City highlights, food & drinks, expressions, weather, how to get there and how to get around

Tunis is a bustling metropolitan city, with beautiful colonial buildings and views of the coast. Experience the vast landscapes, tales of history, and spirit of adventure during your Tunis day trips. With blue skies and the curves of the coast behind you, start your trip off right by exploring the amazing ruins of the former Roman colonies that lay nestled along the shorelines. Visit the Bardo Museum to see magnificent ancient artifacts or spend a lazy afternoon exploring every nook and cranny of the city center. Wander around the many souks, looking at the carpets, bird cages, and necklaces. Beat the heat in a charming café or explore a maze of alleys in the heart of the city

Some of the must-see sights in Tunis are Carthage, the Prado National Museum, and the Olive Tree Mosque. People watch around the bustling Medina District or spend time at New Town, or Ville Nouvelle, and see the eclectic hipster shops

A few must-eat Tunisian dishes include couscous and a fiery soup called Ojja. Lamb is eaten more than chicken or fish in Tunis, so get your fill of lamb while there. Dishes and sides of bread are topped with harissa, a spicy garlic and chili mixture

“AAslemma” means “Hello” and “Goodbye” is “Bislemma”. “Shukran” means “Thank you” in Arabic. To say “Please”, it is “Min Fadhlik”,  “Sorry” is “Samahhni”, and after a meal natives give thanks to God by saying “Hamdoulilah”

Summers in Tunis are around 100 degrees, even in the shade. The fall season cools off the city with highs in the 80s and no rain. Winter hovers around 60 to 70 degrees, with rainy overcast skies. Spring is pleasant at highs of 70 degrees

A taxi ride from the airport to the city center will cost around 5 dinars. The SNT bus line leaves from the airport every 30 minutes and costs 1 dinar. The TUT bus line leave every 15 minutes and are more expensive, costing 3 dinars
