  • To visit the Medina of Fez it takes days. Each entrance door reserves the unique peculiarities. Before entering you follow the advice of the hoteliers. Take an official guide or if you go independently as we have ignored the thousand proposals that will be made by boys and men of all ages to make you a guide.. They're trying to retake some DH. Some are insistent and togkierveli from the ribs tell him immediately that you do not give him any compensation.. Be prepared by nature, which is normally offered by the hotel and once you are ready to start walking, we have travelled from 7 to 8 km a day. Looking inside the Medina every pertugio.. Today there Susmo exceeded along 18 km. Surely with the guides the paths will be more linear and simpler, but the taste of DIY is unique.. Then, besides seeing what is described by several Parties, I recommend you to have lunch inside the Medina where you will find the typical Moroccan goodness.. We tried them all. And in particular I recommend to take (they do at the moment) a sandwich with aubergines, fried peppers tomatoes and onions and french fries (a mega sandwich at a euro equal to 10 DH but in some points of the route you will find them even less)..
