If you are in Marrakech then it is difficult to avoid visiting the Medina. It is well worth the time taken to visit. It wasn't what we expected but, on reflection, we decided that we were not very sure what we expected anyway. The huge square was vibrant with activity and noise when we arrived. It was full of people so we decided to walk around the edge of the throng. There were crowds of people, locals and visitors, gathered around groups of traditional musicians and dancers performing in the square. There were lots of souvenir stalls in the square but we didn't bother. Apparently visitors have to haggle on every price. We had never seen so many fresh orange juice sellers in one place. The Souk is in the Medina and there visitors will find the narrow streets with thousands of shops selling everything from beautiful pottery, leather and carpets to a variety of knock-off sports goods and trinkets. The spice sellers, who appear to be imprisoned inside their colourful stalls, should not be missed. There are lots of places to eat in the Medina and visitors should shop around for the best value.
