Worth of a visit on foot

You could get around on foot. Very big old city to see. The traditional life to Tunisians that you could look and enjoy. Fusion of Islamique and roman culture.

The only good thing about the ribat is the view from the top of the tower. The ribat itself has nothing much to see. 7 dinar for the view? Meh.

It was interesting and the view was great. You can see Sousse from up there. The medina is amazing, we walked a lot, we went to the weekly markat, that is a must see

Well worth a look. Great view from the tower. Well kept and interesting to see. Very cheap entry price. Took some great photos as visited during ramadan and were the only two people there. This was the same every tourist attraction we went to. Praise the boring tourists who roast like a chicken by the pool all day!

A very peaceful (when no tour groups about) place to visit with absolutely stunning views across the city and ocean. Difficult steps to climb, particularly in the tower but well worth it. A great place to chill out and take it all in.

I enjoyed the visit unfortunately it was closed off due to earthquake damage in March 2014. But it was still amazing to see especially if your a monty Python fan ( it's where some of the filming took place)

If you want a few hours away from your hotel in Tunisia visit the centre of sousse. It really is another world walking around the madina and visiting the museum with its task tower where you can get some great photos of the the whole city.

Nice to escape the market. We went as a party of four and we were the only people in here. It definitely feels as though this is a work in progress. Although we couldn't actually see any building work going on the place appears smartened up waiting for the next phase which I guess will be the electricians! There's a... More
