This day is dedicated to exploring the old world of Fes, a captivating UNESCO World Heritage Site. Fes’ ancient Medina remains the city’s most significant draw – containing snaking alleyways, jumbled souks, dotted palaces, madrassas, and mosques. After breakfast in your riad, you will begin exploring this dramatic ancient city. You will walk with your local guide deep inside the narrow alleyways of the Medina and learn about the histories and highlights, including: Al Quaraouiyine University (the oldest one in the world), Attarine and Batha Museums, Bou Inania Medresa (Islamic school), and Najjarine Fountain.

Marrakech Guided Tour
