Full of characters and smells and great food. The juice vans though delicious are known to upset Western tummies... Speaking from experience but do it go get food and suck up some atmosphere it will be a great experience

I visited the square as part of a Medina and Souks tour. I wasnt particularly confident with visiting the square on my own his square is a crazy busy place, if you hate crowds, especially in the evening you won't enjoy it. The best way...More

I thought this was a great experience. Just the throngs of tourists, vendors, hawkers, and passersby. With the mosque lit up at night it's a great visual experience. Tons of restaurants are here including cheap eats to expensive tourist traps.

This place is a hoot! The sights, smells and sounds were intoxicating, especially as it got later in the evening. We went in the daytime and the evening and it had a dramatically different feel each time. There are acrobats, snake charmers, animal trainers, food...More

Yes - you should be fine. Very busy but perfectly safe if you keep your wits about you. Have a great trip. I would happily go back and plan to at some point.

Sorry, another tip: pick an easy to find spot to meet your friends at in case one of you does get separated by mistake. It's a very busy and crowded place, easy to get separated.
