UNESCO lists the Fes medina as a World Heritage site, and in many ways the simple joy of exploring the old city is the greatest attraction Fes can offer. From the gates at Bab Bou Jeloud and Bab Rcif, streets wrap themselves up and down the slopes of the medina. Lively food markets give way to artisanal quarters, while the Kairaouine Mosque and Bou Inania Medersa speak of a centuries-old religious tradition. There’s relaxation to be had among the bustle, from strolling through quiet gardens to getting a deep scrub in a hammam. Finish off the day’s adventures with dinner at one of the city’s fashionable riad boutique hotels.
