Stop At: The National Bardo Museum, P7, Tunis Tunisia
It's the oldest and the most important of Tunisian museums. Over a century ago, it was established in the premises of a Beylical palace, for the most part, built in the mid-XIXth century, and which has retained all the features of a princely residence. It underwent several refurbishments to adapt to the expanding collections and the ever-increasing flows of visitors, but today it is undergoing a huge restructuring plan to improve its visibility and legibility.
Thousands of objects originating from excavations carried out all over the country during the XIXth and XXth centuries are on display. These are divided into departments between fifty or so rooms and galleries, illustrating the various stages of Tunisia’s history, from prehistory to the middle of the last century, which in chronological order are prehistory, the Punic-Libyic period, the Roman and early Christian periods, with the Vandal and Byzantine eras, and finally, the Islamic period running to contemporary times.
Duration: 2 hours
Stop At: Medina of Tunis, Tunis Tunisia
This sprawling maze of ancient streets and alleyways is one of the most impressive medieval medinas in North Africa and one of Tunisia's great treasures. It's home to numerous covered souqs selling everything from shoes to shisha pipes, as well as bustling cafes, back streets full of artisans at work and residential areas punctuated by grand, brightly painted doorways. Historic palaces, hammams, mosques, and madrassas (schools for the study of the Quran) are scattered throughout, many lavishly decorated with tiles, carved stucco, and marble columns.
Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
Stop At: Cathedral of St. Vincent de Paul, Avenue Bourguiba, Tunis Tunisia
Located at Independence Place, a crossroads between Habib Bourguiba Street and France Street, Saint Vincent de Paul Cathedral is equipped with the richest architect and history. Saint-Vincent-de-Paul Cathedral was built between 1893 and 1897, on the former Saint Antoine cemetery. The latter was donated in the 17th century by the Tunis Beys to the Catholic community. First intended for the burial of slaves in convicts, it later became the cemetery of the European colony in Tunis. In 1650, Father Jean Le Vacher built a chapel there called "La Chapelle Saint Antoine", considered to be the oldest Christian monument in Tunis.
Although the construction of this cathedral was interrupted several times, the end result was sumptuous architecture. Combining Byzantine style and Roman style
After the independence of Tunisia in 1964, Saint-Vincent-de-Paul cathedral became a property of the Catholic Church. In 1998, she welcomed Pope John Paul II, who was visiting Tunisia.
Duration: 30 minutes
Stop At: Baths of Antoninus, Impasse des Thermes d'Antonin Site Archoologique de Carthage, Carthage 2016 Tunisia
A large complex of Roman baths built in the 2nd century which is today part of an archaeological park.
Duration: 45 minutes
Stop At: Site Archeologique de Carthage, Carthage Tunisia
Carthage was the first of Tunisian archaeological, historical or natural sites and monuments to be inscribed, on October 26, 1979, on the UNESCO World Heritage List. An archaeological but also a historical site, full of events relating to various ancient times but also others, Carthage has not only been the field of action of several generations of archaeologists and historians. For several centuries, it has inspired novelists and poets (it would suffice to recall the Aeneid of Virgil who recounted, in verse, the loves of Dido, the founder of Carthage with Aeneas, the Trojan, founder of Rome and the Salammbô de Flaubert) as well as filmmakers, playwrights, and painters.
Duration: 30 minutes
Stop At: Carthage Museuma, Byrsa Hill, Carthage 2016 Tunisia
In the center of the city of Carthage, the national museum of Carthage stands at the top of the hill of Byrsa, a symbolic location, where the ancient Punic city was built: we notice around the vestiges dating back to the 2nd century BC. We take advantage of the passage from the point of view of the surroundings. It is the oldest Tunisian museum since it was created in 1875: it serves as a witness to the important and numerous archaeological discoveries that have been made on the site of Carthage. We rediscover the turbulent history of this city which was the center of a rich civilization.
Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
Stop At: Sidi Bou Said, Tunisia
With its distinctive blue-and-white color scheme, cobbled streets, and jaw-dropping glimpses of azure waters, the cliff-top village of Sidi Bou Saïd is one of the prettiest spots in Tunisia. Named after a 13th-century Sufi saint, its distinctive architecture is a mix of the Ottoman and the Andalusian, a result of the influx of Spanish Muslims in the 16th century. For the French, the sleepy fishing village was a perfect depiction of the Orientalism romanticized by Europeans in the 19th century, and they committed to ensuring that its character – both real and imagined – was preserved (it was given protected status in 1915). Past residents and visitors include artist Paul Klee, author André Gide, philosopher Michel Foucault, and arty British eccentrics Osbert and Edith Sitwell. It still retains a sense of North African fantasia today, both for visitors and interestingly enough, for Tunisians themselves.
