... ancient city. A stork had nested atop a Roman column, adding a splash of white to the scene. It was much more beautiful than I have described. Ramone dismissed it by saying we should wait until Europe, if we're impressed by this then France and Spain will blow our minds. If that's the case then Lauren has picked the correct order for this holiday.
We made it to Fez with enough time to shower and head to dinner. This was another exorbitant meal, but the ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsRiad Le Ksar de Fes
Arrived after long day traveling - ferry, train & grands taxi, had a lovely swim and lazy meal.
Friendly people. Clean. Spacious.
Lovely dinner. Breakfast.
Far out of town so ideal of you have your own transport. Taxi expensive and public transport to here atrocious. Bus stop in nearby village Ain Chaggag. Bus late, cramped and had to walk from bus stop.
