Fascinating spot with winding alleys and very confusing. A bit claustrophobic, but wonderful to see with interesting shops, markets, cafes, etc. The restored Madrassa was stunning. Stopped at the town museum [was an old inn] -small but interesting collection [regrettably no shop or bookstore]. A...More

The Fez Medina is a very complicated walk, but don't miss it, you will eventually find your way out.

9,700 streets of history, where many Moroccans still call home, but which for the average tourist is a mind boggling assault on all the senses.. We stayed in a beautiful Riad within the city walls for a week and used it as a base for...More

The Medina was a hive of life with a good mix of everything you could imagine. I would highly recommend arranging a tour as there is so much to see but the Medina is a real labyrinth.

Spent 2hours in the Médina, it was intriguing being immersed in the smell, the colour, the history, the culture, the music and the daily life of the locals. You can purchase spices, genuine leather goods, souvenirs, scarfs, Argan oil, and clothing. You name of is...More

Easy parking beside the lower tannery and climbed the stairs for a sunlit view of the colourful dye vats - great photography, but a tough way to make a living. Then a 1-hour escorted tour of the medina led us to most of the historical...More

The first day that we were there we had a guide who took us around the highlights of the Medina and surrounding areas. This was really great because when on subsequent days we ventured out on our own we didn't feel so disoriented. You need...More
