This place should be seen by anyone who travel to Hammamet. It has got a souk style decor and atmosphere. Quite small but it does remind us the souk in Marrakech, kind of mini grand bazzar in Istanbul and the trade style of Damascus gate in Jerusalem. As experienced travellers we recommend you to be confident do not to fall... More

Marine wasn't too bad, a lot of fishes to see, they had 2 Pirate ships, in cafes they don't serve beer, all around dirty and smelly. Don't even think to go in the shops, so much hassle, and they style is quiet poor.

I bought 2 so called leather belts for about £16 after heavy haggling (about half the price wanted) only to discover on one belt one of the holes wasn't punched out properly. When i removed the bit from the hole i discovered that it was made of leather on the outside where they did the lighter trick but it was... More

We went here by taxi. The medina is compact and easily negotiated. Practice saying NO firmly and often and you'll enjoy the experience. If you decide to buy, you need to haggle and start from about a third to a quarter of the asking price. It's best if you decide before you start how much you're willing to pay but... More

nice place but be aware they are very very pushy and want you to go in there stalls very hard to leave without hassle just be firm and say NO make sure you know exchange rate as they try to confuse you between sterling and dinar

We were a large group of mainly lads (20's) and found the medina welcoming and exciting without being overbearing or too much hassle. I could see that a smaller group (or sad to say... those with more female travellers) may be a bit more intimidated with the narrow maze-like streets but everyone we met was pleasant and welcoming. A good... More
