Love the little alleyways, make sure you go off the main routes into the small back alleys to find some bargains. Found a great cafe on the path side too which served fantastic mint tea, always worth a try.

Have been here many times over years and yes it is very safe. In fact would feel safer here than in many places in Europe and the UK! Yes it is very busy, narrow in parts and the shopkeepers want to sell their goods - but don't all business people all over the world? Have visited many medinas in North... More

My husband and myself felt very uncomfortable as we kept being pestered, and hassled. We really wanted to look at the goods, but felt intimated.

Bit claustrophobic, narrow alleyways. Intended more for the locals to use to buy food, etc. Nabeoul market much better for tourists.

Its worth a visit the Medina but beware if you look at anything you will be pounced upon. Some interesting things cows heads turtles and chameleons ect but you always feel like you need to take care. Hand bags need to be held tight and i would be very wary of pickpockets i always kept my hand on my wallet... More

Went for the day. As walking around a extremely pushing taxi driver kept getting us to follow him (EXTREMELY PUSHING) pushing us into shops. If you can handle people grabbing you and pulling you then Ull be fine. Don't expect a peaceful meal as street sellers will still will come over to sell u stuff. A simple no thank you... More
