Fez: immerse yourself in history
Ancient, authentic and bursting with life, Fez is Morocco’s oldest imperial city. If Marrakech seems a little aloof, Fez takes you by the hand and leads you on an unforgettable adventure.
You could happily spend a day in the sprawling, World Heritage-listed medina, bartering and eating delicious local cuisine. But make time for a few of the lesser-known gems. Medersa Bou Inania is the finest of Fez’s theological colleges and an outstanding example of Islamic architecture. Or, as an antidote to the cramped alleyways, the Jardin Jnan Sbil gives you plenty of room to rest tired feet and plan your next move.
With so much hustle and bustle, it pays to choose a hotel that’s a little removed from the city. Hotel Sahrai more than fits the bill. Elevated above it all, this luxury hotel has a stunning pool, a timeless design and a Givenchy spa.
