If you visit Sousse, this place is where you should buy all the souvenirs and gifts. it's an old castle and walking around it was a great experience and the shops sold authentic Tunisian things like food and hand crafted products

Nice way to kill a couple of hours. Nice to visit the old bazar with loads of shops for everyone's taste and budget. Great for souvenirs and gifts. Some nice food places to grab local kebabs etc.

As you approach the entrance you may be pressured into entering shops ,try to resist although these people are not nasty in any way they may deter you from seeking the bargains in the medina

The medina was a nice place to explore but was quite uncomfortable with many stray cats roaming around everywhere and also local Tunisians pressurising tourists for money and scamming them out of money (as well as trying to get tourists to pay to see their prostitutes)...

the medina is spoiled by constant harassment I know this is expected in these kind of places however it was a joke . because of the constant pressure from shop owners we never went into shops because you couldn't look without being pestered . the people are very full on and just made the whole thing a vile experience ....

I've been to the medina of Tunis and Sfax. This one in Sousse is the biggest I've visited in Tunisia. Worth of a vist in this country. The hotels along the beach are a lot. You've lots of choices.

The Medina in Sousse is a hive of activity, hundreds of different stalls selling local products, spices, fruits. To enhance your visit to Tunisia and for a full flavour of Tunisian daily life the Medina in Sousse is a must visit. I won't be going back soon to Tunisia after the recent events but should times change in future i... More

A much more authentic medina than others in tourist areas, such as Hammamet. Take time to explore and enjoy the food markets. No problem with vendors, but very few European tourists at present, so far more locals shopping. Great sights, and a good view of the town as you walk up the hill outside the medina.

Shop keepers were very rude very aggressive and swear very well in English. I wouldn't recommend going here to anyone and certainly not with children.
