Pretty, but so many people trying to hussle and harass you and getting aggressive, that even as seasoned travellers it really dampened our spirits. You feel like you can't go out after dark because it means walking through lots of enclosed alleyways with loitering undesirables.

With over 9000 alleyways, the medina or old arab quarter in North African towns and cities, is a fascinating place to visit. I found the medina in Fes to be more authentic than Marrakech. Real life is happening inside these ancient walls so mixed in with the tourists are women shopping, men selling and kids playing and taking the bread to be baked at a community oven. There are two main shopping arteries, Talaa Sghira and Talaa Kebira, which are lined with shops selling leather, rugs, pottery, clothes and souvenirs. At the top of the street you will find the food stalls which are not for the faint of heart. They sell whole live chickens, slabs of meat along with fruits and vegetables, dried fruit and nuts, etc. There is a lot to see in the medina and I would recommend getting a guide to show you all of the highlights. Foreigners can't enter the mosques but you can peek in. Find a rooftop cafe to escape the hustle and bustle of the streets below.

Amazing place to visit and learn the history of how people lived back in the 13th centuries
Very nicely designed and constructed back those days
