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!!

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...

Nevertheless it is quite big and offers a good choice of Souvenir and Clothing shops, with the owners far less "insistent" than those you'll find on the sealide boulevar shops. There are many restaurants, but as I was... More

Do not go. I have been to the medina in Tunis and believe me the medina of Hammamet is only for tourist. Everything is very expensive and you will experience a fake medina with strong hassling. If you want to discover a real medina life, go to Tunis.
