We set off for the main square, it should have been a simple 20 min walk, but some friendly locals took us on a 45 min "shortcut" he, we soon realised was totally drunk. However getting shot of him was not as easy as being picked up by him. A little money persuaded him to leave us alone. The rest of the trip was wonderful the sights and sound will be remembered for ever. The contrast between the incessant car horns and the quiet of the Bahai Palace or the Badi Palace or the Jardin Marjorelle is quite amazing. For me three days was enough, I would go back to Morocco and I would love to visit the atlas mountains that provided a snow covered backdrop whilst we were there. Well worth the money.

The Medina and Square aren't authentic and are geared to tourists. Most of the stuff in the Medina is tourist-grade but we got a rug we loved. The combination of tourists, donkey carts, motorbikes and cars is unpleasant

This is the souk of Morocco. To navigate it you need either a guide or a map to get you to a particular destination.

There is a store with fixed pricing which had a large selection of everything you can imagine. Ask the locals.

WHAT a place - it's like everything and nothing that I've ever experienced. The first thing you notice are the sounds of the place, drums, instruments of all kinds, bells, shouting, haggling - what a buzz. I would have enjoyed it much more if I'd have gone with someone likeminded. Hubby is a bit reserved and didn't enjoy the forcefulness of the place, me I LOVED all the haggling, bartering and bantering with the stall holders, like a good old English market with spice :D Can't add anything that hasn't already been said, the other reviews sum it up perfectly. Better for ladies to take a wrap/shawl as shoulders/cleavage attract the wrong attention. Alcohol only available on upper terraces (Kozy Bar lovely).
