The Medina is an interesting place, but you must be aware that the only people who will be smiling are the people who want to take some of your money, either offering to sell you an item or be a guide and take you into their friends shop. You must be rude and blunt unless you want to be parted... More

I was there five years ago, and this time it was first place that I visited again in Sousse. It looks unsafe at first sight, but it's not. This is the place where you can experience real Tunisia. You can buy great gifts for people back home (leather bags especially and generally leather products). You have to bargain in order... More

Awful experience in the medina. Taken into the shops are haggled for a price and when left with nothing as chased down the street harrassed by the person. Intimidated by the shop keepers

A great place to spend a morning rambling around. As a general rule of thumb offer 1/3 of the price they quote. We laughed at the initial prices. Stop for a coffee or a cold drink in one of the cafes in this area and watch the locals go about their business. If you are there on Fridays its even... More
