The medina is like others in Morocco. Narrow streets full of small shops.... selling a range of goods all at negotiable prices. We liked it as the shopkeepers in general were not pushy, they were friendly with the children, and it was not madly busy like medinas in other more popular cities. We liked the fact they give paper bags... More

I found the medina in Rabat really nice to wander around.There are some tourists,not very many when I visited,and also many ordinary people doing their shopping. I love seeing what people buy and eat,fantastic collection of interesting vegetables.Unlike Marrakech nobody hassles you to buy stuff you dont want,and as a lone woman I felt perfectly comfortable.

A small (compared to Fes or Marrakesh) but very historic médina, with everything one would expect to see. I like it over the large medinas as it is calm, compact and functional. Once can find everything there, it is still lively with all kinds of shops and artisanal goods. I am biased since this is the medina I used to... More

The medina (old city) of Rabat has lot of shops that sell leather handcrafts, and other authentic Moroccan souvenirs at good prices. Make sure you bargain for the best price with the sellers

Our Riad was in the Medina and it all felt perfectly safe. We were staying near the Souk, which was interesting with lots of local shoppers and shops and stalls with all sorts of different goods for sale, from spices to knickers! Rue des Consuls is the part where the jewellery, pottery and leatherware shops are mostly situated and Rue... More

Always great to wonder in it's small streets, and look at the architecture of ancient houses and riads, great place for shopping, more street cleaning won't hurt maybe ...
