  • I was crazy enough to brave the Ribat at 2:30 pm at the end of July. It was VERY hot. You should go all the way to the top on narrow winding stairs to get a gorgeous 360-degree panorama of the city.  more »

  • Very interesting, but got fed up with being constantly hounded to buy things. Loads of little narrow streets. Apparently it is far better to go in the evening.  more »
