"Grand Avenue Bourguiba." Gouvernorat de Tunis Things to Do Tip by euzkadi

Gouvernorat de Tunis Things to Do: 31 reviews and 65 photos


This avenue is the main axis of the city, and is crowded with outdoors cafés and restaurants. The Avenue starts in the Clock Tower and finish in the Bab el Bahr or the Gate of the Sea. The avenue contains some of the main points of interest of the Ville Nouvelle as the Cathedral of Saint Vincent of Paul, the French Embassy and the Municipal Theatre. The avenue is the city´s place to see and be seen, people walk both sides of the avenue and then stop for a tea or a coffe in some of the many cafés. It´s specially lively during the night, when the buildings are illuminated. I liked the french flavour of the avenue, it reminds me the Parisian Champs Elisees.
