It's big and great medina, walls are high. Fantastic place, special atmosphere, nice architecture. We saw very big choice of food, clothes, bags etc. It was nice to taste sweets, traditional food, buy souvenirs. I think it has everything.

Nice place with many shopping spots and will have a good city walk but when you try to buy anything from local shops try to bargain the price many times to get a nice discounted price from sellers

I had to visit the Medina of Sousse because my hotel was hidden somewhere inside it. Since it took me quite a while to find the hotel (LOL) I got to see quite a bit of the Medina. The surrounding old wall gives it extra...More

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,
