It's lots of fun to wander in here. Yes, shop keepers want you to come and buy stuff--that is how they live. You have to bargain. Don't be shocked, it's part of the experience.

Busy, colourful, a must for anyone shopping or who just wants a taste of Tunisian life. Go with the right mindset, enjoy it. Don't go if you are in a hurry! Beautiful buildings, a very traditional atmosphere. So much to see.

Typically quaint Arabic town but not much to see or do, perhaps because we were visiting in early December.

Dirty, Scary, Pushy. The whole area is the pits and the sheer volume of people claiming to be the chef from my hotel was incredible. I will never go back to Tunisia

Not much there! Good to pay to go in and look over the bay. However, unless you want to buy a load of stuff in the markets as well you'll have to work for your view by running the gauntlet of sellers.

Lovely food very well cooked especially a brick which is an egg cooked in batter. Lovely hotel. Be careful when shopping you will want to buy everything but remember to barter.
