Medina in Chefchaouene was a little bit different with the others, because you mingled altogether with the local people. It’s very interesting and it made its own unique experience for tourists. So authentic, that is why I fell in love with this small blue city. Follow the pace, take your time, enjoy the scenery, it will bring the warm feelings... More

Stroll through medina the without being harassed… much. Specialties here include hand knitted items, design your own leather, homemade soaps and lotions. Of course, there is plenty of selection of imported items you can find anywhere. Be sure to bargain on the price.

Just adored wandering these alleyways and streets. Be prepared to have your socks knocked off with its beauty. The blue is crazy gorgeous and no filter is needed in photographs. The median itself is much calmer and softer than Marrakech or Rabat and just walking is a delight.

We visited many medinas in Morocco, this is one of the few we were mot constantly boddered for money and pretend guide services. This is a very touristic place and I think the locals have realized that constantly boddering the tourists is not smart; nonetheless, I must point out that it was December, it was raining and we were walking...

Chaouen, which is call is very interesting city. Its in the middle of the mountains, close to Fes and Tanger. The medinia is placed in a higher location and its beautiful. All painted with a lot of shades of blue, the medina is charming and invites to explor without any map the old city. Outside the medina, Chaouen its a... More

There aren't many places that we can walk freely without worrying been lost in Morocco. This place with careful plan you can wonder about for hours surrounding by blue walls and colourful small shops. This place is small and segregated- the worst case scenario you can pay a local to get back to your hotel (10mad) would do. The goods... More

And beautifully painted in blue. This medina can be visited in a few hours only and leaves you enough time to relax at Chez Hicham for a vegetable couscous or at Marisco for a goat specialty

Not sure how this is very different from the old city, but yes it is stunning and well worth the visit. Remember that if the floor is painted blue that it's a dead end!
