“more "authentic" old city experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2012

The artisan souk is lovely and the bargaining is much less stressful than in Marrakesh or Fez. Some streets have great Rife hot off the griddle and the bustling vegetable market street will also be a great place to wander

“A must see as well”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2012

It's a great place to stroll around, taking in the everyday lives of its residents, which include businessmen walking to their offices in the centre ville, children rushing to and from a dwindling number of medina schools, dust-filled workshops staffed by artisans and tradesmen, and, of course, shopkeepers selling everything from fresh produce to wedding gowns. Depending on the time of day, it can take from 30 minutes to 1 hour to wander through the medina from avenue Mohammed V, along rues Souika and Souk as Sabbat, and up the wide rue des Consuls, a quarter reserved for diplomats from the 18th century

“Must less hassle than Marrakech”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2012

A much cleaner feeling, less hassled Medina - same stuff for sale, but here you could actually look with out constant pestering, and with much less chance of being run over by a car/motorbike. Got busier in the evening but still much more pleasant.
