The Medina is not very big so you can easily explore it without getting lost. It feels very safe and laid-back. The unique blue colored alleyways and houses make up great photo of opportunities. Call for prayer sounds very interesting here because there are a...More

This is a small and charming medina. You have to be able to walk and go up and down a lot because it is in a mountain.

We went to Chefchaoun on a day trip from fez. We only got 3 hours to explore which is not enough time! Give yourself two days to explore properly as we felt we missed bits. Also, maybe get out and about early for the photo...More

We stayed in chefchaouen for 3 days. Visited medina few times. Recommend going in evening as cooler and more atmosphere. Wasn't hassled or pressurised into buying anything and bought some gorgeous items to take home (We drove over from Spain so could fill our boot!)....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.
