This may be the most fascinating place I have ever been. Steeped in history from the 14th century, it is a maze of narrow alleys, filled with raids, shops, schools, and artistry that I doubt it can befound anywhere else. Definitely go with a guide- the locals don't like tourists much ( do not take photos of them or their... More

On an Intrepid Tour of Morocco 16 of us visited this busy busy medina in Fez. Narrow alleyways catering for pedestrians, cyclists, motor cyclists, donkeys, wheelbarrows & just about anything else that could move with vendors of just about anything you could want. Most interesting & a must if touring Morocco.

Lost very easily, no centre at all. A bit of a disappointment. We were taken to various craft works where we were expected to buy highly priced (though in some cases exquisite) products. it was hard work!

It was our first stay in Morocco and we were surprised of how friendly people were. There is a lot to see: few old mosks, one of the oldest university, palace. As well it is a great place to go crazy with shopping and dine in beautiful places with rooftops or indoor gardens.

What an experience. This is truly a city onto itself. Never seen anything like it - make sure to go see the leather making - really cool

It is very authentic and there is so much to see behind the discreet walls of this enchanting old city.

I've seen the medina's from all kingstowns, but loved this one most. Really nice. People were nice and not pushing. Wished i had more time to walk around and lost road.

Take a guide. 1200 years of growth within the old walls has produced a rabbit warren of fascinating lanes and alleys. Every corner brings a new experience. From the donkey driven rubbish service to sublime mosques, riads, souqs, food, clothes and the slightly smelly but truly amazing tanneries. Stray cats abound and watch your step for tiny kittens and donkey... More

Make sure you don't get lost and know your way out. What an incredible maze and noise of people and stores. Like nothing else in the world.

Best advice I had was, this medina is a bowl. When you move downhill you are getting more into it, when you move uphill you are on your way out. Vendors are generally very friendly and not too pushy at all.
