Since we were staying at a close by hotel, we thought we would visit this Medina. After all, this is Casablanca, and "it must have an impressive Medina." BUT NOT SO! Compared to Fes and Marrakech Medinas, it is small time (teeny time). There are...More

After visiting the old Medina in Tangier, Rabat, Fez, Marrakech, Essaouria, the Casablanca Medina just cannot stand up to the other ones in terms of size, cleanliness, and shopping. It was a short walk from our hotel but we left after 10 minutes.

We visited the Old Medina of Casablanca but I was disappointed. It was more like an old flea market. Our guide didn't even want to take us there because it is dirty. For anyone with mobility issues, this is a difficult place because of steps...More

The Medina has a different atmosphere depending what time of day you go but the locals are friendly and not pushy. They do offer themselves as guides but a polite "La Shoukran" is generally enough. The real Medina is hidden up backstreets and it's very...More

This is a must visit. But beware of doing all your shopping here. You want to save some shopping for Fes and Marrakech. They have equally good if not better Medinas. Haggle the price. 50% reduction is a good deal. 20-30% is a reasonable deal....More

There are many cities with much more colorful Medina. But this place is still good, if you do not have the opportunity to see another. Narrow trading mazes and many hawkers . Be alert with pockets and valuables.

I went here with my Nephew and a friend of his. This made the trip more enjoyable as they spoke the language keeping the various hucksters away. Find the olive market and get a selection, they make for great snacks before dinner for the rest...More

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
