Medina of Rabat differs from medinas of Fez, Marrakesh or Essaouira. Its streets are wider, sellers are not that importunate, it’s hard to get lost and ultramodern trams are running along ancient walls. This fusion of old times and new canons is additionally mixed up by the straight Mohammed V avenue – that goes right through medina and Ville Nouvelle.
