i dont gey why there is so much stick about Marrakech, it looked very dead here in fes. So the few tourists that were here were obviously going to b targeted to be "helped". Maybe I've just been Marrakech more but I found for shopping it was easier to find items there. and the fes medina was slightly more cramped... More

We could only walk around the Medina for a limited time as we just got tired of the constant attack. However, if shopping is your thing then this won't bother you.

You need some comfortable shoes, and you will be rewarded with a view into a way of life that is centuries old. In the Medina of Fez, people work, live, shop and enjoy their lives. Though touts trying to sell their services can be annoying at the gates, the Medina is a wonderful place to wander and see how Fassis... More

Fez medina is the biggest in Morocco so you might imagine how easy it is to get lost, it has over 8000 streets of which about 4000 have no exit. This being said you might imagine it is better to go with a guide, however it is not mandatory. Streets are full of items and crafts, most of which are... More

amasing area to walk around with so many gorgeous doors and little streets. You can get lost so I do recommend having a guide to walk you around and help out with information.

This was a much easier experience than the Medina in Marrakech. People were friendly and we got some nice crafts.

This is my favorite Medina in Morocco. It seems more real and authentic, not so commercial. My favorite part is going with a guide who can take you to see the amazing artisans at work with weaving, ceramics, leather, and mosaic. I also love seeing the historical things, like the water clock, oldest university in the world and the lovely... More
