It's a little spooky at night but all the shops will have closed so you will not be bombarded by salesmen hawking wares. You will experience the Medina as a living and breathing residential organism. Kind of like a desert Ksar or Kasbah. At the...More

This is a sanitized version of the huge Fes medina. It is rather small and more organized and lacks the charm of the other medinas in Morocco which is chaotic! It is also less crowded. The saving grace is that the popular cookie store Bennis...More

First off ~Do not stop at the vendors at the entrance & go in the morning when it opens. Follow the women with the shopping bags! It’s about a block in before you see the REAL market. It was a wonderful experience seeing the market....More

And they call it a small market. It’s almost a whole village that we could stay in and not come out. Everything from traditional to the latest fashion, snacks to meals, spices, fresh fish, fruits and vegetables. You can even get your nails and hair...More

The old medina is very similar to other medinas in Fez and Marrakesh but smaller. It is more authetic than souk in Marrakesh. People are friendly and there is not as much pressure on the tourists to shop.

During our trip to Morocco, we visited the medinas in four cities: Tangier, Fez, Marrakech, and Casablanca. Without a doubt, the medina in Casablanca is the one you can miss. It's smaller, more touristy than the others and not nearly as historic.

The medina is the oldest part of Casablanca, surrounded by remnants of a wall, gates and fortifications. People live, worship, eat, drink and shop here, so it is a teeming city within a city. Narrow streets are more like alleyways, twisting and turning, some with...More

Well,no. The architecture is great, no doubt about it. But the stalls are smelly, and dirty. Not great. Go there anyway, because it is one of the more interesting sights. Just don't expect too much.

Shop around and bargain to get the best price. I would only use cash in the Medina. If the shop doesn't ship and if you want to be sure the slippers are mailed, you can always mail them yourself. Your hotel can help you... More
