  • For those they trvel in Winter time, it is advisable to check if the hotel or house have heating. Have experience temps as low as 11d, combining with humidity, it is not pleasant... In this area...  more »
  • This is a real medina, unlike the one in Yasmine Hammamet. Interesting narrow passages, well maintained and interesting to visit. Lots of shops with lots of pushy sales staff trying to get you inside....  more »
  • Beautiful place with original bazaar. Decent price. But make sure you haggle ;-) We went for a quick walk and we had almond tea in a cafe.  more »

  • Very beautiful. The labyrinth street structure and the beautiful doors and windows of the homes and shops are amazing. Very well maintained and you really feel as if you're in the past walking on the streets. The shop owners are somewhat annoying when the keep inviting you to enter their store but not too much of a bother. Definitely a must visit if you're in Hammamet
  • Great old place.watch out for getting a good price that you are happy with the traders....stick to your guns or prepare to walk. Fantastic place.
  • Perfect. Go here instead of the new Yasmine Medina. Selling the usual stuff but the place is lovely
  • Not great, not terrible. Touting merchants, as everywhere. It looks nice, but has nothing to do after like half an hour.
  • Nice place with beautiful small narrow streets between white buildings with blue windows and railings. In a buildings and a streets is bazar, shops and galleries. In the summer the streets are decorated by blooming trees and flowers.
