I was in the medina at Sousse at Easter 2006. We were staying in Tunis city and had experienced the pleasures(!) of the medina there. Sousse I found had absolute tat on sale, with stalls owned by extremely unpleasant men who believed that grabbing your arm and calling you a whore in arabic was some kind of sale tactic. I also found the droves of scantily-clad italian cruise-ship women seemed to enjoy, encourage and develop this attitude. The mosque and the Ribat were very interesting to visit and refreshingly devoid of sexist unpleasantness, but in my opinion a long way to go for two tiny sites.
I think that Sousse has to look to its longer-term sustainablitiy with some urgency cos at this rate there is little to encourage the discerning visitor to return or to recommend it to others.
