Wasn't all that

Wasn't all that impressed with Tunis to be honest, however the weather was good so it was at least a nice break from the rain back in the UK.

Tunisia Mini Guide

The North African country of Tunisia lies opposite Italy on the other side of the Mediterranean Sea. This great location, which is guaranteed good weather during the summer, makes Tunisia a popular tourist destination. Visitors also like the fact that they can find cheap flights to Tunisia while costs in the country itself are relatively low for holiday makers. The currency of Tunisia is the Tunisian Dinar and one Tunisian Dinar is equal to roughly half a Euro.

To arrive in Tunisia you need not obtain a visa if you are coming from Europe, America, Canada or neighbouring countries such as Algeria. The country’s capital is Tunis and this is where the main airport Tunis-Carthage International Airport is situated. However, there are a number of other airports dotted around the country including Habib Bourguiba Skanes-Monastir which is Tunisia’s second biggest. Tunis Air is the national carrier of Tunisia but look out for charter flights in the summer.

The main roads of Tunisia are the A1, A2 and A3 which cover most locations in the country and you may want to learn some basic French or Arabic in order to have an idea of what the road signs mean. If you need to find somewhere to stay in Tunisia there are lots of hotels but one of the most authentic experiences might be to rent a room from a local person. This will also be your best bet if you want to try local Tunisian food.

In terms of cuisine, Tunisia is similar to what you might find in a lot of North Africa with lamb being the staple meat and dishes often involving couscous, peppers and olives. Be sure to try local dishes such as the Berber lamb and Coucha. Tunisia is a Muslim country but although the availability of alcohol is restricted it is possible to get beer, wine and spirits from some of the supermarkets such as Carrefour. Also most hotels will serve alcohol to guests without a problem. Women travelling on their own through Tunisia should exercise caution and dress modestly while tourists may occasionally be heckled to buy local products.
