A place to get lost in their streets plenty of interesting things. It's a size walkable with no problem. In the rush hours you have to be patient to pass through the small streets full of people.

Even if there are more attractive Medinas, the one in Tunis is nice. Vendors are not aggressive and really helpful. It is relatively tidy and clean too

In between the alleys are stores and stores selling everything and anything. A bit like the souks in Marrakesh. Should see it if you haven’t seen it before but don’t go alone. I went alone to see what it was all about and it was...More
