"Tunis - Avenue Habib Bourguiba" Tunisia Things to Do Tip by Willettsworld

Tunisia Things to Do: 757 reviews and 1,154 photos


Avenue Habib Bourguiba is Tunis' Champs Elysees and runs from near the Medina in front of the cathedral to Lake Tunis and the port. It runs through the French part of the city known as Ville Nouvelle on land reclaimed from Lake Tunis in the 19th century. Just like the Champs Elysees in Paris, it is lined with cafes and a few hotels as well as some nice French colonnial buildings such as the National Theatre and French Embassy. The central part of the road is pedestrian and lined with trees and makes for a nice walk.
