Holidays to Monastir
Sometimes we all need to get away from it all – work, the same four walls, all that rain... so why not visit an amazing country with fascinating history, amazing architecture and, better still near constant sunshine? Even cheap holidays in Monastir are an amazing way to spend a week or two, so when you can get great value with lastminute.com it’s difficult to find a reason not to go.
This beautiful city is a great place to explore with your family or your partner, and it’s definitely a great choice for history buffs. Monastir holidays take you back in time to the ancient Phoenecians, as well as to the late 70s and Monty Python’s Life of Brian. Just make sure that you pack the sun cream and you’re ready to go.
Please note: For all arrivals from 1.10.2013 onwards, there will be a Tourist City Tax of 2 TND per person per night – children under 12 years old are exempt. The tax is payable directly to the hotel upon arrival.
What is there to explore in Monastir?
As ancient cities go, Monastir is pretty ancient. With some amazing buildings, it’s no wonder that the Ribat, a fortified monastery, has been used in so many films. You might recognise it as the stand in for Jerusalem in Monty Python’s Life of Brian so there’s a great opportunity to take some photos if anybody’s been a ‘very naughty boy!’
When you’re taking your holidays in Monastir and you don’t want to get involved in any history or sightseeing, you do have the chance to just relax. Whether you just take a day off from the family and unwind on the beach alone or take the kids down to the sea to see who can make the best Ribat out of sand, just remember that Tunisia is a fairly conservative country and it’s best to wear a one-piece swimsuit rather than a bikini – and we definitely recommend shorts instead of a mankini!
North African food is famous for its spices and rich flavours, and Tunisia certainly isn’t any different. Make sure that you try a bambaloni on your cheap Monastir holidays. These deep fried batter shapes are tossed in sugar and are definitely a bit of a naughty delight. Check out holidays to Tunis and holidays to Sousse for alternative Tunisia holidays.
