Locations to discover the imperial city of Fez and its nearby tourist spots.
Roman ruins of Voulibilis
The archaeological location of Voulubilis is possibly the best preserved Roman site of this area of North Africa. It was included in the list of the world heritage site of Unesco in 1997.
Currently only half of what is believed to be the total site of the ruins has been excavated. However, spending a long day at the site, you will notice its visitable extent of already more than 20 hectares.
Is a tourist center and a vast water park, close tothe airport of Fez.
Show Dinner Restaurant
If you like typical Moroccan food and at the same time like to be entertained by a show of native music, dances, and a representation of a Moroccan wedding, this is one of the best restaurants of Fez at proportional fair prices.
Moulay Yacoub is the name of the small village where you will find baths of sulphurous waters bearing the same name. A bathing centre with national fame where you can dive in to a municipal pool of hot sulphurous water against a reasonable price.
If you know any Moroccan staying or residing in the surroundings of the city of FEZ, invite him to accompany you as a guide, since the pool of men and women are separated. He will be grateful since it is a very appreciated visit by the in habitants of the area.
It is a strenghtening and relaxing experience.
Medina de Fez el Bali
And of course the biggest jewel on the crown is The Great Medina of Fez, founded at the beginning of the 9th century.
It is a world heritage of Unesco since 1981. With its hundreds of small and labyrinth like streets it is the biggest pedestrian zone in the world. The succession of artisanal shops knows no end; for centuries tanners still work in same way, following the same process of manufacture, carpet weavers, metal craftsmen, traditional pharmacies, fragrance and aroma shops, shops selling a thousand different things and some streets through which the only means of transport of merchandize is by animals. And finally, entering the Medina of Fez is like going back in time for two centuries.
Do not ever visit it alone. Its impenetrable and labyrinthlike structure makes it possible to visit the Medina without the help of an official guide.
