Sousse is a historic city, with pristine beaches, old stone walls and elegant palm trees are listed by UNESCO in the World Heritage category. Cascading in layers along the hillside, take pleasure in exploring the narrow alleyways while glimpsing every now and then the depth of colour in the sea.
The old town keeps close the mystery of medieval stone walls and the numerous ancient monuments, and to its past, as a stronghold. A small fort was known as the Rabat a religious retreat, the imposing Great Mosque, and the lively surrounds of the Kasbah, all combine to make the third most important city in Tunisia, a place to spend some time.
Sousse is at the heart of a significant olive growing region, the oil present in many local dishes including salads, tempting stews, octopus dishes and delicate pastries.
