With eye-catching blue and whitewashed homes, red-tiled roofs, and intricate doors, the Medina has been painstakingly preserved.

Roman food was mostly made with locally sourced resources like olive oil, wine, soft fresh cheese, game birds, robust fruits like pears and melons, honey, and fresh herbs. New World items like potatoes and tomatoes were naturally not used. Three vegetable, fruit, and grain dishes, one meat dish, one dessert dish, as well as a variety of olives and bread, will all be served during the picnic.

During the Middle Ages, Fes was a significant hub for Islamic and Jewish culture. Its libraries and religious institutions, as well as its mosques, are well-known. As you walk along the meandering pathways and tunnels while evading donkeys carrying huge loads of goods, explore the specialist zones that divide the souk. When you are surrounded by authentic khans, madrassas, dye pits, and stalls selling fruits, herbs, and soups, as well as the sound of copper being hammered and the sound of clucking hens, it is not difficult to imagine yourself in the Middle Ages.
