Makes for a good couple of hours. The array of knock-off goods is truly incredible. Personally I loved the medieval feel of the narrow streets, bustling with people and the occasional spice sellers stall with huge pots of turmeric and paprika.

This was quite nerve wrecking . I was glad to get out of there. They don't like you bartering. They gave us runners with insoles ripped out and only one lace. A lady also got 500 stole there on the first day of her holidays whilst paying for something. It was an experience well worth it but scary!

Enjoyed the bartering. There were plenty of gifts to be bought such as footwear, leather goods, spices and clothing and crockery. The taxi fare to the medina was only 5 tunisian dinar.
