The history behind the place require more time and peace in mind. There is a lot to see and to discover, I liked the visit to the museums. However you have to keep away from the people who works on the shops.

This place during the day is an experience and can easily get lost in and amongst the various alleyways, but visiting the shopping centre before the Medina is always a plus. Although if you were to visit the Medina afterwards, I wouldn't suggest it. At night, it's a completely different place, the place is dark, dingy and men approaching you... More

I can't resist a visit to the Medina every time I go to Sousse. My boyfriend rolls his eyes as it's always the top of my list. There are reviews here which are really nasty. "Watch out for the conmen here,do not venture here if you are only a couple of women". I first came to Tunisia with a friend... More

Amazing old city setting, Unique narrow streets, classic market, wide arrange of shops and choice. Only hard experience is the present lack of tourists and desperate shopkeepers, a lot of shops closed. Don't miss the fresh squeezed orange juice!

Watch out for the conmen here,do not venture here if you are only a couple of women.As you might imagine everything here is fake as Tunisia operates a closed currency so nothing is imported. Do not venture into this area at night as it is not safe to do so,however during the day it is certainly an eye-opener,but be warned... More
