Medina is an Arabic word that means town. The Medina of Tunis is simply amazing as there are no hordes of tourists or locals crowding the place, so you’ve got it pretty much to yourself to explore.
This is the entrance to the city and is also called Porte de France. Once you step into the Medina, the contrast of the modern city will definitely hit you.
This as you all know is an Arabian marketplace and yes, it is an attraction in Tunis as well. Starting from near the main mosque, the place seems to endlessly stretch with stalls on either side selling various jewellery, Arabian footwear, scented oils and perfumes.
If you are hungry, then take your pick from the several little places and holes in the wall to grab a bite and a cool or perhaps a hot drink to refresh and energise.
Try not to visit the Medina on Fridays and Sundays. When you are buying anything remember to negotiate for a better price. If you are staying at a hotel in Tunis the likes of The Residence Tunis, take a taxi for a 40-minute drive here.
