Hi,
I only have an advice. Forget about the taxi option, this will cost you so much unless u meant the "louage": mini vans).
You can use the train from Sousse to tunis, in tunis use the suburbs train from TGM station. From SOusse to Tunis-Sidi bou said, the ride time is approximately 2 hrs 30.
You re coming on 8th, please note that april 9th will be a day off.
enjoy,

Travel Tips for Sidi Bou Said

Money Matters

by MikeAtSea

The local currency is the Dinar. American Express, Visa and travellers cheques are widely accepted, and the US dollar is a good currency to carry them in. ATMs are found in almost every town large enough to support a bank and certainly in all the tourist areas. Credit cards are accepted in souvenir shops and upmarket hotels and restaurants.

The Blue Doors of Sidi Bou Said

by barryg23

I liked the bright doorways of the houses in Sidi Bou Said. Doorways in Tunisia in general, and in Sidi Bou Said in particular are far more ornamental and elegant than your regular western style door. Most are blue though occasionally you come across a different colour. The coloured doors looked great against the white walls.

How Sidi Bou Said got its name!

by chrissyalex

Here is a story for romantics!:-) According to legend,St. Louis did not die on Byrsa Hill in Carthage! Instead,he fell in love with a beautiful Berber princess! He moved to this town to live his life with her happily ever after and changed his name to Abou Said ibn Khaley ibn Yahia Ettamini e Beji....or Sidi Bou Said for short! :-) Legend has it he was able to cure rheumatism and also could stop scorpions from stinging. He lived here happily and peacefully for many years and the town was named after him. Every August, there is a festival in his honor.

The doors

by croisbeauty

Like everywhere else in Tunisia, I was most attracted by the doors of the houses which are of exceptional beauty. Most of the doors are carefully painted with predominant light and blur colour. Those in rich houses are often adorned with stone portal.

Bargain!

by aliante1981

Well, this is a local custom for all (or almost all) the Eastern and North African coountries. And, though, you can not bargain down the price in the supermarkets or top-of-the-range shops, this is perfectly acceptable and even should be done if you are at a street market or in a small shop .

More than that, the vendors may actually feel offended if you do not bargain.
