Bustling and buzzing place, grabbed a few bargains whilst we were there, although the place gets packed and you seems to be walking down little alleys and the locals are shouting, not once did we feel under threat or uncomfortable.

Great market with variety of products but be prepare to be haggled. They will try forcing you to buy their product, simply walk away if not interested. If you buy something do haggle the prices.

Crowded darkish place, mind the thiefs and be brave pushing down the prices if something fancy. I recomend visiting only with group.

The Medina is a place you can certainly, at times feel lost in, just remember all avenues/roads/streeets and alleyways leading down will return you to the centre of Sousse/market and harbour. it's a great place for browsing, eating and 'non alcoholic' drinking,as well as opportunities to chat and barter with the stall holders, We had great fun and made loads...
