We stayed in the medina in Chefchaouen for 5 nights and honestly could have stayed longer even though it is quite small. The town is so peaceful and picturesque, the people are friendly and not pushy. I just couldn't get enough of the blue. Nearly...More

Beautiful place to be seen, the most picturesque medina I've seen in Morocco. Situated in the North of Morocco, the small town is built in an old fortress since 15th century, being very well preserved and having a wonderful blue color as statement.

This is a place to visit in Morroco ! I have been to Marrakesh,Fez and Chefchaouen and defenetly that was the most beautiful. If you like blue color you will be a dream place for you! Absolutely amazing!

The small medina of Chefchaouen is really picturesque and unique. All of the houses are painted in blue and white. The shops are small and charming and offer a lot of handcrafts from this area - but the variety is not as large as in...More

Wear a comfortable walking shoes, spend a few hours strolling in the little walk way through the village, enjoying the beauty of the blue houses. Make sure that while you are taking pictures, not disturbing the shopkeepers if you are not buying.

It took us a four hour drive from Fes to get there, but it was worth it! It is safe to say that this is one of the most beautiful places in Morocco. I've seen photos of it before,but no photo can do justice for...More

While packed with tourists, this is still a beautiful Medina. Once you get away from the tourist areas, it is even more attractive.

Quaint, old median with a low key approach. It was really nice not to be hassled. Just wander around and take photos. We rented a car in Tangier and it was a reasonable drive and afternoon visit. Driving in Morocco is fine. You just need...More

It is quite small. It depends how much shopping you want to do. The locals who have something to sell will not leave you alone for a second! They are very, very pushy. I think an hour or two is plenty of time.
