Tip: if exploring the Medina without a guide, stay off of the residential streets - it's much easier to fall prey to an 'unofficial guide', who might tell you this area is closed and then try to steer you supposedly to the main streets. Despite...More

The Médina is amazing! However it is easy to get lost so be vigilant of where you walk. This is also the beauty of the medina, getting lost in ceramic shops, pestered to buy rugs and visit the tannerys. It is very easy to spend...More

1. Take a map, but know that you will enjoy getting lost. 2. Enjoy the largest and oldest medina in Morocco. 3. No roads, no cars, only people and mules and donkeys 4. Don't get too annoyed by offers of "help" to find your way.
