Chefchaouen Day Trip from Fes Itinerary
Fes Desert Trip's driver, will pick you up from you Riad or Hotel at 8 am for the fascinating drive to the North of Morocco for you to explore the unique and beautiful small city of Chefchaouen, the famous "Blue City" of Morocco. You will drive through the verdant forests, broad, lush valleys, deeply cut gorges and towering mountain peaks that surround the city of Chefchaouen.
Start your Chefchaouen day tour by Wandering through the narrow streets, painted in blue and white, of this peaceful place founded in 1471 by Moulay Ali ben Moussa as a kasbah, or walled fortress which you can still visit today. It has a more recently added and very picturesque garden too. Moving through the blue alleys, with the bright sun reflecting from the walls is a feeling somewhat like walking under a shallow blue sea, an amazing sensation.
The markets at the blue city of Chefchaouen are full of genuine, good quality local handicrafts, with styles not found elsewhere in Morocco; broad brightly coloured 'sombrero' like hats, decorated with ornamental thread, hand-woven blankets in bright patterns and a range of woollen clothes. The town square, surrounded by restaurants and cafes where you may be able to sample the delicious local goat's cheese is another place to enjoy, sit down, relax and breath in the rich atmosphere.
There are many other monuments to look at in Chefchaouen, including the 15th century Grande Mosque and the Place Mohammed park with it's stunning views of the Rif Mountains.
At the end of Your Chefchaouen day trip your Fes Desert Trip's driver will drive you back to Fes and dropped off at your Riad or Hotel.
