cruise visit

by grumpie

Hi, we are 4 adults, visiting Tunis from 2.30 pm till 7.30 pm in july.
Who has any suggestions on what to do?

Hi

I'd go and spend a few hours in the Bardo museum. It is excellent - great collections of mosaics, sculptures, and art work. It is one of my favourite museums.

There is a very big souk in Tunis which will also be worth a visit.

Have a good trip.

Re: cruise visit

Your cruise ship will probably arrive at La Goulette. The port is a short walk from the TGM suburban train line...going one way will take you to the city centre, going the other will take you along the coast to Carthage and Sidi Bou Said. 5 hours in port isn't long enough to do both, so you've got the choice between big city and seaside ruins/clifftop villages.

If you choose to go into Tunis, the best thing to do would be to head straight for the old city (the medina). Walk round the souqs, visit Zeitona mosque, maybe visit one of the smaller museums, have a mint tea in one of the traditional coffeeshops...the old city is large enough to get lost in, which is part of the fun, but make sure you leave yourselves enough time to get back to the port!

If you choose the coast option, Carthage has several stations...it is a very spread out site, with the ruins scattered among modern houses. A bit further is Sidi Bou Said, a clifftop village with whitewashed houses, all with ornate blue doors. It's a pretty place with great views over the Bay of Tunis, a couple of house museums and some great cafes...but it is touristy, and in July it will be thronging with visitors.

Both Tunis and Sidi Bou Said are about 15-20 minutes from La Goulette by train.

Hope this helps ;@P

Sidi Bou Said is very touristic, but a beautiful place indeed. It's really worth it!

Hi,
If we go to the old city:
Do we have to exchange money? Is there a possibility at the train staion?
How about a taxi? How much would that be? (more or less)

Travel Tips for Tunis

by lunaviews

Explore the streets and buildings for the outstanding tilework - even the bank machines are decorated with the most beautiful colours of tiles. Also, visit the souks (markets) for a real Tunisian experience. My day spent in Sidi Bou Said - a sparkling gem of a village situated high up overlooking the turquoise Mediterranean. All the buildings are stark white and every door is painted the most remarkable blue - specially mixed for the residents. A photographer's dream.

Tunisia is fundamentaly an Islam culture, I found that not all women wore the clothes that most Islam women did, and the Berber women wore the bightest clothing, but politness and an understanding of Islam I think is useful.

Good place, well priced

by Willettsworld about L'Orient

Located to the north of Ave Habib Bourguiba, this is a lovely large place that is well priced. I had a briq chevrettes (prawn crispy pancake filled with an egg) for starter and great 2 thin long pieces of veal for main course at TD12. Service was good but I had to wait a while for the veal to arrive. Beer is TD2.300. This place is popular with businessman whose mobile phones ring every 5 minutes! Good option.

Cathedral

by barryg23

The cathedral on Avenue Bourguiba is one of the more prominent buildings in the Ville Nouvelle. Built during the French occupation at the end of the 19th century it feels a little out of place in a Muslim city. Though when we first saw the Avenue Bourguiba it felt like we were in a French town given the trees, the wide Avenue and all the cafes and restaurants. The Cathedral only adds to the illusion.
