I left part of my soul in this place. It si so blue, I think they paint it for touristic reasons and they are right in this. A small town and lovely. The food there is not good compared to other places. Many people refused to be photographed and others accepted. The toe=wn is small and u can discover it... More

From Casablanca to the blue city 9 hrs in bus with a 9moths old baby wasn't easy but totally worth it, The great experience started from the momento we took the first taxi, the driver was incredible friendly and helpful. Our hotel was inside the blue city. If you have a baby with you, you definitely will need a baby... More

We thought there would be a few streets of blueness but there are hundreds. This is one of those places you see online before you go and think it can't possibly be that picturesque....it is. And then some. Be prepared for lots of photo stops. We found that early morning before 10am was best as the streets are deserted. People... More

Chefchaouen was the #1 spot that I wanted to visit in Morocco and I wasn't disappointed....except for the weather! Unfortunately, my time there was rainy. The locals were happy as they needed rain but it was a disappointment to have traveled so far and not see this quaint city in dry weather! This city is well worth all the effort... More

This was a wonderful place to visit... a must see in Morocco. Everyone was really nice, vendors were not pushy and the blue color everywhere was delightful. Definitely a great place.

From afar and from the guide books, Chefchaouen looks like a pearl: a blue-washed village draped onto the side of a pair of hills, from which it gets its name. As we approached, I was reminded of Cassis or parts of Provence. But then we were dropped into the main part of the old town, the Medina, a not terribly... More

My friends and I visited the blue city and we had an amazing time! The place is more beautiful than you see in the pictures. People are super friendly, shopping is plentiful, and this place just makes you feel you're in heaven - if heaven had a lot of stray cats :)

Blue is the main theme. I call it the smurfs village. Overall, enjoyed the stay and the food. A day or two is more than enough.

This once very quiet little town in the Rif mountains has been seeing more tourists in the past years but still offers one of the most beautiful medinas of morocco. It's small streets and alleys, houses and walls are all blue washed, the people in general are very relaxed (might be because of the "kif" - marijuana - sold almost... More
