Fez

by Bobbyjoel

what are some exciting things to do in Fez morocco I am planning a trip there this fall with some of my students.

Re: Fez

by TheLongTone

Just wandering the streets of Fes is exciting enough. It's an astonishing city.

I agree, but you might want to think about getting a guide to start you off and get you orientated.

Also, think about a day out to Volubilis and Moulay Idriss Zerhoun.

How old are these students?

I found Borg Nord interesting. It is one of two castles (borg) that were built outside the city of Fes, not to protect the populace from invaders but for the king to control the populace of Fes.
Its also has an arms and militaria museum. I had the place to myself last time I was there, it seems to be off the beaten track for tourists.

Hi, also check out the travel pages that us VTers put together - info on what to see etc is provided for in the Travel guide section with our travel pages so not just question and answering stuff here in the forum - theres also a rating system which helps acknowledge tips and pages that have been helpful.
I would also recommend looking up VTer Travolta159 who lives in Fez and very keen to meet visitors to Fez.

all the best.

So many things to do in Fes! If you are with a group of students it might be nice to do something hands on and cultural like a cooking class. Cafe Clock offers some great workshops. Check out www.cafeclock.com. There is a new programme of homestay opportunities and also culturevulturesfes.com has some great cultural programmes available.

I would recommend you get in touch with Mike at Cafe Clock as the previous poster said.
He can help arrange Caligraphy classes, Moroccan cooking classes and belly dancing.
In addition I would arrange a tour through the medina. You can get lost but most people don;t wander off that far and exploring is 1/2 the fun.

The tanneries located near R-Cif are also a great part of the medina to discover.

Try to do a daytrip to Meknes and include Voloubilis and Moulay Idriss. Again Mike could help as he also has accommodation there.

Travel Tips for Fes

See a medersa (Islamic student dormitory)

by Venturingnow

Medersas are located throughout each district in the medina. There are over 300 distics, thus there are 300 medersas as well as 300 bakeries, baths, wells, mosques, and other necessities. Each district has one of every necessity. Anyway, a medera is like a dormitory for students studying Islam. There's a well for drinking and cleaning, and then rooms for sleeping. The architecture is really nice inside.

Bring warm clothes and a hot water bottle!

by 78Eva

I got to Morocco in the winter and was quite surprised how cold it was. During the day, in the sun, it got warm even in January. The orange trees were blossoming, and you could sit outside with a good book.
However, once the sun disappeared, it got very cold, especially inside the houses which rarely have heating. Every night I would go to bed with a hot water bottle which saved me since stupidly enough I had only brought little summer nightgowns.
So, hot water bottle, winter coat, warm clothes and pyjamas.

Also: bring books if you like to spend time reading. I could not find good bookstores in Fes, at least not ones that had books in English or German, only French. In Casablanca, I once went to a used bookstore ans stocked up.

Bus

by JamalMorelli

Copied from http://wikitravel.org/en/Fes

The main bus terminal ("gare routiere") is just outside the old city on the north side, near the Ain Zleten entrance. Grands taxis (inter-city taxis) can also be obtained here.

Moroccan cooking course in Fes

by linzmnm

I have lived in Fes for 2 years now and I often have friends who come and visit. After a few days of touring the sites, they try to find other things to do. The most successful thing that I have found for them to do is cooking courses with a guy named Lahcen. They are fun and reasonably priced, and a great way to experience the culture and the cuisine. The cool thing is that the courses include a trip to the local market, which is not frequented by tourists (since tourists don't tend to buy their groceries!!). I would highly recommend this. Everyone I know who has taken lessons with Lahcen has loved them.
His site is www.fescooking.com

Get lost! part two - landmarks

by JamalMorelli

Getting lost in Fes is one of my favorite activities in this great city...

One more strategy...
Follow landmarks back to your hotel (or away from it)...
