Your Shopping Tour begins in front of Café de France in Jemaa el-Fna square, where you'll meet your tour guide, before heading to the Souks where you'll visit an ancient workshop of the famous heelless leather slippers, called 'balghas', which are part of the local traditional dress. Then, the leather souk, where you'll find handmade wallets, belts, bags, shoes.. Then comes a cultural trip back in time to discover : the Farnatchi, where you can uncover the process of heating the water in traditional public steam baths, called hammams, which dates back to Roman times; the Farnatchi is also where some locals still bring their dishes to be slowly cooked in a wood-fired oven; + an age-old bakery where artisanal bread is still cooked the old fashioned way; Afterwards, you'll get inside one of the city's well-reputed herbal stores, where you can learn everything you want to know about herbs, spices and essential oils while having a Moroccan mint tea and some local pastry.
