Fodor's Expert Review Medina

Tunis Historic District/Site Fodor's Choice

The heart of the city is a walled Medina (Old Town), packed with Islamic palaces, mosques, and souks (markets), including the Souk des Orfevres (for gold) and the Souk de la Laine (for linen or cloth). If you need a break, visit Café M'Rabat for tea or coffee—the interior is more than 200 years old—and don’t miss the Ez Zitouna Mosque (Mosque of the Olive Tree).
