Tunisia's second city is underrated. I'm a great fan of underrated cities (Trieste, Alexandria, Trabzon, etc) so Sfax immediately appealed. It has arguably the most interesting medina in Tunisia, one of the most atmospheric old towns I've seen anywhere. The streets are just that bit narrower than other medinas, the souks more crowded, the sound of blacksmiths banging on metal almost deafening at times. You can walk for days around Sfax medina and not see another tourist.
