Beware of the crowd and it is very dirty. if you are willing to walk without respecting your private space, that is ok.
The fountain at the gate of bab bhar is clogged and rusted and not working. The gate it self has so many graffitis that you do not enjoy it.

It's a great place to visit, and to mix with Tunisians daily life. Various markets offer what ever a person would need! To visit!

This ex-entrance to the Medina, also known as Porte de France, is found at the end of Ave. Habib Bourghiba and Rue de France. It's name means The Door of the Sea, because, before Tunis centre was rebuilt by the French, the sea used to arrive up to Bab el Bhar. It is the main door to the entrance to the Medina. Very busy all day long.

This is the entrance to the Medina and was once the gateway into the ancient diplomatic quarter that once housed the embassies of France, Sweden, Venice among others. Right next door is the splendid former British Embassy. A great meeting place to start your tour of the Median. Locally people refer to this as: "The Porte de France." If anyone asks you if you'd like to go to the "Berber Festival" just say NO! Its just someone trying to make a small commission by bringing you to a shop. Unless of course you like shopping with someone you don't know.
