Here, we will get confused in the crowd and we will be guided through the everyday life of the Medina: this excursion will offer us the opportunity to discover and enjoy the city, rather than city visiting.
Certainly, there are a lot of attractions, and it’s impossible not to visit one the most wonderful arabian palaces, called Dar Hussein Palace, built in 18th century, that houses the National Institute of Art and Archaeology.
