You're going to love Fez
Fes was the medieval capital of Morocco and dates from 789 AD. It is home to the world's oldest university and is home to the best preserved old city in the Middle East and North Africa.
Fez is great for culture, art & sightseeing.
Take a cooking class or workshop from a local artisan to try your hand at brass etching, bookbinding, drum making or more. While you can book this in advance, you can also find these experiences at local riads.
