    Avenue Habib Bourguiba is Tunis' Champs Elysees and runs from near the Medina in front of the cathedral to Lake Tunis and the port. It runs through the French part of the city known as Ville Nouvelle on land reclaimed from Lake Tunis in the 19th century. Just like the Champs Elysees in Paris, it is lined with cafes and a few hotels as well as some nice French colonnial buildings such as the National Theatre and French Embassy. The central part of the road is pedestrian and lined with trees and makes for a nice walk.

    Although life is very simple in inner Tunisia, Tunis, the capital, is a busy metropolis with new, modern buildings, like this one.
    The main street in Tunis is named after theif firs president as Avenue Habib Bourguiba. It is exactly 1 mile long. It is streched from the edge of the lake "the little sea" to the entrance of the medina.

    Avenue Habib Bourguiba is the main thoroughfare in the centre of Tunis.

    It leads from the medina to Place du 7 Novembre, with its imposing clock, situated where a statue of Habib Bourguiba (Tunisian president from 1956 to 1987) once stood.

    It is known as the "Champs Elysees of Tunis", but, while it is impressive, such claims seem somewhat exaggerated. However, I've never been to the more famous Paris namesake, so maybe I'm wrong!
