What an amazing site, and city within a city's walls ( Medina). You need to see it to believe it. It is much better in person, lots of history and a stunning view. Hint: good camera, suitable footwear and clothing, allow heaps of time

At first sight, the medina seems like your typical souq/market area in Morocco or any large city however, the impeccable thing about Fez is that it still functions as it did in the 13-14th century. The city is still being used heavily by locals and serves as the primary location and source of commerce for everyone living in the city.... More

The old city of Fez have different parts which are frankly all beautiful. I suggest to take a guide to avoid getting lost.

If you are looking for some local souvenirs then this place is the perfect stop. Several little shops are open until early in the night.

Fez needs to be experienced. At sunset from the hills to see the twinkling lights of the largest medina in the world. At sunset on a tour in the narrow alleys to see the sunlight playing with all the shades of ochre. And the rest of the day is there to get lost and discover.

A tour of Fes is never complete with a visit to fes el-Bali. We greatly enjoyed the trip. A guide is particularly useful to highlight the sights not to be missed as well as to provide the historical backdrop.
