Sousse Travel Guide: 327 reviews and 933 photos

Sousse is situated on the east coast of Tunisia, some 140km from the capital Tunis. A week here in Sousse, Tunisia's 3rd largest city was a most enjoyable break from the damp, rain and snow of England. We enjoyed just lazing in the hotel grounds, walking along the beach and exploring the old medina of Sousse with its Grand Mosque, museums and haggling in the souks.

The next resort along is Port El Kantoaui - a lovely place to visit with its marina and dancing fountains - even though its a purpose built resort.

Pros and Cons

    Fascinating page, Sandy. And, those train timetables and schedule practices sound a lot like rural Ecuador to me. It comes when it comes. :)
