Tunis is the capital city of Tunisia, situated on the northern coast of the country and bordering the Mediterranean Sea. The port is used as the gateway to Europe, with ferry routes heading to Marseille in France and many ports around Italy.
Tunis marries authentic Africa with the cosmopolitan feel of southern Europe; religious buildings boasting striking spires intertwine between a metropolis of trendy bars and thriving restaurants – the city centre represents a myriad of cultures from across the globe in its array of eateries and outlets. The main stretch of amenities lies in the Habib Bourguiba, an avenue drenched in coffee places, refreshing cafes and cosy spaces to sit and watch the passers-by amidst the pleasant weather.
Alongside the monasteries and mosques, Tunis displays a wealth of culture; Bardo Musuem offers a fascinating insight into the history of Tunisia’s north coast, the perfect trip for anyone with a thirst for history. The museum showcases the city’s proud past, but for an exploration of the present architecture and infrastructure, the Medina Tunis is a mecca of traditional residential areas. The residential estates and urban design exude a busy city feel, but Tunis’ selling point lies in its proximity to the coast – the beach is always just a short ride away.
Tunis has a plethora of public transport options, so transportation is rife in the city.
