Railway Station/Bus Station

by hawkhead

Can anyone tell me

a) how far it is from where the airport bus arrives in 'downtown' Tunis to the railway station?

b) houw far it is from where the airport bus arrives in 'downtown' Tunis to where the Metro starts?

c) how far it is from the Tunis stop of the Metro to where the louages go to Teboursouk/Dougga? I think there are a couple of louage stations in Tunis.......

I would try and work it out for myself but I have exhausted the possibilities on the internet, and am going round in circles and my copy of Rough Guide to Tunisia seems to have been lost in the post.

Many thanks for any assistance.

Hi ~ hope this helps
a) and b) An easy 10-15 minutes walk. From airport bus stop walk along main street Ave Habib Bourguiba. After going past Hotel Africa on the left turn down Rue de Hollande and both the railway station and metro stop are situated on Place Barcelone.

c) From Place Barcelone go to metro leger line north (line 4) to Bouchoucha (6 stops) Then walk back along leger line towards Tunis approx 150m and turn left to luage/northern bus station. I visited Douga (loved it) on a day trip from Le Kef. and used public buses.

If time allows I recommend Bizerte ~ it's lovely.

Thank you - that's hugely helpful information. I'll add Bizerte to the list. I am in the middle of organising an extended stay and hope you won't mind if I communicate with you in due course, in order to pick your brains and/or ask for advice, tips, etc.

A taxi from the airport to the railway station should only cost around 7 TD if you ensure the meter is used. We got conned for 15TD on arrival but on departure the driver used the meter and added both our rucksacks at 1TD each and we still only paid 7TD.
Hawkhead, if you get anything un-answered do send me a message, as like yourself I have been to Tunisia many times, sometimes back-packing and sometimes driving from UK. Dougga is a must see in my opinion and I'm not one for guides normally but this is one place that the guide made a real difference.
Different destinations go from different areas of the town as far as louages go but someone will always be able to point you in the right direction.

Many thanks, Kevin. I have added you to my diy travel guide, and I am quite sure that there will be more questions. Thank you for the offer!

Travel Tips for Tunis

Doors & Windows

by aliante1981

Many Tunisian towns and cities, including the capital city of Tunis, have since long been famous for the beautiful gates and windows of the houses. While the houses might be simple and minimalist, with just white walls and occasionally, scenes of the Hadj to Mecca, the wealth of the owners transpired in the workmanship of these traditional - and highly useful :)) - elements.

The dominating colours for doors are blue and beige (remember the door on the front page of one of the Lonely Planet guides?) with iron decorations in ornaments and often elaborate door knobs, while windows are dominated by blue.

Bardo Museum

by croisbeauty

The Bardo National Museum was inaugurated in 1888, with probably the world's best display of mosaics and certainly North Africa's best Roman collection.
This is the Corridor of Stelae and Sarcophagi, these and marble funerary statues.

Visit Sidi Bou Said

by chrissyalex

You must,must.must visit Sidi Bou Said! Sidi Bou Said a a town located about a 20 minute train ride outside of Tunis and it is GORGEOUS! All the buildings are whitewashed with bright blue trim and it is located on a high hiil overlooking the sea. Please visit my Sidi Bou Said page for for details and pictures.

Other Cafes

by Willettsworld about Other Cafes

Ave Habib Bourguiba is Tunis' answer to Paris' Champs Elysees and like its more famous French cousin, is lined with several cafe where the locals sit out under unbrellas at all times of the day and people watch. A cafe aux lait varies in price rather dramatically depending on which cafe you plumb for. For example it costs TD1.200 at the Cafe de Paris and a rather expensive TD2.500 at the El Hana International whilst only costing 900 mills at a cafe opposite the 5-star Africa Hotel.
