I have to agree with another reviewer, I think this was my favourite Moroccan city of all. The atmosphere is much more relaxed and you do not get hassled as you do in Marrakech and Fes. As my rather obvious review title suggests there is something for everyone, although we were not there to shop there was a wide range... More

The old city is small and very manageable. There are restaurants and shops ,a town square and a kasbar which is worth a visit. People are friendly and the place is nice to amble around.

Third trip to Morocco and we keep coming back to Chefchouen. Stunning Medina, hospitable people and great mountain hikes have us coming back for more. I cannot say as much for the rest of Chef but the Medina environs are remarkable. Good selection of hotels and cafes. Beautiful walks through 'Blue' streets with a picture needing to be taken around... More

One cannot claim he/she has been to Chef if he/she has not visited the Old City. The blue-colored atmosphere is something of a shifting dimension experience. Walking back to 16th century life style in itself is an experience. Many shops. Many picture-perfect scenes. Word of advice. Once you find that perfect image-taking opportunity - make sure that folks do agree... More

By far one of my favourite cities in Marocco. Really beautiful and colorful. You just have to be careful, to see it in the proper light. We've arrived in the evening, so I didn't get a chance to see the sunset.

The old city of Chefchaouen is beautiful and interesting. Be prepared to walk a lot up hill to see all the beautiful streets. Many nice restaurants and shops with beautiful carpets. There are beautiful mountains sorrounding the town. On Thursdays there is a market with mostly vegetables and sellers in traditional dresses. This is obviously a town that are used... More

This medina can't be more like all the photos you would have seen! It's beautiful and lovely to just meander around. A must see!

Beautiful place just to wonder around. No one really bothers you which is fantastic. We arrived during the festival of sacrifice so may have been a bit quieter than usual.

I love this city!!! All blue. Turquoise blue, sky blue, light blue... many colors of blue! An old lady was repainting walls, and she gave me her brush. I painted the wall! Women here are not very friendly, but nice and warm. They are just a Muslim, do not talk to us a lot... Anyway this is my favorite place.
