Fès (also spelt Fez in English) is a fascinating city - perhaps as near to the Middle Ages as you can get in a couple of hours by air from Europe. It is not an easy city to get to know, but repays time and effort spent on it. With three main sections, the city has numerous historic buildings, centred around the Qaraouiyine Mosque and some memorable souks. Fès is also a base from which to explore nearby regions, Bhalil and Sefrou to the south and the spa towns of Sidi Harazem and Moulay Yacoub, as well as sites further afield, the Middle Atlas resorts of Azrou and Ifrane. Also nearby is the other central Moroccan imperial city of Meknès, with Volubilis and Moulay Idriss close by.
