL maze, you can and will get lost - but don't worry, as long as you don't have to be something by a certain time :) Amazing how authentic this place is. This is the heart of Rabat, and the locals shop here.

The Medina was so exotic and colorful with all the vendors mixed in with a community of homes. The streets are strictly pedestrian and not wide enough for cars making the experience as if you were in days long past. Everyone in the Medina was friendly and eager to help.

Not nearly as many mopeds speeding around, not once were we hounded by the locals for a handout, quieter, etc. If you have young children with you then this is the kind of place where you can take them confidently.
