Fez Travel Guide

INTRODUCTION:

Fez is well-known for its historical walled city and often it’s been compared to the walled city of Jerusalem.  Fez is the medieval capital of Morocco and a very good city of high Islamic culture. It's difficult to get your hold on Fez; this might be partially because there are three towns in Fez, the two ancient walled areas and Fes-l-Jdid (new town) and Fes-l-Bali (old town) and the more contemporary French-built Ville Nouvelle. Fez also has been one of the best saved old cities in the Arab world and also a car free urban zone. The locals of Fez use donkeys, motorcycles and carriages for way of transportation. The university of Al-Karaouine is also situated in Fez and it has been functioning continually since AD 859. It’s the historical history and greatness of the city which inspires many tourists every year to take Fez flights and visit the historical Arabian city.
