About the neighborhood
Absolutely all the major sites and sights are right near Dar Sienna. The best way to explore is perhaps take a half day official guide (arranged by us) and then go and explore yourselves. There are plenty of restaurants and cafes. Dar Sienna is ideally located in the heart of the medina, right near all the fabulous souks (markets). This is shopper's paradise. Fez medina is a UNESCO World Heritage site and the largest urban car-free zone in the world! Step back in time.... this is a medieval city, that is still fully functioning.... explore the wonderful craft shops and savour the sights, colours and sounds of this extraordinary city. Fez is the craft capital of Morocco and these are some of the craft workshops you can see: woodwork with sculpture and painting on wood, wrought iron, en...
