This medina is really not interesting compared to any medina of other cultural cities, such as Fes, Meknes, Marrakesh or Chefchaouen. Without praise or blame. Prices are higher than in other cities.

Really fun to walk around and talk to locals, the souvenirs are beautiful it's a challenge not to spend ALL your money! Make sure you bargain though, tourists are given a higher starting price it seems!

Looking for a bargain? bring a moroccan with you ... other wise you'll be paying 40-50% more than the actual selling price for locals ... Go in the morning to aviod the crowd ... especially for families with children, in the late afternoon and evening it usually get's chaotic with thousands of people pushing and shoving

Warning, if you want the canned homogenized experience, avoid. If you want the full Moroccan experience, this is a can't miss. Loud, hot, crowded, and a hell of an interesting experience. Learn to haggle, my fellow Americans lol. Nothing should be bought at sticker price. Sunflower seeds to suits, it's all available here.

Knowing many of the treasures looted/saved from Volubilus are housed in the Rabat Archeological Museum, we wanted a look. Not a fancy museum by any means, it has an amazing collection

That's an amazing place to wander. It is not so touristy at night and safe to walk around. Street food is everywhere and smells are great. Loved the fact it feels very genuine and not aimed at tourists.
