The place is gorgeous. Beautiful, renovated alleys, houses, doors... Yes, the shop owners are desperate for tourist money, so they will bug you. But just nicely say "no thank you" and walk away. Going early in the morning is way better.

I guess I am used to the larger Medina’s in other cities in the Arab world. Walkable in about 1 hour. Shopkeepers are a bit pushy-just say no nicely and keep walking. Found a lovely artist that I chatted with for about an hour and...More

A great experience with so much colour and lots of holiday gifts. The vendors were quite persistent but not aggressive.

Go for a walk around but be careful. They approach you and harass you to go to their establishment. The prices are very high inside. You can get better deals elsewhere. Good for taking photos due to the historic background.

The Medina is a warren of labyrinth streets, a lot of white walls and mosaic tiles. There are many shops catering to tourists and the shopkeepers advertizing their goods, trying to get you into their shops, We visited the old town first. I would of...More

This whole visit lasted all of 10 minutes if that - we were penned in and surrounded by three or four shop owners within seconds of setting foot into the Medina. It got very annoying and overwhelming very quickly - almost to the point of...More
