We drove in to Chefchaouen in Sepember 2014. The mountains and the blue city in the far distance, caught our attention at once. A while later, walking in the old city, the city mesmerized us with its blue beauty. Since then, I have come to know the inhabitants and surroundings well. I fell in love. This is a city forever...

This city is a photographer's dream—the colors, details of buildings, and winding alleys. On the weekend, visitors from the city and other Moroccan towns arrive in a festive mood. Young men sing and play drums, groups of happy visitors meander down the paths, and someone may even stop to talk to you in French or English.

This city is totally worth a day of your time. The city itself is beautiful. The kasbah is small but you can climb the tower for nice views. There's a wide variety of stalls and we felt no pressure to buy anything (although we did get asked a few times). The "source of aater" is pretty and interesting. Not that... More

This was our first medina in Morocco, but not the last. Chefchaouen is a small town, the medina fits its size, and is very accessible.

We enjoyed the shopping and the wandering around. It was a nice relief after the chaos of some of the larger cities we visited.

We had a great day strolling around the medina. So many interesting things to look at and discover, and there's the beautiful mountain backdrop to top it off. Very walkable and not that big (compared to fes and marrakech) so you won't get too lost.

Chefchaouen was one of our favorite places in Morocco. It is a very picturesque place with interesting souks and markets. It is a perfect size for comfortable wandering. People were all very friendly.

I saw some pics of the Blue Town and knew I had to go there. I drove 8 hours from Marrakech to see it and flew back to London via Tangier and it was totally worth it. First of all I loved that you could walk through the Old Town, browse the shops and not feel harassed. Totally different feel... More

We loved this city and it was our favourite on our whole Morocco trip. The colours are literally stunning. Try to get there before sunset and hike up the side of the mountain next to the medina wall and the river where ladies wash clothes. You will get some stunning views of the city and the colours were simply amazing... More

This is a must do on any itinerary. It is left off most classic tours because its a little to far out of the way but it is well worth the drive. Amazing blue colours throughout the old city. Not to be missed.
