It is hard to find!! we found this guy call Abdulla with green eyes!! he showed all the neighborhood. It was like a 2 hours tour and it cost 12 us!! I will highly recommend that you look for him and everything is hard to find.
This was the first stop when we did a cultural tour in Fez. It was near the King's Palace. It shows how the Jewish people lived centuries ago.
We visited the mellah on our own after taking a taxi from Place R'cif for 15 dirhams. We walked in to neighborhood, walked a minute or two to the cemetery gate, paid ten dirhams to the cemetery guard (who we weren't exactly sure should have been paid, but we weren't interested in dithering), and explored the names.

Remember, there are hardly any Jews left in Fez, so the Mellah is not a Jewish quarter anymore and there is little left that is actually Jewish. Go to the Ibn Danan synagogue.
If you are in the area it is worthwhile to stop and walk through. We meet some very friendly people who agreed to let me take pictures of them. The old Jewish cemetery was interesting as were the shops. It is the quietest part of the city.
This Mellah frankly just made me sad. When I visited, it was frilled with rubbish and overgrown with weeds. There is however a good view at the top. Hopefully it will be cleaned up and returned to something that displayes respect for the people buried here.
For the ones seeking (very) narrow dark streets: that's the place to be. A very old cityquarter in which an unbelievable amount of people are living and working. The main street is "wide", bordered with shops of all kinds. People are crawling through another to reach their goal. Colours, sences.. The real heart should be visited with a local guide.
