“great views of sousse and the medina”
Review of Kasbah of Sousse

Ranked #7 of 31 things to do in Sousse
Attraction details
Reviewed 25 August 2011

this was on our list of things to see on our last visit to sousse in 2010 but never got there,
as we have been to the medina before on our last visit we decided to walked right through from the main gate to the south side turned right and headed up the hill, at the top you see the great walls of the kasbah, walk round the walls to the main road and you see a flight of steps up to a gate in the wall near the tower, the police station is opposite so be carefull with photo's,
as you enter you see a small office and will be met by the guide, the price was about 3 dinars, we had a three year old with us so left the buggy at the office, the guide unlocks the tower and takes you up a flight of brick and wooden staircase, at certain points he will tell you to mind your head, if you dont like hights or narrow passages dont go, at the top there is a light that used to be the main light house, he explains every think you want to know and see, you can see monastir to the south and pek to the north, after the talk he will let you take photo.s of the area exept the west that overlooks the police station, the views of the medina are unbeliveable, you dont realise how many people live above the medina, when finished he leads you back down and asked you if you enjoyed the visit, he was so gratefull of our company and thanked us for taking time to see it, as we had plenty of time he made us tea and we had a good chat,
it should be on your list of places to visit as you can see it from most of sousse,
after the visit we decided to wave a taxi down as it is was a fair walk back to the cornice to get the little train back to pek, the taxi was 11 dinars by the meter and dropped of right at the hotel door,
