Qasbah En Nouar, Fes, Morocco
Located in Fes's medina, Restaurant Sekaya is a great introduction to Moroccan cuisine, particularly for wary travelers. The ambience is great, the food is affordable and flavorful and they have what I believe to be the best mint tea in town. This...

Fes El Bali, Fes, Morocco
The Medina in Old Fes, or Fes el Bali, is a bucket list experience. Enough beautiful, noisy, smelly, tasty anachronisms to give you whiplash. Abandon your need for control and get lost (its easy) as you wander through the modern 12th century. Just...

Dar Tazi, Fes, Morocco
To immerse yourself in the life of a Moroccan housewife, take a stroll through the fresh-produce market of R’cif, which winds through the lower part of the Fes medina. Plan to arrive by 10 a.m. when the market really...

Some travelers are exhausted by the haggling in the souks of Morocco, by the barely-organized chaos of the medinas. In Fes, the stunning mosaic tile creations that are so typical all over the country can be bought directly from the artisans who...

The Nejjarine Museum of Wood Arts and Crafts in Fes, Morocco is interesting enough ... but be sure to climb the last flight of stairs to the rooftop for a view like this!

Fes, Morocco
Everywhere I went in the Fes medina, I saw these numbered boxes painted on the walls. I had no idea what they were all about until later. I learned that these are election boxes. Morocco has a multi-party political system and each party is...

9 Derb Lamsside, Fes 30200, Morocco
Staying in The Medina in Fes, Morocco is one of the most amazing experiences travel can offer. One of the surprises was the people and how helpful they were. Our Riad owners arranged for baggage handling to our waiting taxi. A local touch that...

Preserving food in salt is a centuries old method that crosses cultures. In Morocco, they salt preserve all sorts of vegetables as well as lemons. Every market you go to, you see containers and jars packed with all sorts of preserved veggies....

Fes, Morocco
Probably one of my favorite souvenirs from Morocco are the mini tagines I bought from a friend's shop and a pottery factory we visited in Fes, where these mini tagines were also available in what I've been told are the city's emblematic blue and...
