The medina of Tozeur is unique because of it's use of the white-brick construction original to Iraq. It's breathtakingly beautiful. If you haven't been around the Arab world much and medinas are new to you- this is a MUST see. If you have experienced a...More

Interesting medina with old narrow streets and tunnels. It is special becouse of bricks they use for making houses. They make attractive decor on the wals, Nice to stop in a galery, shop or a tea house. Specialy in one with a view over rooftops.

Wander through the narrow alleyways and admire the old buildings with their distinctive brickwork. In an hour you can see it all, the area is really quite small.

Tozeur has great charm... so while you are certain to see a typical Tunisian medina, you can experience much more by immersing yourself and using your imagination. Since it's significantly smaller than larger cities, this medina is friendlier and more comfortable when getting lost within...More

It was really pleasant to get lost in the Medina. Many cul de sac, and small streets with a lot of charming doors. It was relatively quiet (January in the afternoon) and safe to go around, we only saw a few kids around.
