Tunisia Things to Do: 757 reviews and 1,154 photos
Monastir is a beautiful city on the coast, two hours from Tunis if you take the louage. Its important because Habib Bourguiba was born in this city. For this reason, even if its not a big city, you can find all the universities and other facilities there.
Apart from the beach, there are lots of things to visit in Monastir. The most symbolic thing is the Habib Bourguiba's tomb, between the mosque and a very beautiful white cemetery. But the most beautiful thing to visit is the Ribat, the best on its style, facing the sea. The old medina is worth to visit too.
If you are only interested in the monuments you need only one day to visit Monastir well. Its a nice one day excursion to do from Tunis. I suggest you to go there on april-may. The weather is good and there are not a lot of tourists.
A louage from Tunis will cost you 5dinars (one way)
Directions: Central East of Tunisia
