Undeniably fascinating, Fez stimulates the senses with its haunting yet beautiful sounds, visual splendor, and evocative smells. The most ancient of the imperial capitals and the most complete medieval city of the Islamic world, Fez is reminiscent of a city suspended in time, unfazed by the constantly evolving world outsides of its walls. Fez owes nothing to the Western world, save electricity. Time spent in Fez will reveal much about the sophistication of the Moroccan artisan, providing an unparalleled learning experience to those who cross its path. Your morning will be spent visiting the Medina. Our specialized guide will take you on a historic discovery of the city of Fez starting at the King’s Palace and its Meshwar with ramparts and majestic gates. Adding to this splendor, Fez is an open medieval workshop and market where you can shop for any conceivable item in your mind. The city where you can shop till you drop. Your tour is mainly designed for historic sights in Fez but can be tailored to your liking and interest to visit the best of Fez.

Next, on your walking historic tour, you will explore Fez el Jadid quarter, a 15th-century citadel with all its Moorish maze architecture and medieval glory. Visits to Sufi zaouias, mosques, synagogues, and mausoleums of holy Rabbis will be the highlights of this part of town. Then, we will drive down to the Merinides hill to visit their necropolis. Here you will enjoy the best panoramic view on the old walled Medina of Fez, brimful with its countless minarets to call for the prayers in a city that has responded to these calls for 12 centuries. Drive down the hills to the gate of Bab Guissa to leave your vehicle and enter an ancient world. Your walking historic visit of Fez Medina starts right here. Fez has preserved its Medina as it was centuries ago. Not even a bicycle is able to be used as a tool for transportation. Only donkeys, mules, and horses are able to help to move all that the city produces and needs as supplies. The first guilds you will immediately encounter on your Medina walking tour are the cobblers, the saddles, and blacksmiths interlaced by some caravansaries for tribesmen who come from the surrounding areas to trade and supply their needs. Down the hill of the Medina walking visit, you will walk to Juteya, you will encounter all sorts of crafts but noticeably carpenters and leather workers as one of the traditional tanneries is not far. This walk will lead you to El Ashabine square with its variety of activities. From there, you will find your way to Sagha Square which will lead you to Attarine then Souk el Henna and the Mausoleum of Moulay Idris, the founder of Fez. Continue your walking tour of Fez, you will visit the Nejjarine square with its famous fountain, its guild of carpentry and the museum of folk arts at the Fondouk Museum.

You will proceed on your walking Fez tour to the tannery and on to visit the great Mosque university of Al Quarrawiyyine, passing by Shemma’ine, the market of dried fruits. After that, you will visit the Medersa Attarine and walk to Sbetryyine, a guild of bookbinders, which will lead you to the Seffarine Square, where the tapping of metalworkers is still deafening passerby as it was the case for centuries in medieval Fez. You will break for lunch then continue exploring the marvels of Fez Medina. These will highlight the Dyers souk, Foundouk Tetouan, and the shrine of Sidi Ahmed Tijani, a Sufi imam who played a great role in introducing Islam in black Africa.
