Flights to Tunis

On the map it may look like a little sliver of land by the Mediterranean Sea, but don’t let the size of Tunisia’s capital fool you. Right from the moment your flight to Tunis lands, this tranquil yet bustling city packs a punch.

It was only in 1956 that Tunis achieved independence as the capital of Tunisia, and today there are a number of global influences evident in this North African city, including Spanish, French and German.

This is particularly reflected in the new areas, where the streets have been likened to those in Paris or Barcelona. It's no surprise, then, that Tunis is one of the most modern cities in the North African and Arab world, not to mention one of the most relaxed.

Over on the opposite side of the city is The Medina of Tunis, now a Unesco World Heritage Site. This network of narrow alleyways featuring mosques, palaces and souks is where you’ll be able to explore the history of Tunis and meet its local people. It’s dominated by the city’s great mosque, Al-Zaytuna, as well as the beautiful Cathedral of St Vincent de Paul. The district is also the city’s traditional shopping area, with every type of souvenir available.

Look out for other notable landmarks including the two sea gates: Bab El-Jedid Gate and Bab El-Bahr Gate; as well as the noble houses of Dar Hussein, Dar Ben Abdallah and Dar Lasram. Apart from culture, one of the best things about Tunis is the food, and there are a lot of places to eat. The locals savour their traditional cuisine, which can be found in a plethora of restaurants across the city. So sit back, relax and enjoy the Tunisian way of life during your stay.

What to do in Tunis

Browse the souks

Tunis’ Medina is known for its colourful souks that sell everything from spices to kitchenware. Start at Bab El-Bahr, but avoid the main tourist areas and go off the beaten track into the more tucked-away alleyways. This is where you’ll catch the city’s real working market.

Rue de la Kasbah

Explore the city’s history

It’s well worth taking half a day out to walk around the ancient areas of the city. The highlight of your tour should be Al-Zaytuna Mosque, the largest Muslim place of worship in Tunisia, which dates back to the eighth century. Also worth seeing is the National Bardo Museum (or le Musée National du Bardo), which is home to a fascinating collection of Roman mosaics.

Explore Belvedere Park

Overlooking Lake Tunis, Belvedere Park is absolutely stunning, and the perfect place to spend a lazy afternoon. Not only is the largest park in Tunis filled with lush green areas and flora, it also houses the city’s Museum of Modern Art as well as the Tunis Zoo.

Where to eat in Tunis

Le Rest’ô de Villa Didon (Mediterranean)

For excellent Mediterranean cuisine paired with magnificent views of the city, Le Rest’ô de Villa Didon is well worth splashing out on. With Philippe Starck furnishings and excellent service, this is where the local crowd likes to see and be seen. Leave room for dessert – their vanilla cheesecake is delicious.

La Spigola (Seafood)

If it’s fresh seafood you’re after, then La Spigola is the place to be. Once seated, you’ll be presented with a platter of fish to choose from, and your pick is then freshly grilled on the spot. Their signature dish is prawns a la gargoulette, cooked with tomato and vegetables.

Fondouk El Attarine (Tunisian)
