I liked that they were very nice. Of course they bug you to go in their store but if you firmly say no they respect that. Lots to look at and cute little places to eat or have a drink.

It would be lovely if you weren't hassled everywhere you went. The men asking me and my fiancée to join them in bed, or if we wanted drugs. When we declined getting very angry about it.

The medina at sousse is a huge sprawling walled old town, rich in over a thousand years of history. The front section is a market, small shops and stalls, located in old cobbled streets, rich in atmosphere. The sights and smells, particularly of the spice stalls are a feast to the senses. Pretty much everything is to be found, from... More

I was impressed and scared a little in the same time. We got lost and it took time to find the exit as it is really huge. :)

Whilst on business in Sousse my colleague and I visited the old Medina which we thought was worth seeing. Colorful fresh market and narrow streets with interesting daily scenes. Spend a good hour and you will like it.

Explore, get lost, haggle with vendors, find a secluded cafe with a view. You'll have a great time here so long as you don't mind being harassed by local shopkeepers and people trying to give you tours.

slightly hassly but similar sort of hassles that you get in turkey or morocco. cheap shopping and easy haggling if you like that sort of thing. meat area is a must for the sights! jewelery area is particularly good. enjoy.

Be ready to haggle!! All the locals try to force you to buy from them, they don't like the word 'NO'. The medina itself is really nice. The Soula center has most things in there and there is not much price difference to the stalls or small shops.
