Once you have seen one, you have seen - and smelled - them all. This is a large area and has some, rather sad, monkey and snake handlers (who are extremely aggressive and should be banned). The media is large but easy to navigate. Plenty of cafes and restos make it for a nice afternoon.

Late afternoon onwards seems to be more active. Lots of places to get lost and view. You will see spices, shoes, clothing, jewellery, rugs and lots of other produce and merchandise. There are snake charmers, women who want tattoo the hands of female tourists and lots of other things happening. A must do in Marrakech.

You must have been once to the medina to know what kind of place it is. It is hectic, you get lost in the souks, even if you have a very good orientation ability. Very friendly people.They try to sell there stuff, but are not intrusive at all. Lovely colors, Nice smell and bustle, but all very nice. A must... More

Medina is the central old city of Marrakech which includes the best touristic attractions of Marrakech. I do recommend to visit this place.

This world is so different than our cities, it is a "must see" at least one in a lifetime. If you wanted to shopping some handmade goods (shoes, etc...) you can visit the markets those are phenomenal. I never saw something like this, it is so colourful and busy. It is a really uniqe place.

Fun place to visit if you don't mind getting lost from time to time and enjoy the experience of near Biblical living. We spent three nights in a western hotel outside the medina and two nights in a riad inside the medina. Definitely spend at least one night inside. Appreciate the merchants, the donkeys, the clatter of countless motorcycles and... More

Surrounded by a high wal the Medina is the oldest part of Marrakesh. Here you will find the souks or shops and the main square with some good restaurants offering rooftop terrace dinning.

Medina is worth visiting just to experience the maze of streets and alley ways. Beware though locals will look to get you lost just to charge you to get you out. This is not restricted to children adults do it as well...it appears to be a form of sport.

This place is insane, you can breath years of history and culture in this place. If you are visiting Marrakesh this is one of the obligatory places to see. You will see from guys playing guitar with a chicken on his head to a box fight in the middle of the streets. You will have everything for sale here, just... More
