About Dar Am Taïeb Museum in Sousse

Medina's souk district in Sousse is the best place for shoppers. Cute and colourful Rue el Aghalba runs past to the Medina's west side. Off this street is the souk quarter. Partially covered, this quarter has the bustling atmosphere of the Orient with metal workers and woodworkers down narrow side alleyways. Hundred of shops and stalls in this souk sell Tunisian wares, such as carpets, blankets, cloth, copperware, pottery, and jewelry. Some of the leather and tiles sold in this souk are the best in the world. Tourist souvenirs are the best attractions in souk streets. It's the perfect place for shopping for some special treasure to take home.

How to reach

Take the light rail as it connects central Sousse by the Medina (4 Station Sousse Bab Jdid) to Mahdia via Monastir. It stops along the way in various neighbourhoods in southern Sousse and the Monastir MIR IATA airport. There are buses, both public and private from the city every 30 minutes. It's a walled bazaar, so better walk from the bus station.

Tips

  • A variety of passages may confuse you. So find your way around the souk carefully.
  • Shopkeepers often quote higher prices. Some bargaining is normal.
  • Beware of counterfeit designer goods as these are sold in large quantity in the souks
  • Don't waste your and your shopkeeper's time if you don't intend to buy. Make it clear from the beginning.
  • Close the deal once settled. Don't haggle further.
