This lively medina has everything from spices to scarves to carpets to turtles. Expect to bargain for all your purchases, which is half of the fun. You can easily spend 2 to 4 hours here meandering from stall to stall.

One of the first Medina experiences in our trip to Morocco, I thouroughly enjoyed walking around teh medina in Rabat. It was an interesting, bustling Medina, with plenty of vendors selling all manner of goods. While bustling with activity it wasn't at all a stressful experience, and there were no hassles whatsoever. Well worth spending a couple of hours wanding... More

We spent some time in the Rabat Medina. It is very touristy. There is a more authentic medina in another part of town where the locals shop. . If you are looking for great souvenirs and art, then this is your destination.

A pretty good sized medina with lots of shops and restaurants. They sell a lot of items from art, lamps, leather jackets to furniture. A lot spices and food are sold as well. Unlike in Western retail, bartering is done here with the shopkeepers and you can usually get things for a much more discounted price than advertised. Prepared food,... More

Really enjoyed walking through here in mid afternoon during Ramadan. No hassles, but when I wanted help they were there for me. One of the better souks. Lots of food places in the medina- we even found pizza for 15dh. Really don't like the motorbikes that nearly take you down, but it's a reality.

Medinas and old cities with its markets and local activities are always worth a visit everywhere I go. The local atmosphere gives you a real feel for the place. You can see what is going on, how people are during various times of the day, what they are normally wearing, what they sell and buy. It is daily life as... More

We felt safer in Rabat than in many other places of the world. We walked the length of two main streets of the medina in the afternoon, and enjoyed the cultural experience. Bought a few food items, some pottery, brocade, and just marveled at the variety and the level of life. This was during Ramadan, so no food was available... More

If you love shopping the medina is a must...but the locals are aware of that too. If you go into the medina be prepared for constant haggling and bartering and locals trying to lure you in.My friend and I got very lost once because we followed a "guide" who ended up leading us to a tannery when we were trying...
