It is not better than the old market of the capital. However, if you're looking for leather bags, wallets...etc, it's the right place. And there's a really nice small restaurant called "Dar Habibti" in the same area.

Go with a good sense of humor and get your barter on! We went from our Hotel on the Noddy train with a group of people and found it cultural and interesting. Would advise it to anyone in the area, especially for all the deals you can get.

This was a good visit. We took a taxi ( very cheap) from hotel to medina. It wasn't too full on expect to be invited into shops but if you stay polite and keep walking and smile - it's good fun . Haggle hard and get a bargain. We found an authentic Tunisian cafe and had shisha and mint tea... More
