Discover the Medina of Sousse as if you were a native
Hello welcome, my name is Nabil and I have been working as a tour guide for almost thirty years accompanying groups of different nationalities all over the country to help them discover the hidden beauties, outside the usual and monotonous tourist routes offered by travel agencies. Always in small groups, without haste, without stress.
There's no better way to soak up the charm of the old oriental-style city and discover its more hidden attractions than to leisurely stroll through its winding streets. In addition to its ancient and famous monuments such as the Great Mosque or the Ribat, the city has several hidden corners and buildings unknown even to the natives and whose originality can surprise. We will start with the Ribat, this fortress dating back to the 9th century AD, a few years before the great mosque was built, which also started as a fortress before turning it into a mosque in the middle of the same century. Both monuments are distinguished by a new architectural style introduced by the Arabs in Tunisia and North Africa. (Tickets not included). After the visit, we will begin our walk inside the historical centre, following the north wall and passing other minor religious buildings. You can also visit some of the old houses in the medina. We will reach the highest area of the city, which is still occupied by the Kasbah (Alcazaba), the palace of Forlalza and formerly the seat and official residence of the governors of Sousse for centuries. Currently the fortress houses the second archaeological museum in the country with a rich collection of Roman mosaics whose visit is essential to travel with the different cultures that the city has known in its history. We will continue our walk along the southern wall to finish crossing the souks (old markets) which still maintain their old structure by occupying several streets and alleys with various stalls of handicrafts, spices, vegetables, fabrics, clothes in an atmosphere of social frenzy being the liveliest area of the medina. Before finishing our walk and leaving the medina, we will have a mint tea or a Tunisian coffee in one of the old cafés of the souk. We will always be at your disposal for more information and more details.
