Things to Do in Fez

Old Medina of Fès
The Fès old town may be the most touristy area but it’s also where you can discover the most genuine portrayal of this ancient Medieval town. Head through the historic gate of Bab Boujaloud to begin your quest through the bustling market place. Typical goods include everything from dried fruit to handcrafted plates and tables.
Fès Tanneries
For a real feel of Fès fabrics, find a registered guide to walk you through this age-old area of leather production. Shop owners will gladly give you an overview of the traditional process used to create the variety of goods, including dresses and bags. They might expect a sale in return, but best price is guaranteed.
Medersa Bou Inania
Completed in 1357, this extensively restored medersa is more magnificent than most. One of the few religious buildings in Fès open to non-Muslims, the elaborate Bou Inania houses a complete mosque, enchanting marble courtyard and beautifully carved olivewood ceiling. Panoramic views of the city can be enjoyed from the rooftop.

Exceptional
Artisan capital of morroco!! Beautiful ceramics and silver works for days! Non intimidating media. Chefchaouen is a must see day trip. So many amazing tileworks and doors. Riad sara was stunningly beautiful. Refreshing mint tea and tasty inexpensive food everywhere. Very friendly people.

A city which is difficult to understand, parts of the city has a not desired smell, the Medina is a labyrinth of tiny walkways, as they stated, almost 10,000. Has it's charms.

Very easy to get lost in the old town, many people want to tell you direction and ask for money, must be very careful! The leather there is cheap and beautiful

Take a good guide. If you do not plan on buying objects in Fez, explain to the guide before you go that you want to discover the arts, etc but not necessarily buy goods.

It's the whole deal, really. Just get lost in the tiny streets (which is not difficult) or take one of the colored paths through. Don't forget to visit Café Clock.

Watch out for the false guides!!! And there is nothing for free in Fez, or maybe the entrance is free... But you can leave without buying sth or giving a tip...

There is nothing like Fez back home. It's the oldest medina in the world, no cars, many cats and a complicated maze where they people who live there get lost!

Booking.com asked travelers...

Why do you recommend Fez for food?

Anything, really! The rumors have it that camel burger is great (but I'm vegetarian, and Berber Eggs are delicious, too). Buy fruit and nuts on the street!

Ask for 'tours' at the riad to share cultural experiences

Go end of May or early June. Less crowds

Incredibly medieval labyrinth
