More About Tunis

Tunis is a vibrant yet laid-back capital city, equally happy looking to Mediterranean traditions as its Arab and African roots. It's an attitude reflected in its architecture, with the old Arab medina sat next to the French colonial Ville Nouvelle (New Town).

The medina is Tunis’s historic and spiritual heart. A winding maze of alleys and souks, all paths seem to lead to the 8th-century Zeytouna Mosque, built in AD732.

The contrast with the palm trees and café terraces of the ville nouvelle's avenue Habib Bourguiba could not be greater. Old men in traditional dress watch suited office workers and the young go past in jeans and shirts, this is Tunis.

In the suburbs are the impressive ruins of the ancient city of Carthage, from where Hannibal set forth to drive his elephants over the Alps.

Also nearby is Tunisia's most beautiful village, Sidi Bou Said, inspiration to many artists, and the gorgeous white-sand beaches of La Marsa.

Tunis Ferry Port

Several ferries connect Tunis with Europe, a good option if you want to bring in your car. The SNCM ferry does two weekly crossings from Marseille in the south of France to Tunis, while Grandi Navi Veloce operates regular ferries from Civitavecchia, Palermo and Genoa in Italy. Reservations are essential, particularly in summer.

The ferries to Tunis arrive in the port of La Goulette, 12km (7 miles) from the city centre. Only use the official yellow metered taxis waiting outside the port, the private taxis waiting inside the port often overcharge.

Tunis Tourist Information

Tourist information:
Office de Tourisme de Tunis
1 avenue Mohammed V, Tunis
Tel: (071) 341 077.
Website: www.cometotunisia.co.uk

This is the main tourist office in Tunis. It is located in the New Town near the train station Tunis Maritime. The staff is helpful but there are few useful handouts, except for a free city map, and an excellent map of the medina with a suggested walking tour. They offer information on public transport and travel in the rest of the country.

There is another tourist office with slightly more brochures and handouts at the railway station (place de Barcelone).

Al-Zaytuna Mosque
The medina grew around Tunis's largest mosque, Al-Zaytuna Mosque (Mosque of the Olive Tree), covering over 5,000 sq m (53,820 sq ft) and the only one open to non-Muslims – although only as far as the central courtyard. One of the oldest mosques in Africa, it was built in AD732, often using stones from nearby Roman Carthage, but it flourished from the 13th century onwards as an important Islamic university.

Habib Bourguiba
Tunis’s main thoroughfare is the elegant and wide tree-lined avenue Habib Bourguiba, which runs from the TGM train station to the main entrance to the medina. Lined with banks, shops, restaurants and café terraces where Tunisians converge in the late afternoon, it also boasts the grand art nouveau Municipal Theatre and the 19th-century Cathédrale de St Vincent de Paul. A statue of the great medieval Arab (and Tunisian) scholar Ibn Khaldun stands opposite the cathedral, while modern Tunisia is represented by the huge clock tower built to commemorate the presidency of Ben Ali.

Tunisia Dar Ben Abdallah Museum
One of the best-preserved medina palaces in Tunis, the impressive late 18th-century house of Dar Ben Abdallah has a rich collection of furniture, textiles and crafts, giving a fascinating glimpse into what 19th-century life was like in the medina for the wealthy. Housing the Museum of Popular Arts and Traditions, it's a great place to see the finest examples of traditional arts and crafts – you can still see much of the same handiwork being produced in the medina.

Musée National du Bardo
Built in the 13th century, and recently extensively renovated and reorganised, this splendid palace is now not only an outstanding example of Arab-Muslim architecture, but it also houses Tunisia's national museum. The main reason to come here is to see the astounding array of Roman mosaics, the largest and finest single collection in the world, dating from the second century BC to the seventh century AD. The Greek and Islamic holdings are also excellent. Arrive either early or later in the day to miss the massed tour groups.

Tourbet el-Bey
This splendid 18th-century Ottoman mausoleum, the largest in Tunis, is where more than 160 Husaynid princes, ministers and their families are buried. The sumptuous interior is decorated with tiles, marble and carved plasterwork. The motif of the eight-pointed star represents the doors of paradise.

Tunis Medina
A UNESCO World Heritage site, the medina, or old quarter, of Tunis was built during the seventh century AD. From the 12th to the 16th centuries, Tunis was considered to be one of the greatest and wealthiest cities of the Islamic world and its medina is testimony to its former grandeur. Today, visitors can step back in time through the maze of narrow, winding streets, and barter for souvenirs with the locals; goods on sale include colourful hand-made carpets, hand-crafted jewellery, copper and brassware, pottery and exotic spices.

The endlessly twisting streets can be disorientating, but it's as much fun to give yourself over to random exploration and the happy accidents of discovering traditional craftsmen, food markets and ancient monuments. Among the more frequented attractions found within the walls of the medina are the ninth-century Al-Zaytuna Mosque (Mosque of the Olive Tree), the perfume makers' Souk el Attarine and Tunis's first Ottoman-style mosque, Sidi Yousef, built in the 17th century.
