Loved visiting the old medina and getting a sense of culture. The man who owns the café as soon as you walk in is just lovely and was a pleasure to talk to. We went in the evening during Ramadan and people did harass you a bit to go in their shops but just be prepared for this and you... More

the New Medina in Zasmin Hammamet has limited variety of local products and is very artificial. The old Medina in the Hammamet has great spirit, you will enjoy the true historic market and can please yourself as your belowed ones by large variety of gifts for good price. Negotiating is a must though!

This was my very first experience with pushy sellers and it wasn't a nice one. They won't accept no for an answer. The have all kinds of tricks up their sleeves - from crippled children to various role playing games ("Hey, do you remember me? I'm from your hotel"). It's a nice place to get the general feeling of a... More
