“Going back in time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

Dont be fooled by the other name - new Fez! It is still 12-14th century. Streets are wider and cleaner than old Fez. As we were there in the morning, not many of the stalls/shops were opened yet. Good pair of walking shoes is preferred.

“A world back in time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Be prepared to get lost but that's half the fun? Very hot in July and hotter in August. View of the medina at sunset from a terrace is spectacular. Every home has a satellite dish.

“Impressive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

This is a must, but get ready to be impressed by the dirty alleys, the people shouting and terrible smell.
You can not miss this expeeience, but be accompanied by someone that know s the way, the language and can guide you.

“Just get lost”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

You will eventually get lost anyway so just relax and enjoy. When you think it's been enough ask someone in a store how to get back ... the medina is an amazing place and experience ;)
