    Not huge, but an impressive collection of ancient relics, with an emphasis on impressively intact mosaics. The grounds are historically important and very attractive, and almost no one was there when we went.

    I thoroughly enjoyed my visit here. It's a beautifully preserved old dar, chock-full of art and interesting artifacts. You can tour a few bedrooms and the kitchen and climb up the tower for a good view of the city. A printed guide to each room in English was a helpful accompaniment.

    I read on TA reviews that a lot of people suffered harassment by pushy salespeople in the medina. I can vouch this never happened to us, but then I wouldn't take kindly to this. I guess it can also depend on your own attitude and approach. Be friendly, but firm.
    We spent many hours exploring the narrow alleys, shopping and taking pictures. The medina is always the beating heart of any city in North African Maghreb. I thoroughly enjoyed Sousse, especially its medina.

    What a fun, quirky, off the beaten path little place! An old house with turrets and winding stairwells crammed chock-a-block full of sculptures and artistically assembled found objects. The son of the (deceased) artist was there and showed us around and shared some anecdotes about his father. After you visit the museum, say hello to him in his painted leather store in the medina. He does nice work and it's quite different than the usual tourist tchatchkes.

    The Aghlabids built a lot of ribats on the North African coast in the 8th and 9th centuries : this chain of fortifications reinforced their new strongholds. From their towers they kept watch and communicated any imminent danger. You can climb this watchtower, from where there are excellent views over Sousse's medina and down into the mosque.
    Like the one in Monastir - which it resembles - the ribat in Sousse is in very good condition. Most interestingly, we were told that some of the marble and pillars (eg the two in the entrance) were pilfered from Byzantine churches after the Aghlabids conquered Malta.

    The Aghlabids, vassals of the Abbasid Califate, had already built the ribat next-doors with the oldest mosque late 8th century. But as the town grew, they needed a larger space to pray, so the Grand Mosque was built. Whilst it shares a floorplan with the one in Kairouan, and resembles it, the Sousse mosque looks more like the ribat with its crenellated walls.
    Inside, non-Muslims are allowed in the large courtyard from where you can look into the prayer hall with minbar and mihrab, but cannot enter. There are some plaques with explanations in different languages.

    Fun, if it wasn't low season and wet and cold. Still, some people didn't let the weather stop them enjoying themselves.
    It does have rides for all ages and when I was here previously, it had a great atmosphere!

    At Medinat Alzahra Parc it is a setup that will bring you close to the Tunisian culture and give you a deeper understanding of what is Tunisia all about.
    So prepare for the following :
    - pending on where you are stationed near Sousse you will have a bus trip of about 30 -40 minutes (even more pending on distance and traffic to Medinat ....).
    - upon arrival you will go through a souvenir shop - that will be open upon your departure.
    - you get out into a big courtyard where you will encounter the Tunisian country life - with camels, goats and sheep, homemade flatbread with harissa and olive oil. Great perspective for those who are interested in this kind of cultural immersion.
    - after you pass this area you get near a stage - there you will have a short - 20-30 minutes show of singing, dancing - dancing with some heavy potery held in equilibrium on their heads, horse riding with some acrobatics.
    - after this you get into the restaurant area - there the food will be served - Brik a starter with some salad - I was enjoying that. After you get some Couscous soup - spicy and fresh (is not all that you can eat so the portions might not be equally satisfying.), than couscous with chicken and sheep sausages - overall decent food - not the best not the worst.
    During your dinner there will be a show on the stage of the restaurant that is sort of a reproduction of a Tunisian wedding - still I doubt that is genuine, let's say is a reinterpretation of the wedding - the show ain't bad that's for sure and it is for the length of your dinner.
    - the theatrical show - it is advertised as a laser show - it a is a lighting and theater show -with some lasers at certain points - still it is a very good show and the show is telling you the story of Tunisia from the ancient ages to the modern days.
    Tell you how 6 nations have shaped the history of Magreb and Tunisia: berber, punic, roman, arabic, turk and french. All this cultural merging gave birth to the Tunisia we know today. You will have the story from the fall of mighty Carthage till the modern days. Lovely show and very interesting - and since you are sitting outside in an amphitheater guess what - you can smoke a cigarette if you want- and the great thing - the show is in 4 languages so everybody can understand what the story is telling. I really enjoyed it.
    To sum it all up it was a great closure to our tunisian experience - I recommend you see it for yourself.

    Visited by taxi from hotel. Lovely modern building. Plenty of shops for all the family. Nice food court. A large Carrefour at the end for all your bits and bobs. Well worth a few hours of your time to pick up your holiday gifts without having to barter!
