Absorb the history at Petit Socco--once the city's cultural nucleus, and today a testimony of those times. Until the 1950s, public life flourished around this square, with numerous banks and business offices, cafes, hotels, restaurants, and casinos. Take a walk around the historic souk, and see the old but well-preserved architecture of the homes where artists once lived. Today, scores of vendors sell handmade items and souvenirs, as well as clothes and accessories. Take a tea break in one of the quaint cafes, which offer excellent spots for people-watching. Petit Socco is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , international travel planner Edition.
