Chefchaouen Old City is well preserved, calm and shining city. The salesmen and the people on the streets are different from the rest of North Africa and they don't attack you to get your money with the most low quality goods. To take nice pictures I would advise to walk to end of the city, pass the fountain and walk... More

We spent 4 days here in October 2014. Nice city and not as manic as Fez for hagglers. Spent a day up the mountains and made the summit of Jebel El Kella in 31c. Just a few hours walk from the North gate of the city. Just learn to say "La, shukran" (No, thank you) "Mish eise hagga" (I don't... More

For some time I've been wanting to visit the blue city. An unexpected gap in work allowed me pack my bag and explore this charming little northern Moroccan city. It lived up to its reputation and way, way more!! A walk through the medina and souqs is a great way to spend a few hours and experience Moroccan souqs. Not... More

We had many lovely experiences in medinas across Morocco. Our first was in Marakkesh which was confusing and lovely all at once. The medina in Fez was huge and comprehensive. The one in Chefchaouen was by comparison small and low key. It was refreshing not to worry about being hustled (part of the experience, I know. I liked it, but... More

Compact but ok for a days wanderings. Lots of sweet and better value cafes and restaurants off the main square.

Just go to Chaouen and see for yourself, its a breath of fresh air if travelling in Morocco. The blue medina in a fold in the mountains, views are great from all over town.

People friendly and gentle. Not pushy as in cities. Looms busy making rugs. Mostly textiles on sale, along with jewellery and metalwork. Lots of steps to climb with vistas at every turn.

What a experience. The only way to really see the city is to walk it a few times. We really enjoyed seeing all the different shades of blue. The color blue was considered to repel mosquitos by the Jewish settlers who arrived after being expelled from Andalusia. The people are very friendly.

We loved our time here. It was like two days in another world. Fun shopping, beautiful buildings (that blue!), gorgeous surroundings made for a unique experience. Highly recommended.

Adorable! Book at least three days. Yes its not too big but you will find so many new beautiful spots everytime you go out. Take your time and enjoy. Make sure you climb up to the City walls. At the end in the last tower is a lovely man creating djelabas. Best photos early in the morning without tourists and... More
