Real people and life, don't be intimidated, it's quite safe though perhaps a bit alien to Europeans. Start haggling at at least 1/3 the start price, many shops have the same products on offer.

Well worth seeing but be prepared for big crowds and not a while for yourself - tunisian salesmen are everywhere :)

Rather shabby and uninteresting. If on an all inclusive holiday make sure you keep your wrist band well covered up, if you don't you will have men coming up to you and pretending they work in the hotel you are staying at (they seem to recognise which wrist bands come from which hotel) and try to entice you into carpet shops where hard sell techniques are used to try to make you buy carpets and leather wear at inflated prices.

Just a big rat pit with locals selling fake goods & trying to rip you off. Be careful of pick pockets etc

Be prepared to haggle ... start at 25% of the asking price & be preapred to walk away ... if they want the sale, they will follow you with their best offer!
