I walked round the Medina quite a bit. The Tunisian men always wolf whistle the girls and try and rip off tourists. If you show any interest at all in what they are selling they chase you to try and sell you their product(s). A lot of people approach you to tell you they know a really good sight to... More

You've got to go here even if it's just for the experience. Tight alleys with stalls and shops selling everything from flip flops to full replica football kits to complete cows head! It's hot and noisy and great fun. A firm 'no' and walk away if you're not interested. If you are, bargain hard. Found a little cafe selling ice... More

Visited back in 2010 The Medina is a must do in Sousse...you can't visit sousse without paying a visit to Medina, it's the best place for shopping, eating, discovering the culture, interesting people..etc I recommend the fish and spice market!! they're great!
