    I found Tunis unexpectedly pleasant and impressive. I had assumed the city would be dirty chaos but found it quite charming. Sidi Bou Said is a more pleasant base for exploring but there are some lovely boutique hotels here hidden within the old medina. Visit the mosque and the massive souq. A nice place to explore and really soak up the atmosphere.

    It attracts lovers Sea, pedophiles desert, Mutaimin بعبق history and civilizations of the Middle addition to tourism conferences and festivals. Beaches stretch to nearly 1,300 km centered on the length of perhaps the most important tourist poles Sousse, Monastir, Hammamet, Mahdia, Bizerte, Tabarka

    Something about the blue doors in Tunisia that really captivated me. I was told the doors were blue to keep the places cool and protect against Mosquitos. However, walking the streets of Tunis, one exotic blue door after the next, made me stir of feelings of intrigue, curiosity and the desire to understand the Tunisian culture better. There is so much to do this day, that I am not quite certain I understand about Tunisia... So many juxtapositions, beautiful symbolisms, warm people, vast landscapes... However, certain societal behaviors left me uncomfortable and desirous to learn more.

    Very cheap holiday. Your get great value of your money considering you are very far away. The hotels are huge and well catered for. There are all ways taxis around the place. There are lots of markets where people will try and sell you stuff that are maximum 20 mins away. If you are blond or fair haired they will take a special liking to you.

Description

Divided into two sections, the ville nouvelle (new city) and medina (Arabic old city) Tunis is a fascinating city with some of Northern Africa's best markets (souks). The medina, with its winding streets, hidden palaces and vaulted alleys, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and, not surprisingly, the main attraction for tourists. The ancient city of Carthage is also accessible from Tunis. Hotels usually include a few meals with your stay, while coffee shops are plentiful, and restaurants often serve the traditional tagine, a dish cooked in a clay pot with a cone-shaped lid. Italian, French and Arabic influences all combine in a wonderful mix as easy to lose yourself in as the warrens of the medina.
