Though not as large as Tetouan's, this medina is very photogenic with its blue painted buildings. Of course it is a bit crowded even off season with herds of Chinese tourists. Definetely worth visiting.

My girlfriend and I have been to the Medinas of Marrakech and Fes, and neither compare to the Medina of Chefchaouen. It is in beautiful blue hues, easy to navigate and find your way around. On top of that, and most significant to us, none...More

What a gorgeous, unique town, "blue-washed" everywhere. So picturesque and unique. Nice restaurants on the square for great people watching. Vendors not annoying. Also, did a day trip to Tetouan which I thought would be same same, but completely different and worth the day.

Be prepared for many steps, lots of shopping, friendly people and good food. This place is still quite traditional so don’t just assume you can snap a photo of a local. Each meandering turn is a picture though - this place is beautiful and worthy...More

Chefchaouen, the blue town, is a lovely small place easy to visit and walk. While there are tourists everywhere taking pictures of the blue walls, stairwells, and shopping in the shops along the main streets, the town has an enchanting charm that makes it beautiful...More

Although there are no fancy restaurants or coffee shops in the Médina, the experience is incredible with all the blue surrounding you in this Médina. The way to Chefchaouen is not the safest or smoothest. But it was definitely worth the hustle.

We did the tour and saw all the main cities in Morocco. We had a bad taste in our mouth before going to chefcheaun. Most people trying to scam you or harass you, aggressive sales and just a hectic c feel overall. The people in...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.
