It is such a cute little town to be in. Very different to Fes or Marrakesh. Got to love the stairs all over the town painted in blue. It doesn't take long to explore the whole place, but it is worth spending a day or two here. It is just so quiet and lovely.

We had some trouble with touts as soon as we arrived in the medina. Just keep repeating to anyone offering things that you don't need any help from them otherwise they will pester you for money in a very aggressive way.

A city which is really worth a visit, even if you're staying many kilometers far from it! Enjoy losing yourself into the streets. You will find very nice and hidden streets where it is possible to take beautiful pictures. I recommend having a break in the main square, where there is a mosque and many cheap and good restaurants.

the first to see the city we liked so much everything is blue like sky .. Chefchaouen is very small city, so you can just walk around the city easily. Just take photos from this blue-city, having fun!

I have visited many towns in Morocco. None are like Chefchouen. The streets are clean and the buildings beautiful. The stall owners are not pushy, but very friendly. The items are much better priced than other towns and they are still willing to barter.

What a beautiful place! It's only a three-and-a-half drive from Fes, but it's really not the sort of place to visit on a day trip - at least two days is needed to explore it properly. We had a couple of days here and one was horribly wet, and the other was the sort of sunny, clear day that you... More

We stopped here for a rest after the long drive from Tangier. Most of the walls are painted blue, the ladies dresses in all sorts of colours that lent certain jolity to the atmosphere. Many little shops selling everything from food to bric a brac and narrow alleyways. The hills are steep! A good town to stretch your legs and... More

I like the ambience. Everything is blue, it looks clean and well decorated. An excellent place for taking pictures. Most of the corners are photogenic. People here are more polite. A day trip is enough to enjoy Chefchaoen. Arrive at the afternoon, depart at the afternoon next day.
