Favorite thing: Avenue Habib Bourguiba is the "Champs Elysses" of Tunis. This mile long tree shaded street is Tunis's most famous and it is lined with shops,cafes and banks.
It is named after Tunisia's first president, Habib Bourguiba. His policies made Tunisia one of the world's most moderate Arab nations. He was very important to women's rights and made polygamy against the law and gave women equal rights in divorce. He also did much for education,healthcare and agriculture.
