More manageable size medina than marrakesh- you're always near to a main street less lost possibilties Similar souks - didn't have energy to buy much Usual enthusiastic locals wishing to talk to by asking string of questions Keen opiate user tried to help us get a cab but deterred the cabs There are small blue fall apart cabs which can...

You go back in time when you visit the old medina and its souks, smelling the spices, tasting the delicious local bread and savoring pactela and tagine. A real bonus was seeing places where Bourne and Bond movies were shot in the medina and kasbah in Tangier.

After wandering around for a bit you can get your bearings. It's a lovely place to get lost and discover little shops and all manner of businesses from bakeries to barbers.

We wandered around the old city and were not disappointed. Architecture, atmosphere, history, culture, colour and personalities abound, and all you have to do is observe and absorb. We love this place.

Once away from the obvious tourist traps it's easy to find the traditional old shops. Some good quality merchandise. Finding the old museums is a must.

The Medina and the Kasbah of Tangier are very interesting sights for first time visitors of Morocco but they cannot be compared with medinas found in Fes , Meknes or Marrakesh . Still worth a tour though !

The medina and kasbah are the old areas of Tanger and are what makes the town worth many repeated visits over the last four and a half decades. Touristy in many parts yet locals shop here too.

the easiest medina to walk through. so compact and small. but, what makes it interesting is in the middle, at the end of the medina, you have a small square, they even have movie theatre there...at the entrance, they have a small board, provides you with the information, some walking path you can choose..so informative and helpful ;-)
