Sousse Nightlife

Tunisian nightlife is never rowdy with the larger hotels providing most of the evening entertainment, and Sousse is no different. Evenings are spent dining in the company of family and friends and wandering along the waterfront or through the cobbled streets of the old town.

Sousse Shopping

Sousse has a modern shopping centre as well as a medina whose souks are filled with small shops and stalls. Tunisia is a souvenir hunter’s paradise and the alleyways overflow with craftsmen and women making and selling their wares. These include pottery and ceramics, carpets, baskets and leather goods to name but a few. The richness of olive wood is shown to good effect in the carved bowls, kitchen utensils and even in jewellery items. Except for the more formal shops where prices are controlled, bartering is a way of life to be enjoyed by both the seller and the customer.

Sousse Eating

Sousse has many eateries from small cafes serving traditional fare to fine restaurants serving international cuisine. Fish of course is a prominent feature on menus, always fresh and tasty. Cous cous is the national dish and this is combined with meat, fish or vegetables and spices. A popular fast food is called ‘brik’ which is filo pastry filled with egg and vegetables or meat and then deep fried. Whilst there are bars in purpose built resorts, there are few in the towns of Tunisia. As a Muslim country there is little demand for alcohol and imported brands can be expensive. Local wines are good and reasonably priced. Drink only bottled water and check that the cap is sealed.
