First, head into the medina to explore the heart of the city. Fes was founded during the 9th century and has been a seat of government, philosophy, medicine, and religion ever since. The 2,000-year-old medina is still working as the centre of this ancient Arab city. See donkeys and mules laden with goods trawl alongside buyers through the ancient market.

Get a jolt of caffeine with a strong coffee at a local cafe. Visit the city's famous tanneries and see the brightly colored honeycomb vats used in the process. Then, explore the souq and try your hand at bargaining for souvenirs.

End your day with 2 Moroccan craft workshops. First, learn about the cobalt blue Fassi ceramics and discover how the intricate patterns are made before replicating the century-old patterns yourself. Head to a carpet-making workshop to work with a traditional loom. Educate yourself on the intricate process of carpet-weaving. See what makes a quality rug, and appreciate the craftsmanship that goes into the process.

End the day in a central area, where you can choose to go back to the souq or to your hotel.

Note:
Children age 5 and under are not permitted. Tips and gratuity for your guide are not included and left to your discretion. Morocco can be considered a liberal Muslim country as many Moroccan women do not wear headscarves. However, Morocco is very conservative by standards you may be accustomed to at home, so you should dress accordingly. Shoulders, cleavage, and knees should be covered at all times. Wearing shorts (men and women), low-cut tops, and showing midriff is not recommended–it will restrict your entry into religious buildings and family homes, and is considered disrespectful to the local culture. Long, light-colored, lightweight sleeved shirts, trousers, and skirts are respectful. They also keep you cool in the heat and protect you from the harsh sun.
