It is a must visit while in Sousse. It reflects their culture and their friendship. All the merchants are highly helpful and you can find anything that comes into your mind with amazing prices.

Being familiar with the souks of Morocco we thought that this would be similar. The Moroccans can learn from the Tunisians! Many sellers were very very pushy, and particularly on the edge of the Medina, quite aggressive. However, one we got into the narrower lanes,...More

Love the Medina, as for getting a bargain; we found souvenirs cheaper at a shop near our hotel. Keep kids close to you as the paths are a like a maze and even we couldn't turn round and get back out the same way again...More

We started our morning walk at the fish market before visiting the Ribat. Besides fish, there were lots of other stuff to see and buy. If you wish to taste the local snacks, this is the place to visit.

Very easy to come here from Tunis. Train is the best option and the cheapest way. Looking very similar like Santorini in Greece or Essaouira in Morocco
