Known for its historic medina quarter, a World Heritage Site, the city of Sousse boasts a rich history that dates back to the 11th century BCE.
For shopping fun, head to Medina of Sousse or Ahla Shopping Center. Your inner history buff will appreciate Amphitheatre of El Jem and Ribat of Monastir. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Sousse: Archaeological Museum of El-Djem (in El-Jem), Mahdia Beach (in Mahdia) and Kairouan (The Great Mosque of Kairouan & Governor's House). And it doesn't end there: take an in-depth tour of Sousse Archaeological Museum, get your game on at Magiceye 3D Experince, and contemplate the long history of Bourghiba Mausoleum.

To find other places to visit, where to stay, ratings, and other tourist information, refer to the Sousse trip itinerary maker tool.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates to Sousse is an approximately 16.5-hour combination of flight and car. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 3 hours traveling from Dubai to Sousse. Traveling from Dubai in October, things will get slightly colder in Sousse: highs are around 31°C and lows about 22°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 21st (Mon) so you can go by car to Tunis.
