About the tour

Sousse is the 3rd largest city of Tunisia and it’s considered as the jewel of the coastline, with over 1.5 million inhabitants and huge beach resorts. The Medina which has been listed by the UNESCO as World Heritage Site in 1988, is a typical example of the architecture of the early centuries of Islam in the Maghreb. It encompasses a Kasbah, fortifications and the Great Mosque of Sousse. Today we are taking you to a special journey through the history of the old city of Sousse (The Medina). You will marvel the souks and the huge variety of handicraft but also market places where shops sell spices, frankincense, vegetables and fruits such as the famous Tunisian Deglet Ennour dates.
