About Tunis

Divided into two sections, the ville novelle (new city) and medina (Arabic old city) Tunis is a fascinating city with some of Northern Africa's best markets. The medina, with its winding streets, hidden places and vaulted alleys, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and, not surprisingly, the main attraction for tourists. The ancient city of Carthage is equally accessible from Tunis. Hotels usually include a few meals with your stay, while coffee shops are plentiful, and restaurants often serve the traditional tagine, a dish cooked in a clay pot with a cone-shaped lid. Italian, French and Arabic influences all combine in a wonderful mix as easy to lose yourself in as the warrens of the medina.
