This is a major meetup point for locals and all taxi drivers know this place if you want to get here. Also called Porte de France, This marks the end of the Avenue De France and the start of the Medina of Tunis.

It s the heart of the city..near by shops and restaurants...facing the old souk

This is the entrance to the souks. Its nice. People congregate around here drinking coffee and sweets. The water fountain is nice. Great place to sit and people watch.

It's just a historical gate in the middle of the city. It's just before you enter the Medina. Around the gate is the square where people sit down and relax.

We enjoyed the view from the Hotel Royal Victoria. This monument is centrally located. The square is cleaned every night. It is fun to sit at a cafe and watch people go about their business.

This is one of the gates to the medina, located at the end of Ave Habib Bourguiba on Place de la Victoire. Whenever we walked here there were always street performers entertaining a small crowd.

I enjoyed my afternoons sitting at a cafe or bench watching people..nice location to mingle, take in the local atmosphere and sounds. It’s at the foot of the Medina..nice cafes surround. My special find was a potatoes chip cart vendor, excellent!
