We like to visit historical places and sight see.We were unable to stop and look around without being given the hard sell.The traders would do better to stand back and let people just brows

Imagine tasting a delicious green tea seated on a souk - castle - large staircase, decorated from one end to another by comfy pillows of every colors, listening to a deliciously smooth r´n´b kinda sound and smoking apple tunisian chicha at the end of another warm afternoon, relaxing for the evening slowly arriving and spreading a gentle jasmine odor all...

Not much to see there but the panorama from the Fort (museum) is definitely worth seeing. This is the place from which all the most famous photos of Hammamet are done. Also, down from the Fort (the so-called Medina) there is a walking lane, right by the sea. Worth walking there too. Also, some shopping around. But nothing really special... More

We visited in September 20114, entrance was 7 Dinars each plus 1 Dinar to use our camera inside the Fort. There is information displayed in the inside areas but unfortunately this is not in English. Climb the stairs for some great views of Hammamet and the beach. It was definitely worth paying to use our camera. It was very peaceful... More

You need to be careful you don't get enticed into buying things you don't want, especially at prices that are way above, even after haggling, prices at shops elsewhere.

Great place in historic style opposite to the modern part with the hotels. Take a walk in this historic part and you will see traditional architecture and way of life.

The information is all in French and Arabic but I could understand the pictures. There's not that much to see but the view from the top is worth the entrance fee. Across the town and the beach - it's beautiful!

Very good but only because there is nothing else to see around. And give you opportunity to burn some calories walking up and down the stairs.

If you want to shop, this is the place to do it, but hope you don't mind being bothered by the shop owners as if you stop to look, they try and get you in, but you can always barter with them, as you will virtually always get it for 1/2 the price or less than what they initially asked... More
