Typical Souvenirs

Typical souvenirs are pointed “babouche” slippers and embroidered gowns that can double up as evening wear. The hand carved olive wood items (salad bowls, kitchen articles, vases, lamps) are also popular items and original gifts from the Mediterranean to bring back home!


If you like haggling, you will enjoy shopping in Monastir! Start by cutting the offer in half, and then work your way up to a compromise if you are really interested. If you prefer fixed prices at the controlled handicrafts shops, try just outside the Medina or if you have time the large Soula Centre in Sousse.
