Did'nt like being hassled into the shops but fun to haggle and people watch! Plenty of places to eat inside which also pester you to something to eat or drink.

Be prepared to barter be firm with venders, but to be honest we had no problems no hostility, found most sold the same also our shops near to our hotel sold the same at the same price.

Walking around the narrow lanes of the Medina is lovely.Every where is clean and all of the houses are painted white and blue.There are little art gallaries dotted all around,very pretty indeed.

The goods are cheap enough if you can haggle, plus the secret to haggling is being able... More

Visited the Medina in Hammamet with my wife while and I have to hope that visitors to Tunisia make it to different ones during their stay. Even locals comment on the increasingly aggressive tactics of the shop-owners and vendors around here. We're well-travelled and used to the usual edging and bartering that's part of the experience in a souq or... More
