Small town, lovely church, impressive buildings. Casbah. Lanes with coffee shops. Nice to walk around and explore. But you will be done in an hour.

Way fewer tourists than other cities so it was easier to get around without people insisting on helping you find your way and then shaking you down. Great opportunity to eat check and delicious.

People stop by this place on their way to Chefchaouen, the blue city. It is an UNESCO listed place with many historical buildings but nothing spectacular for photos, or instagram

Small enough to be manageable and feels very traditional compared to medinas in Chefchaouen, Fez and Marrakech. Few "guides" to bother you.

The Medina of Tétouan is very interesting to explore - but use a guide! You will never have orientation in this small walkways between the tiny houses. Everything is built in and on top of each other. Beautiful experience. Must see, UNESCO world heritage

This medina feels authentic thanks to the fact that it isn't touristic. Alleys are full of surprises and the architecture is awesome. Well worth a visit.

Nothing much to do in Tétouan. The Médina looks more modern than other Moroccan cities. The thing I found here that I did not find elsewhere is the bookstores. Bookstores selling books about Arabic and Islamic history are everywhere.

Tetouan would be an option but I recommend you to take a taxi to safe time. I recommend highly the medina. Just go with the flow, it's a wonderful experience if you're open to the real Moroccan life.
