  Sidi Bou Said
by sachara

Sidi Bou Said, just north of Tunis, is a very known and popular place to visit. Its location high on a cliff at the Mediterranean together with the white-washed houses with bright blue coloured doors and windows make this village very scenic.

The first time I visited Sidi Bou Said during an excursion, coming from Sousse. At that time it was very crowded with tourists. Later I visited the town a few times in winter, while staying in la Marsa nearby. In the winter season the town has a very relaxed and laid-back atmosphere without many tourists .

Directions: Easily to reach by TGM line from Tunis to la Marsa in less than half a hour.

Review Helpfulness: 4 out of 5 stars
