What’s there to see in Tunis?
You know when you’re on holiday that the first question you’ll get asked when you get home, after ‘how was the weather?’ is going to be ‘what did you get me?’ On holidays to Tunis you can marry sightseeing with souvenir shopping in the city’s souk. One of the most authentic and hassle-free souks in North Africa, this market is a great place to hunt down unique gifts as well as getting a free side order of Tunisian culture.
If you don’t really fancy that, then of course you can head down to the beach for a spot of sunbathing. Just remember that while Tunisia might not be as conservative as other North African countries, you’re still better off wearing a one piece swimsuit than a bikini. Once you’ve caught enough sun on your Tunis holidays you should head to some of the city’s museums for a touch of culture and history – and a very, very large number of mosaics.
Holidays to Tunis are a great chance to explore the capital city of a vibrant and fast changing nation. One thing that hasn’t changed is the French influence though, especially in the coffee shops! You could gorge to your heart’s content on delicious pastries, all washed down with a glass of peppermint tea.
