"Be careful what you photograph" Top 5 Page for this destination Tunisia Warnings Or Dangers Tip by barryg23

Tunisia Warnings and Dangers: 121 reviews and 59 photos

Visitors should not take pictures of anything connected with the Tunisian Military. Even taking pictures of buildings connected with politics might cause you problems. The Presidential Palace at Carthage is a good example of this. Unfortunately this is situated next to the beautiful Roman Baths so it‘s very hard not to point your camera in that direction.

In some cases buildings will have visible signs outside indicating that photography is forbidden. If you say a soldier or policeman standing guard outside somewhere it’s probably off-limits for pictures as well.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
