The history of this place is amazing. We visited it with a guide and it's much better for a first time. You can then go and explore on your own the next days.

Fes is special because of it's age and the way that it's been preserved over time. There are so many shops. I would recommend going to the less touristy parts of the medina (like where the wood carvers and weavers are. the people there are more calm and it's more authentic walking those streets. The artisans are also very friendly... More

This is one of the main districts of the historical city of Fez. There are lots of Riads to visit but they are quite hard to find on your own.

This is a small medina but an interesting one. The image of the three doors is one that is worth capturing. I believe this is now a UNESCO site.

We entered the Medina through the northwest corner, near the entrance of the (closed) public garden. We soon got lost in the small streets, but what a pleasure it was to wander about without being confronted with souvenir shops, peddlers, and hords of tourists, like in the Fes El Bali Medina. We stumbled on many typical scenes: tailor shops, bakeries.... More

The whole Medina is protected by UNESCO so it is important to visit it completely in order to understand the evolution and the different periods. This zone is the most recently built inside the historic center.

Fes is a lovely place in Morocco - definitely worth visiting. Walk around in the small city center and let your feeling guide you. Be careful for all those "tourist traps" - fake guides who wants to sell you souvenirs that's "only" made here in Fes. When you travel trough Morocco you'll bump into that same kind of stories a...
