<b><u><font size=3>FEZ</b></font></u>

Another charming aspect of MOROCCO is the interesting blend of ancient culture and cosmopolitan living. The oldest of the Moroccan imperial cities, <b>FEZ</b> is arguably the symbolic heart of Morocco. With about 9,400 labyrinthine streets and alleys, the <b>Medina of Fès el-Bali (Old Fez)</b> is one of the largest living medieval cities in the world. The gates and walls that surround it make it even more magnificent. Close to the main gate is the beautiful <b>Medersa Bou Inania</b>, a theological college built in 1350.

Another attraction that you shouldn't miss are the <b>tanneries</b> i.e. places where leather is prepared and painted in a traditional way.

When I was in <u><b>FEZ</b></u>, I felt like I've taken a time machine and had gone back to the days of Sinbad! <u><b>FEZ</b></u> is just so beautiful: <b>DO NOT FORGET</b> to visit their famed:-
<li> <b>Souk</b></li>
<li> <b>Royal Palace</b></li>
<li> Try their <b>Moroccan Mint Tea</b>. <i>Yummy.</i> </li>

For more details on this ancient Moroccan city, please click onto '<u>FEZ</u>' (under the Travelogue section) here on this page - found on the top right hand corner. Thanks!
