It is an amazing walk with narrow streets, like a labyrinth, full of colors, merchants, ancient design and motorcycles. Medina is a super noise place, crowed, authentic and a most visit in Marrakech, just keep your eyes open.

Tips: I will recommend you to go in the early evening so you will see when they turn on the lights. plus, you will have the experience to heard their music and the sound of some snakes. 

Be careful with the hash dealers and don’t ask for prices, if you will not buy, and if you will buy, you have to negotiate really good, don’t be shy to put the prices too low, in the end you will never know what is the real price.
