MAD: Moroccan dirham
Fascinating Fez holidays 2020
The intoxicating city of Fez is one of Morocco’s best-kept secrets, and as such, can make for a very cheap holiday destination. Markets brim with textiles in every colour, the earthy fragrance of spicy street food drifts through winding and narrow streets, and intricate, colourful architecture punctuates the city’s skyline. Home to artists and craftsman for centuries, you’ll see locals working at wooden looms working silk into vivid cushions, bedspreads, scarves, and more: making the perfect opportunity to pick up a cultural bargain or two. Explore off the beaten track and you’ll find yourself in a warren of workshops, peaceful courtyards and authentic cafes touted by locals.
What’s more, Fez's status as the oldest imperial city in the country has certainly left a legacy that can be seen to this day. Donkeys pull carts laden with goods through cobbled streets, just as they once did in medieval times.
Further afield you’ll find Morocco has plenty to offer in the realms of relaxation, history, and culture. Head to Agadir for a coastline peppered with pastel coloured Arabic houses and azure waters, or to Marrakech or capital city Rabat to continue your authentic North African experience in 2020.

Your guide to Fez holidays
The natural starting point of your holiday in Fez will be exploring the captivating old Medina. The maze of shops, street-side stalls, the aromatic smell of lamb frying in spices, and sounds of traffic, people, and animals will transport to a bygone era.

Take a piece of Morocco back home and remember your unique experience in Fez.
Other points of interest in and around Fez include Mount Zalagh: a mountain from which you can gaze out over the jumble of rooftops that make up Fez or explore via mountain-bike, The Old Madrasas: one of the most stunning pieces of Arabic architecture in Morocco, and what remains of the Merenid Tombs: a scenic escape just outside of the city which makes for a perfect break from the bustle of Fez.
Take a trip to the coast to Agadir: a particularly attractive option for those looking to soak up some north African sunshine and relax by the enchantingly blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Pubs and eateries are abundant in this area, making it the perfect destination for a day trip.
