Clean and peaceful. People are freindly and enjoyed the scenes. The town hall can do better for the optimum cleanliness of the streets.

The place itself is beautiful, the only problem is that if you go alone or in couple, you'll be approached by a lot of people during your walk, they will say to you that they work in your hotel, just because they check our bracelets and etc. I felt like a celebrity there, so after basically 20 minutes I left...

Very nice small medina. The sellers there are a bit pushy like everywhere but that is just the way it works there. You can bargain for good price, however some shops have fiksed price and mostly very rude sellers with very empty shops..now I know why. They all have the same trick to lure you in the shops: "where sre... More

This place is fake touristy Medina, I walked there and the shop owners started insisting on us to enter their shops to have a look. Cheap quality products and very high prices. JUST AVOID!!

I liked the visit at night time, was overcrowded but great place to pick up presents and souvenirs, you've get to work out the price negotiation, Restaurants & coffee shops are great.

Sometimes we walk in medina and look at things and maybe take a coffee. It's more expensive to buy things there then in shops.

I have been at the Medina, in the heart oh Hammamet. Very small streets, full of any kind of shops and markets, very crowded. It's impossible to stay on your own 'cause the merchants try to sell you everything, all the time. If you want to buy something you have to contract the price, it's their way of doing. A... More

Lovely friendly safe place to visit Quaint market with quirky sellers trying to get you to buy their wares, if you don't barter they think you are stupid, walk away and the prices drop drastically but remember they rely on the tourists to survive and an extra 50p is nothing to us but the world to them Definitely recommend a...
