The historical heart of town, Medina of Hammamet encompasses a walled district constructed in the 15th century. The medina's battlements enclose labyrinthine streets flanked by stores and stalls selling clothing, jasmine products, spices, cooking implements, and ornaments. The whitewashed homes have been decorated with bright blue embellishments, making the area a very photogenic part of town.

Endroit pittoresque ,pas très bien entretenu,et gâché par le harcèlement des vendeurs du mini souk. Belle promenade en bord de mer malgré stout. more »Scenic place, not very well maintained, and marred by the harassment of the vendors of the mini souk. Beautiful walk by the sea despite stout.
Lots of shops need to savvy with how the locals sell. Don't give in to them or feel bad just say no when it's a no. Don't buy out of guilt. Some of them have decent wares but their approach can put you off.
Worth a visit, but boy is it hard work. Avoid it if at all a timid kind of person. You'll be skint in no time
