Tunis Shopping: 14 reviews and 22 photos

  Typical shop in Tunis Medina
by barryg23

There are two main shopping streets in the medina: rue de la Kasbah and rue Jemaa Zitouna. Both begin at Place de la Victoire where the medina meets the Ville Nouvelle. From here they lead deep into the heart of the medina. You can buy everything imaginable along these streets, though much of it is aimed at tourists. Prices are, of course, negotiable and part of the experience of shopping in the medina is bargaining with the shopkeepers.

It seemed to me that many of the shops were selling the same old produce. Sometimes you might see five shops in a row all selling the same old things. Or not selling might be more appropriate as none of the shops were very busy when we were there.
