We docked here for the day, left the port where we had to put with the barrage of beggars 'guides' and souvenir sellers. The local youths were more intimidating and some other passengers returned onboard to ship.
When you do escape this area you come directly to the Bab el-Marsa where you can enter the medina. This is not for the faint hearted and you can very easily get lost and have to pay a 'guide' to get you out! The locals spot tourists at once and use this scheme to their advantage.

I checked the map beforehand and basically the Kasbah/fortress is on the right side up the hill. We walk uphill as far as possible before slipping into the medina to access the Kasbah.
We went into the tranquil oasis of the Kasbah museum and garden. All the tourist info is in Arabic or French!! We explored alleyways and passageways before retracing our steps onto the Grand Socco square and found rue de Libitere to seek out the 5 star hotel El Minzah, it's a total treasure and pure delight to enjoy refreshments on the beautiful sun terrace overlooking the Mediterranean.

The harbour side traders are there so we haggle, haggle,haggle for a pair of men's leather brown slippers. I think we got a very good deal!

If you like a variety of exhibits in an attractive setting, this museum is a good place to visit. We took a cab to it, then walked back down the hill through interesting and safe alleys. As another reviewer mentioned, the only drawback is that the placards do not have much if any English. The courtyard there is particularly pretty and peaceful.

The Dh10 entrance fee was well worth it just for wondering around this lovely former Sultan's Palace. The exhibits are written in Arabic, French and Spanish, unfortunately for us, but it was still possible to enjoy the wide range, including some Roman ruins and lovely large maps, one of which showed ancient trade routes, which was fascinating. The Kasbah is a lovely part of Tangier, on the edge of the frenetic Media, and this museum is well worth a visit.
