Our first day in Fez was spent with a tour guide. He took us all around and showed us many interesting things. We saw a traditional Caravan Serai where in centuries past the traders through the desert would put up their camels. We also visited an old building that must have been the house of a very rich family but... More

It was not our first visit and were very happy to observe some newly renovated monuments inside this zone.

Wonderful eccentric and confusing medina with many artisans selling hand crafted goods. Carved doors hiding magnificent riads. People are courteous and helpful. The place feels safe even at night. Getting lost is part of the fun. just ask a local the way when you give in. They show you the way with a smile.

In a nutshell it is like a labyrinth from myths. But without monsters. In medina you can feel the life pulsating through narrow streets. Action is everywhere around: in the streets, in the shops, in dar alleys, in the windows. During solo explorations for couple of days I haven't noticed any angry people. Just after a while "street guides" become... More

This is an amazing maze of alleyways that takes you back centuries with an authentic feel. Unlike Marrakech, only donkeys and people allowed (no motos or bicycles!). Shops are authentic with souks containing everything from rugs to spices. Food can be magnificent also.

The medina is an amazing maze of alleyways and shops and markets. Lots of shops and restaurants will be quite aggressive to try to get your business so be prepared to say no or adjust your attitude. We found it a bit overwhelming at times.

I have been visiting the Fes Medina for 50 years. Never have I seen it so clean and beautiful. The young toughs and phony guides who made life miserable for visitors are no longer in evidence. During our last visit, my husband almost came to blows with two of them. The alley ways are no longer full of donkey pats... More

What a great place to people watch, just something to see, hear and smell every moment. The real historical Morocco.
