Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Cannot recommend this enough.  If you are travelling around Tunisia and visiting some of the ancient sites then definitely come here as the collection at the Bardo Museum will provide valuable information.  The mosaics in particular were spectacular.  There is a lot to see and you could easily spend half a day here.  I did just over two hours as I started to have information overload and it was incredibly hot inside.  The entrance fee is very cheap.  Information is in English, French and Arabic.  I would suggest starting at the top and working your way down as most of the important pieces are here.  Go early in the day.  I went when they opened, as I said it is very warm inside and the top floor is exposed to sunlight with no air conditioning.  Easy to navigate but at the same time, rooms don't follow an order.  I would have given this a 4 rating but I feel the museum could enhance the experience for visitors.  It does after all house a valuable collection as well as being the finest museum in Tunisia.  They could have audioguides and also maybe highlight the important pieces.  It can be easy to bypass some.  I had a guide book with me which pointed out the main pieces to look out for.  Another thing is if you go alone like me, try and avoid the tour groups as they can be very loud and tend to crowd over everything!  In some respects, it may be better to have a guide but depends on the individual.  Security is tight as you can imagine due to the terrorist attack in 2015.  I used Bolt to request a ride from my hotel near Médina de Tunis which was super cheap.  The museum appeared to have WIFI in the reception but it didn't work.  They are located on a busy road so you could hail a taxi after you have finished or if you have data and able to connect, just order a ride back with BOLT.  Much easier than public transport.

    The Medina or Old Town of North African countries are always exciting to explore. Don't worry about losing your bearings, just get lost in the warren of narrow alleyways, enjoy and discover !

    In the middle of Tunis' medina you will find Zitouna Mosque, the second oldest one in Tunisia, after the Mosque of Uqba in Kairouan. Like Uqba, Zitouna has pilfered the Roman site of Carthage in search of building materials, mainly columns. The original structure dates back to early 8th century, but a large part, including the square minaret was added by the Aghlabids in the 9th and the Zirids in the 10th.
    The whole structure is huge ; especially the central courtyard, which has some wells and a sundial.

    It's a very big church and shows that all of the desert religions have a major importance in this port city. Our tour guide emphasized this fact. You will find this church on the major street in the modern city.

    Your likely to come here as it leads into the Médina de Tunis. Not spectacular. Parts are covered in graffiti. Not well looked after. Nice atmosphere watching the locals and children playing. Avoid going after dark as it becomes isolated with a few shady characters around.

    As I walked further and further into the Médina de Tunis, each door became prettier and prettier. Similar in design but colours were different and the location. Some doors were in the heart of the Médina de Tunis, others were in isolated cobbled alleyways with pretty flowers. Beautiful. Timeless. Also pay attention to the door knockers. I had a guide with me who explained some history about the doors.

    A fascinating glimpse of life in Ottoman times; a beautiful series of vaulted rooms containing the marble sarcophagi of many of the Beys and there families.
    We were let in by a charming elderly gentleman who gave us an interesting tour (in French only).
    My wife and I walked to the tourbet through the medina in the middle of the day and felt no unease whatever about our safety; most of the people we encountered were schoolchildren.

    Had I not been with a guide, I would never have known! Great place to see local life. The market is clean but the part where they sell fish is a little slippery as floors are wet so mind how you walk. There is fresh fruit, bread and more. I was told by my guide that prices are very reasonable. If you are vegetarian or can't stand the smell of fish or meat, then maybe avoid these areas. Highly recommend.
