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.
Kick off your visit on the 18th (Sat): contemplate the long history of Bourghiba Mausoleum, explore the historical opulence of Ribat of Monastir, then explore the ancient world of Amphitheatre of El Jem, and finally take in the spiritual surroundings of The Great Mosque of Kairouan. On your second day here, get engrossed in the history at Sousse Archaeological Museum, steep yourself in history at Medina of Sousse, then play a few rounds at El Kantaoui Golf Course, and finally don't miss a visit to Passengers Design Store.

Plan a trip to Sousse easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

Manchester, UK to Sousse is an approximately 8- hour combination of flight and bus. You can also fly; or do a combination of train and flight. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Manchester to Sousse due to the time zone difference. Plan for a bit warmer temperatures traveling from Manchester in January, with highs in Sousse at 20°C and lows at 10°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Sun) early enough to travel to Tozeur.
