The real experience starts in the endless labyrinthine back streets of the old fortified city, the so called medina, through which are literally flying cars, bicycles (sometimes carrying more than three kids), dogs, minivan, pick-ups, donkey carriers and loads of people. But the scariest vehicle are the mopeds seating up to four people (always without helmets) driving at full speed with no precaution at all... unbelievable!!
- The Main square Jaamal El Fna gets very crowded in the late afternoon with locals and tourists and it converts into a lively center of food stalls, snake charmers, story tellers and dancers. Don't miss out the freshly squeezed orange juice for 2 Dirham (the Moroccan currency; 10 € = 1 MAD)... it's divine!
- The Koranic school Madrasa Ben Youssef: a 14th century religion school settled deep in the heart of the old center which main building is an astonishing piece of rich decoration made out of carved wood and stone engravings.
- The El Badi Palace: remnants of an ancient palace. Climbing up the wall you can have a great view over the city.
- The Saadian Tombs which I did not see but I have been told are worth a visit.
- The stinky tanneries in the Tanners Quarter: where tanners treads and rinses the skin in large pool of dye and pigeon excrement and other artisans scrap and stretch it to let it dry.
