I liked the Medina. We stayed inside it for over a week. But there are some thing te be aware of. First of all, in spite of my rather well developed sense of direction, I got lost quite a few times. Google maps is useless,...More

I had a chance to stay in, walk through and shop/haggle in the medina and it was an experience! First let me say the medina is busy! It is tight, full of people selling, walking and shopping, as well as people on bicycles, scooters and...More

A trip to Marrakech just has to include a visit to the medina, including Jemaa el Fna. A real culture "shock" for European visitors, which gives a real flavour of the Moroccan way of way. Fascinating, has to be seen to be believed, an interest...More

It's a very cultural experience when visiting the medina. There are food, juice, performance. However, be careful of your surrounding as people could chase you for their business. And you need to filter thru what deal works for you. Advice, not engage in the conversations/products...More

You need to get used to this exploration of winding labyrinths. Be prepared to be badgered. The artisans work is quite repetitive - leather goods,carpets ,spices ,oils, shoes clothes etc etc. We made sure we had an official guide for 4 hrs organised by Riad....More

The Medina or old town is fascinating, the windy cobbled streets, the hundreds of shops and street sellers create an atmosphere hard to replicate anywhere else in Europe. The Souks where they make leather goods, clothes, jewellery, metalwork are great to have a nose around....More

Not sure I would take a year old to Marrakesh if I'm honest. However, that is your choice. Riads are small so make sure you do your homework. When you arrive at immigration there is a route to the left for families so you... More
