Amazing views across the sea, beach and town from the top of this. Probably great if you are into the archaeology and history but not much to see inside otherwise.

Fantastic place to start your visit of the medina : the great view of th city itself and the sea really gives an idea of its situation. The site is globally well maintained, however, there is little explanation to be had about it apart from several signs in a small room. If you're looking for bits about the city, these... More

700 year old heritage, i went on friday for Jummah prayers inside Kasbah mosque but could not wait around due to little man growing impatient,nice bit of tunisian culture,,,stall traders can be intimidating, but i've seen worse, just smile and ignore them..walk pass unless they make an offer that you cannot refuse!!

this is what is left of the wall and fort of hamamet, there is nothing much about it, you can climb a couple of stairs to reach the top area where you can get a good view of the medina and the sea but nothing more

There was a good view from the ramparts but not much else. It was also expensive in comparison to anything else.

I'd been to Turkey quite a few times previously so I thought I knew what to expect when visiting the Kasbah at Hammanet. Wow! how wrong was I!!!! Nothing but being hassled by shop keepers the whole time I was there they try every trick in the book, I suspect some ladies could feel really intimidated by this and must... More

Fantastic medieval Arab stronghold once the local HQ of the French Foreign Legion. Walk around it form the outside and inside to get a real feel for it. Unfortunately the vendors of the medina, which it now houses obstruct access to some of it.

As 2 women travelling around Hammamet we felt quite hassled by the male shop keepers here. If they're not trying to get you to buy from them they can be a little intimidating walking along the narrow walk ways. It becomes quite annoying after awhile hearing the same old lines coming from the sellers. If women travelling alone I would... More

The traders are very lighthearted but fairly pushy. They enjoy a haggle so don't take the first price. The stalls and shops are very colourful and tempting. The prices are on the whole very reasonable and it is a great place to pick up souvenirs.
