experience
Mederssa El Bouanania Fes
This madrasa is definitely one of the highlights of Fes and should not be missed. This establishment that once served as an educational facility and congregational mosque is now open for public viewing. The best part? Despite the madrasa’s beautiful architecture and tile work, it is much less popular than the bigger mosques and palaces in Marrakech. At one point during our visit we actually had the entire place to ourselves!

The Ruined Garden
After 2 weeks in Morocco this beautiful restaurant was definitely an all time favorite. The grounds of the restaurant serve as a quiet oasis in the midst of Fes’ madness. The food here is served tapas style, with many of the dishes costing as little as 20 MAD ($2 USD). We found that five dishes split between two people was more than enough!

lodging
RIAD VERUS
Riad Verus is a hostel located within the Medina walls of Fes. I have stayed in over one hundred hostels all over the world and Riad Verus was definitely one of the most unique. The hostel is centrally located, prepares an amazing breakfast with fresh squeezed orange juice, and has a lovely common area for meeting fellow travelers. I definitely recommend giving this spot a try if you are looking to stay centrally while on a budget.

Cafe Clock
I usually like to try a ton of new restaurants, but we loved Cafe Clock so much that we ate here three times! The menu offers a bit more variety than your standard Moroccan restaurant and the views from the rooftop are great! I recommend trying out the falafel plate and the assorted tapas. They are also famous for their camel burgers, however I am not a big meat eater myself.
