Explore the intriguing walled medinas, souks and spectacular colourful bazaars and haggle for a bargain from a local trader selling some of the beautiful handicrafts available including blue and white pottery, hand painted tiles, hand engraved copper, woven rugs and decorative baskets, all which will make wonderful souvenirs of a memorable holiday to Tunisia.
