5 must-see places in Tunisia – Discovering a Universe of Wonders

Tunisia may be the smallest country in North Africa, but it nonetheless beholds a treasure-trove of attractions. This exquisite destination has plenty to see, and below are to name a few.


Tunis Medina

This is without a doubt the most beautiful part of the country. This age-old Arab walled town has a historic feel to it and is known as the Medina. Everything from the architecture to the traditional souqs has Arabia written all over it. This is a great place to not only experience a very authentic side of Tunisia it is also a fantastic place to get your souvenir shopping sorted. Haggling is big here so if you are good at this you can even get your hands-on gold for some excellent prices. The atmosphere is undoubtedly intoxicating and will linger in your memory long after you have left the place. For those of you staying at The Residence Tunis by Cenizaro, the Tunis Medina is easily accessible.



Its palm tree's galore in this part of Tunisia and the picture it creates is nothing short of perfection. Far away from the cities, this part of Tunisia still retains its natural beauty and is a great place to enjoy some sun and wind. Located at the foothills of the famous mountains of the Djebel el Negueb, Chebika feels like an oasis of paradise. With lush waterfalls and endless palm trees, you can easily get lost in the beauty of Chebika.



This little strip of coast is one of Tunisia's most popular tourist destinations. At one time the Hammamet was nothing but a mere fishing village that was surrounded by lemon groves. Today it is a successful resort town and houses a number of renowned properties. The beaches are exquisite in this part of Tunisia and the waters are warm making it the perfect spot for some fun with water sports.


Sidi Bou Said

If you are into capturing some spectacular photographs, Sidi Bou Said offers some great photo opportunities. This spot is perched at the top of a cliff and flaunts some of the most beautiful traditional buildings all of which are coloured mainly in white with a little bit of brilliant blue here and there. Overlooking the Mediterranean Ocean, this is arguably the prettiest little town in all of Tunisia. Sidi Bou Said is primarily a residential area but you do find here boutique hotels, cafes, art shops and souvenir stalls.


The Sahara

Of all of the Tunis attractions, experiencing the desert side of this nation is one of the things that must be done. The Sahara Desert is the world's largest desert and the best part is it is found in Tunisia. You need to arrange a separate tour to visit Sahara but once you go there you will realize that it was well worth it. This desert is a magical place, to say the least.
