Spent a few hours going around the Medina of Sousse. Plenty of stalls to see. Lovely Grand Mosque to visit and the Ribat. Only trouble really is the constent hassle from different stall holders. They dont understand the word No. This does spoil the visit

Great fun for haggling and buying bits you probably don’t really need! Beware of the typical sales patter and stick to your guns - you learn to be firm and walk away!!

Not only tourist souvenirs but foodstuff for local people with emphasis on fish. Not hassled as much as other Medinas!

There is a castle in the middle of the city, and it is surrounded by the local bazaar. The place is too crowded with narrow roads, and the sellers may be annoying sometimes. There is a museum and a nice garden outside the city walls....More

The place is stunning, but shop keepers kept on shouting us to go into their shops, so I couldn't take in the beauty. We only spent 1 hour there as once you went in a shop you could be in there for 20 mins.

Its open most of the time seven days a week. Best to visit between 10am and 8pm to be sure as hours are very flexible. Fridays many shops are closed all day or from about 1,
