This is the old medina located inside stone walls, near the urban center of Hammamet. You can see the local museum and shop all the souvenirs you like. But always negociate the price as they always ask too too much for anything. For all the ones that like or want to by traditional carpets, the genuine, the ones that are... More

We went to the medina and had a great laugh with the locals. Yes they do try to get you in their shops and sell you things but stand your ground. If you want to buy something and you have a price in mind start haggling a lot lower than what you want to pay.

If they stopped pestering you sand allowed you to decide if you want to go into shop they would probably get more business

You cannot step a foot without being constantly hassled and even with haggling the prices are still expensive, it is much cheaper and easier visiting the set price supermarkets for all holiday trinkets, gifts etc..

I have to say after visiting the medina in hammamet after a 20 year absence, I was disappointed, not the attraction it was all those years ago, not as I remembered or indeed wanted to show to my children, such a shame as it has lost its true spirit and now just seems about getting as much money out of...

The medina really is quite beautiful and it's great to see all the history of Tunisia. You can buy all of your souvenirs and spices etc here around all teh small twists and turns of the narrow streets. HOWEVER - be prepared to be invited in to every shop you pass which can get a bit tedious after a while... More

Not overwhelmed by the shops in the medina although the views from the roof top restaurant were perfect and well worth the trip.

A great place to visit, you can imagine it in olden times with a real buzz with tiny alleyways selling everything, today the sellers can be a little pushy but only trying to make a living much of it in good humour & batering is a way of life,
