Cheap flights to Fez
Straight out of a chapter from Arabian Nights, Fez is a medieval delight of a city that will captivate you at first sight.
When you think of Morocco, Casablanca and Marrakech are normally the two cities that spring to mind. But for a truly authentic North African experience, there really is only one place to go – Fez.
This ancient capital of Morocco was once the spiritual centre of the country and is home to one of the world’s largest and best-preserved medieval cities. The smells, sights and sounds of everyday life carry on in the ancient medina of Fez as they have for a thousand years.
If you’re after a holiday experience that comes just once in a lifetime then check out Fez. The atmosphere here will blow you away.
Try the hammam experience with the locals. Gooey brown olive soap, a rough exfoliating glove and a massage will leave you soft, pink and relaxed.
You have never seen so many pointy-toed slippers in such brilliant colours! Deep in the medina, the slipper souk enchants with its velvets and sequins, embroidery and tassels, woven buttons and jewels. Plain yellow leather babouches are for men, while women get to wear the fancy ones (Kissariat, Tala'a Kebira).
Here's the perfect day trip from Fez: explore the Roman ruins at Volubilis with their exquisite mosaics and new museum, then head for the hills and lunch in the little town of Moulay Idriss, famous for its tasty olive oil and the most important pilgrimage site in Morocco. Finish off with a visit to the nearby imperial city of Meknes.
