The medina was a good size and full of stuff. the quality was not that great, if compared with the one of Istanbul or Damascus. its more like the one in Egypt. Note: nobody takes credit cards. you have to bring cash for everything. they all know where the cash machine is.

We had a fantastic time at the Medina of Tunis. We highly enjoyed the souk and the different things you can buy. The shops for some are stunning! We bought so many things and wherever you turn, there is a beautiful door or something to photograph. We aRe two female travellers and were not at all bothered, people were respectful and friendly. I would not hesitate to go back to this extraordinary place! Can only recommend 👍🏼😊

Absolutely agree with all the positive posts. The Medina is totally worth a visit, maybe two. It is smaller than the famous market in Istanbul but still quite large. Yes, we felt totally safe, no issues whatsoever. No guide necessary! As others have noted, every 20 to 30 yards you come upon some amazing wooden door with old iron strappings leading to something. The doors are amazing. There seem to be streets for children clothes and for modern adult clothes and for shoes. We bought woven towels and table covers. I was looking for olive wood products and found only two stores with them but the ones they had were great. You do bargain especially the higher the price. Please remember they're just coming out of an economic crisis. Package deals for two or three or four work really well. It looks different in the morning than in the afternoon. The architecture is fascinating.

Medina of Tunis is a crowded place full of history, architecture, mosaics, wonderful doors designs and souvenir shops. Of course the most beautiful souvenir shop is the house of artisans, located in a place, where you can find the essence of the Medina: pottery, carpets, perfumes made by berber women and a breath taking view above the roof. Although I traveled alone in Tunis, no one deranged me, every one tried to help, to guide and to tell me about the place. I had an amazing holiday in Tunis, and the weather very nice. Just cant wait to return and see more.

A busy and hustling place. The medina is divided into five different souqs that specialise in a specific type of product: clothing, books, food, etc. Well worth spending a day wandering through this place. Dont forget to bargain!

A walk through the old streets of the Medina is highly recommended. The old narrow streets lead to Al Zaitouna Mosque which will not be open before 14:00 ..
