Where did you hear that is not true?
If you stick the name (riad, not raid!) into google and click you'll see it's within the medina area very close to the outside wall and somewhere that can be accessed by car.
Have a look also at http://www.fez-riads.com/medina__maps.htm
Thanks Tim....I'll have a look...
Tim...is it in a good spot to go exploring from on foot? I have never been before. Is the medina so big that you cannot explore it all on foot or is it all walkable from RIAD AHLAM ??
You cannot really explore the medina of Fes on anything but foot (well, bicycle perhaps)! Enjoy your visit.
"Is it all walkable from RIAD AHLAM"
Did you look at the map link I provided?
Yes I did Tim... However having never been there I have no idea of what the map really means in terms of distance and walkability. Maps don't tell me much personally...especially scale. I can look at a map of paris and if i have never been there I have no visual idea of the distances involved.
You obviously have been there and have a picture in your mind as well as the map...I don't..
I thank you for it though.
What about the map in your guidebook?
The medina is not large, however the slopes are steep when coming back up them, one option is to walk to the bottom and get a petit taxi back.
