    A bargain
    The Kasbah of Hammamet is a fort at one corner of the famous medina. The castle is basically an empty shell but the walls and the ramparts are impressive and offer fantastic views over the median and the remaining town of Hammamet. Inside the fort one will find a small museum displaying some interesting artefacts, the descriptions are in French and Arabic, so I could not read them, but the articles are interesting to look at. The interior also has free and clean toilets, as well as a reasonably priced café that sold coffee far better than my hotel did. The jewel as I have said are the towers and ramparts which provide fantastic views over the sea, the Medina and the town. Entrance fee is only 8 TD pp (approx £2) which I think is a bargain.

    Beautiful.
    I loved it. Ignore the pushy vendors and get taken away by the beauty of the design and art. Worth paying the small fee to enter the top part of the Kasbah. Views were lovely.

    An Historic view of life in the Roman era
    This unique fort has a lot of history from Tunisia and from the Roman Empire. It is a small fort but offers a great view of the city and gulf of Hammamet. The first is also part of a large wall around the ancient city that includes the fort, housing, and the Medina. The first has a few historical cannons, and a chance to walk around the wall of the fort. It is overpriced for what you can find inside the first. But if you are in Hammamet, spend the money to walk through history

The shopkeeper who became our guide gave us great insight into the Kasbah and Medina. The route we took to the summit had very tall steps, those Romans must have had very long legs.

Lovely place the views from the top are spectacular. The information is in Arabic and French we tried our best to translate but this didn't impact on our enjoyment.

Beautiful place but again not much to do besides the constant haggle and overwhelming presence of locals wanting to make some money. Beware of locals pretending to work at your hotel wanting money

I visited this location over 20 years ago. There was a cafe at the top. this time I found very interesting historic information about Hammamet. Alas it is in Arabic and French only. how difficult is it to create downloadable sound/pdf files in other languages ? Luckily, I found someone who can read Arabic they translated it for me

The tower of Hammamet is worth a visit. It is a shame that the excellent displays regarding the history of the Medina is in French and Arabic

Terrifying experience. As others have said, the vendors are extremely pushy and will not let you leave once you are inside without spending your money. We had vendors shouting and swearing at us that we had not spent money in their shop but had in others. I left feeling very shaken and didn’t leave the hotel for the rest of the holiday. It ruined our experience of Tunisia and I will not be going back.

Not a great deal to see inside, the only descriptions of the history were in Arabic and French so if you can’t read either of those you won’t get much of an idea of what the place is about. When I visited it looked like a lot of repair work was going on and several parts were closed. There are great views over the beach and town from the top which made it worthwhile and there is a nice cafe up the top as well.
