You come to Morocco? Do vudit la Medina before leaving! Even if you do not need anything... you might find something to take home. Just the walking through the Medina is worth for the sight seeing. A lot of people active selling, buying, cooking food, drinking/ eating, transporting goods, some bikers. A rich pallet of characters in narrow streets that... More

As advertized, it's a place where it's easy to get lost. But it's also a place where you won't mind getting lost. Artists and craftsmen practicing centuries-old traditions of metalwork, pottery, woodwork, handloom, leatherwork etc in winding, sometimes cobbled, narrow and narrower alleys and byways make for an exhilarating adventure. Haggle over prices - great if you get the price... More

This Medina only allows donkeys and push carts. avoids the mopeds and cycles of Marrakech. Although it can seem overwhelming at night, we went though several nights without any problems

Smile, you're in Fez! SO much to look at, definitely get a tour guide to show you the history of how a Medina is established and how the artwork is relative to the culture.

Stepping into the medina is Stepping back in time. Dont worry about getting lost because u ll always end somewhere. Just remember some landmarks you will remember like bab boujloud or batha and ask a young kid to bring you back there for a few dirhams. Or just follow the signs. Ps on friday most of the medina is closed... More

If you want to survive this Medina you really need to block yourself and some times be rude to people. They really harass you to the point that becomes really hard ..

This is actually my second visit to Fes and the medina. The amazing maze and local ambiance is totally captivating. As we visited during the month of July which is the Eid Mubarak after Ramadhan, the medina appears quieter than before. The medina is built in the 9th century and houses the world's first university. No vehicles are allowed in... More

Touring the street of Fes Medina took us about 11 hours of walking and then 30 minutes of mule ride. The architecture is old and interestingly well preserved. Very interesting trip. Don't do the Fes Medina alone, you definitely need a tour guide.
