Tales from our travels

Getting there

  • Planes

    Fez-Saiss Airport (FES) is 15km away from the city. Royal Air Maroc (www.royalairmaroc.com) flies from Casablanca or Paris; Ryanair (www.ryanair.com) runs flights from Brussels, Hahn, Girona, Marseille, and Milan. Take a bus or ‘grands taxi’ (big cab) from the airport to the city centre, or book a taxi through your riad.
  • Trains

    Fez train station is situated in the Ville Nouvelle, about a 10-minute walk away from Place Mohammed V. Trains depart every two hours to Casablanca via Rabat and Meknès (there are also two overnight trains), and there are also trains to Marrakech and Tangier.
  • Automobiles

    This is a city to explore on foot.
  • Taxis

    Rather than seeking out grands or petits taxi, it’s wisest to rely on your riad’s car service – smoother than a mule or donkey ride, and less stressful than trying to hail cabs.
