Rabat Off The Beaten Path: 35 reviews and 53 photos

Surely, as always in North African cities, I had to discover off the beaten path medina and get lost there. Hmm... if you do it for the first or the second time it's fascinating, then it becomes more and more boring. So, the medina is a must especially for the first time visitors to Morocco and for travelers who want to do some shopping (local food and craft).

In Rabat, the medina is not as much fascinating as in, say, Fez. It's more difficult to observe authentic old-style local life, there are no donkeys used for transportation, there are few local craftsmen working on a street etc. But there are pretty narrow streets with little passages, white houses and doors painted in light blue colour.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
