Must visit!

The most beautiful place in Marocco! The streets, the blue color all around! Worth every sacrifice! The peace and quiet, the town in general! Must visit!

This is a very unique and beautiful medina and easy to navigate through. although some sections are steep and there are stairs, the medina is relatively small and easy to find your way around. Unlike the dark medinas of the larger cities like Fes, the beauty of the buildings here are on the outside - whitewashed in blue and white... More

The medina is so beautiful to walk around and admire. Much more relaxed and quieter than the Fez medina and just so pretty. I could've wandered around all day taking endless amounts of photos of the medina and it's cute cats.

This is a small city and compared to the likes of Fes and Marrakech, the medina is tiny. It's super easy to navigate your way through and the people here seemed more disinterested in tourists. It goes without mentioning the medina is beautiful and you can't walk around a corner without wanting to stop and take another picture of the... More

Highly recommend, not for the shopping but purely for the beauty. I did go well past the Medina though, into the residential part. No matter where you go in the city, it's stunning. There's a little more to photograph (if that's what you like) in the medina since there's all the shops and all the bright trinkets to go with... More

So many beautiful doors and memorizing shades of blue to photograph. Lots of cute shops but many of the store owners are pushy and you have to negotiate. However much much better than in Tangier. The Medina is very safe, even at night. And it's easy to navigate through since it's not that big. I don't know the name of... More

Chefchaouen dates back to the 1400s. Its amazing to think that this city and the fort are 600 years old. The fort has been beautifully resotred and its worth the entry fee to go in, see the gardens and climb the tower. The tower provides an amazing view of the city and this valley. The old city is a winding... More

A few shop owners will let you look without pressure to buy. Many will thrust items at you hoping to sell. You have to be ready to bargain. Be careful not to buy camel leather bags that smell—the scent becomes overpowering later on. And don't believe the young men who tell you their restaurant is the one you are looking... More

Every corner you turn around is more picaresque than the last. It is very hilly and full of stairs but absolutely worth the trouble.
