“Great for shopping”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

The medina of hammamet is like a maize full of traditional shops and stalls and great if you like a barter with the locals. Can get very crowded and stay away from any kind of festival as you will be taken to buy goods usually carpets and rugs the locals are friendly but be on your guard for conmen

“Interesting Shopping”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

Very interesting place to shop. Loads of little craft shops in a warren of tiny passages. Not for the easily upset. the traders can be a little pushy but a firm no usually works.

“There for 5 minutes”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

I liked the look of the medina and I'm into culture etc but we were cornered and questioned as to why us English people won't buy, my answer was we will buy but not when hassled, stick to the fixed priced shops,

“Good for a cultural part of Old Hammamet”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

Took a half day tour of this and it was about what I'd expect you either like a bit of history and culture or you don't and with a tour guide organised by a tour operator this was good in the main . I would recommend taking a tour round and most of all the excellent views of the old city and out to sea . Has a lovely little souvenir shop selling locally painted souvenirs which are at a fixed price . Look out for the brave of you on the outside the local market if you can fend off the haggling locals.
In a nut shell worth a look and good access

A tip you are asked to pay 1 dinar took take pictures in the old fort which is well worth it I would say was well worth it ( just pay on entry )
