The souq in the medina makes for a fascinating stroll. Tiny shops overflowing with stuff; people selling, buying, milling about; skeletal cats lurking in the shadows; the smells of essential oils, spices, frying food and rotting garbage; the sounds of the muezzin, raï, football on the radio, Arabic and French. The Tunis medina’s main routes are labeled “touristique”, but even a few steps off the beaten track it’s a real, working market. Behind the often scruffy facades hide old palaces, mosques, Islamic schools. Compared to Morocco or even Sousse you will not be hassled here. Bab El Bahr (The large stone-arch “French Gate”at the head of Avenue DeFrance) is a good starting point for the Souk. The goldsmiths are close to Bab Bnet. Haggle if you wish to buy anything – a quarter of the price first asked is a good starting point, except for obviously cheap items. As always, if you give a price and they agree, you will be expected to pay. The tourist office adjacent to the Clock Tower has excellent maps of the medina that depict an interesting walking tour. However, as at May 2014, apart from the mosque and one other site, most were closed for much-needed renovation and the haunts of faux guides.
Cathedral of St. Vincent de Paul
If you are looking for a perfect beach image in Tunisia, you will not find beauty like the beauty of this beach. The main island is located in Houmt Souk with its old town area of white houses, as an attraction with plenty of shopping opportunities for those who wish to get to enjoy the beach.
Sidi Bou Said

There are white alleys, stained-glass windows and colorful doors, and there is a Tunisian architectural village that shows at its best.
