I liked the mini-shops but disliked some pushy people to buy. Also nice bars and restaurants. A place for everybody, young and old

Very lovely little medina town, built around a big fort off the beach - just remember to have your wits about you when buying things (the exchange rate is only £1-3TD) so when you think it sounds like there trying to rip you off, they probably are. Do the maths before you buy anything and haggle right down.

a place to barter but must keep your cool, a place to have some real great bargains, if you know what you are looking for

Didn't particularly like anything about the Medina. Felt under pressure to go into the shops and to purchase items for well over the price you'd expect or be willing to pay.

worth a quick walk but nothing great to write about, there would be someone who would try to help you find the direction but he may take you past a shop for you to buy something, just say "La Shukran" (No thanks) firmly and walk away

Wonderful time spent at Madina of Hammamet over the Easter holidays with my two children. To be honest I wouldn't bother shopping at the souks here as too much hassle ( best to visit Nabeul market). The best bit of this part of Hammamet were the views of the blue and white buildings and the Kasbah, also Cafe and restaurants... More

From the moment we stepped into the Medina we were hassled by traders telling us it was "No Hassle " to go into their shops . Once in a shop it was difficult and awkward getting out . I know you are supposed to haggle but this was beyond fun.

Scary place to visit. People use your children to entice you Into their shops or over to them. If you don't won't to buy. They are very rude and swear at you in English. They want you to hear what they are saying. Stuff you could buy off Internet or ebay or local market back home. avoid at all costs!

I expected to be hassled big time going into the medina as we'd been warned by our hotel that it wasn't a place many people enjoyed. However, when in Tunisia ;-) Of course every shop owner shouted out in every language (very impressive) until they found yours and invited 'my friend' in to see the goods. I enjoyed the bartering...
