I spent a day on this striking, blue-washed city, but the place deserve that you stay at least 2 days. Now, I have a good excuse to come back :-) Start your visit from the top of the Medina and walk your way down. Get...More

I love this city and it's just amazing. The blue colors are breath taking, the cascades, the shops and the bazars are divine. Loved everything, from dressing up in traditional clothing that did cost only 5 Dirhams and the view of the mountains where the...More

We enjoyed the visit in the blue town. There are many stairways which isn’t ideal for a family with pushchair. Otherwise, the people are friendly and don’t push you to buy anything. The call from the mosques gives it the lovely ancient touch. Highly recommended

The old medina gives you many options and ways to walk up on the small cute streets and research traditional cuisine and of course 1000 of sweet shops pushing their articles on the street so you don't even need to enter. Smaller than Marrakesh souk,...More

Perhaps they had made their money for the day but our walk through the Chefchaouen Medina lacked the usual pressure to buy that is so often the experience in Morocco. Everything here is painted in various shades of blue presumably to create a suitable and...More

Be prepared for lots of fancy annoying tourists. And a local population that is sick of them. Fes and Essaouira have much more authentic medinas. Though if you want a clean and touristy one this is it.

I enjoyed my stay in Chefchouen. For all of the reports of tours and hassle I experienced none of that as a solo female. No one followed me or harassed me, no one pushed for me to buy kif, even the henna ladies take a...More

This mountain town is compact, crowded and congested. The narrow streets make it difficult to get by. But the more you explore the town, the crowd gets lesser and you start enjoying the place. Spend about half a day to explore this old medina and...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.
