You might enjoy a bit of haggling elswhere, but not here. We were virtually held prisoner until we bought something. Other shopkeepers grab you and pull you into their shops, selling the same fake clothing as the one next to it. Get most indignant if...More

The medina is a warren of narrow streets, white walls and mosaic tiles abound. There are a lot of shops catering to tourists and the shopkeepers can be quite forceful in trying to get you into their shop, with promises of no hassle and cheap...More

We visited the old Medina first but unfortunately didn’t even get to properly look at anything as the staff were so pushy and didn’t give you space to breath. I would of likely bought some bits if I was given the chance to look without...More

I now visited both the new and old Medinas in Hammamet. There is a marked difference between the two with the new Medina being pleasant if somewhat sterile. There are far few shops and more touristy things to see even a cinema. There is a...More

Taxis are reasonably cheap when you bargain with the taxi driver. From Steigenberger hotel to the old medina it usually cost us 6 dinar, to hammamet Yasmine 6 dinar and to Nabil 15 dinar. We found this to be cheaper than using the taxi meter....More

Not the biggest place to visit, but good if you had kids as there s a small park for them. Upstairs you will find some shops, get your bartering head on, bargains to be had for those willing to find them!

Not old Medina. Was construction in 2000. But for rest and tourists shopping very good. Absolutely security and police services. So many souvenirs, not expensive cafes and restaurants, sea meals. I think you can visit that place.

This place is a rip off that is full of clever conmen. I paid what I thought was 90 dinars for 2 teeshirts and a watch (which doesn't work). The merchant entered 900 dinars (£257) which I only found out when I went onto internet...More

Just buy at the airport, on your flight or at your hotel. The usual price is 4 dinars (2€) a pack mainly at the hotel or 40 dinars a volume (20€). There are many cigarette sellers at the beach but I woudn´t trust most of... More
