Fez is the imperial city of Morocco. It boasts the oldest working tanneries in the world, the first university ever built and makes for the perfect couple’s getaway, with beautiful hotels, a bustling medina, and romantic rooftop views to make your stay unforgettable.


As a couple, your stay should be fairly smooth, as there are many foreign couples who travel across Morocco together. However, if you are male and your partner is a female Moroccan citizen, you must note that you won’t be able to book a room together anywhere, unless you two are married.
