We stayed at the cous cosus fest with about 50 people. The cous cous was not good. Each dish of couscous cost € 10. Will definitely not more. The city is beautiful! A tourist resort highly for pretty big beach. The town deserves. From a visit to the historical - cultural, has nothing. only a city for a holiday. The... More

Cous Cous was very good and very reasonably priced. This is an Italian street festival complete with lots of booths, selling candy, cheese, wine, olive oil, pasta and more. Lots of fun, we combined with a day on the water, (Hippocampus outstanding).

This was our 1st couscous festival (let alone international one) so hard to judge. The couscous we had there for lunch was OK. Next time I'd ask hotels/locals which is the best stand (choose fish, meat, veg) one they recommend, as they will probably know/have tried among most of them. I'd also wait until the last day or so to... More

In the festival you can enjoy tasting of, cooking of, buying of, and also contributing to Cous Cous. It is itself a kind of new entertainment. Famous musicians, expert cookers, and people crazy at Cous Cous get together to blend in a warm atmosphere of Cous Cous. Try to experience once before you die.

You don't even have to like couscous. Just enjoy the live music every night, the stalls, the shopping, the wine-tasting. And of course the beauty of the... More
