I would see beautiful leather shoes one minute, then a goats head on a spike the next. It wasn't as glamorous, but it was richer in so many ways.

If you're flying internationally into Morocco, Fes has it's own airport 'Fes Saiss' which has just had a bit of a make over. There are regular, daily flights to Fes from London through the likes of Ryanair and Air Arabia Maroc which I flew with.

The airport is located around 17km out of the city, so you will have to organise a taxi or a pick up from your hotel to reach the old Medina.
