“A good size medina”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

Meknes Medina was and interesting place with lots of hidden places to shop. Outside the resturant staff will demand your attendion to come and dine with them...which can be a bit overwhelming...but venture further and you will find an array of spice vendors, tasty sweets and various other local delights to tempt you. Beaware that around the sweets there are sometimes lots of bees. They wont bother you...but just something to beaware of if you are allergic.

“Small and less hassles.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

You will learn to find your way around this Medina quite easily as it is much smaller than Fes or Marrakech. It seems friendlier with not so much of the pressures of bigger Medinas.

“SUPER --LE SOIR!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

Meknes medina is wonderful...at night, during the day in the summer forget it,,too hot!
Usual stuff you'll find in other Medina apart from the Camel steaks and other recipes based with Camel's meat!

“One of the most authentic medinas in Morocco”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

Meknes medina is still untouched by mass tourism and I think this is what makes it such an interesting place to stop for a few days. Most tour group just visit the main square and move on to something else. This means that apart from one or two streets, the medina can still give you that feeling of really being in a commercially active centre. Don't miss the metalwork section and the damscene decorators. Take a walk straight through the medina from Bab Mansour to Bab Berdain and enjoy the great view onto the Zerhoun mountains.

“Good intro to Medina layouts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

As mentioned by other reviews, the smaller size of this medina makes it a good starter in which to get used to basic navigation around a Medina.
