"Tunisia's oldest and holiest arabic city".
Too fast a shortcut for a city which hides so many treasures.

A maze for medina, hiding minaret, wooden doors, children playing football in narrow alleys, and a surprise after each corner

In every street, a story, an open door, a workshop that is just waiting to be discovered...

A city where life goes by, at its own rythm, punctuated by the five daily calls for prayer, the market shopping, the chicha and cafe at the terrace, the discussion with parents and relatives under the sun...

Pros and Cons
  • In a nutshell:A city full of character, than need to be discovered by taking time
