I spent just a few hours in the Tetouan medina, but it's incredibly beautiful. From the outside, the sight of the white houses on the hill is gorgeous. The medina itself is very beautiful, interesting architectonical elements, easy to navigate as compared to other medinas,...More

Have visited a number of Medina's across Morocco. The Medina was not overly big and there were very few tourists but a number of people who wanted to be your guide. Nice enough but not overly special even though a UNESCO site.

Its a 50 minute ride. So there is plenty of time. Personally, I would enjoy Tetouan more than Tangier. More "old" Morocco.
