Cheap Flights to Tunis
Acting as the capital of Tunisia, Tunis is an eclectic city characterised by an exceptional blend of authentic charm and architectural brilliance. Discover a maze of winding lanes and alleyways when you visit the city’s medina whose history dates back to the 9th century. Named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979, the medina is home to innumerable sites of interest, comprising mosques, fountains, madrasas, and palaces; making it the perfect location for meandering. For those interested in seeing signs of Tunis’ more recent past, the Ville Nouvelle is a testament to the French influence of yesteryear. Here one can find the impressive Avenue Habib Bourguiba – often dubbed ‘The Tunisian Champs-Élysées’.
Besides countless opportunities for picking up some traditional spices or finding unique gifts, the city boasts iconic recreational spaces to enjoy the summer afternoons in peace. Belvedere Park is the largest park, spread over around 100 hectares. Complete with a zoo and art gallery, Belvedere Park is one of the most favourite places for those who seek to enjoy the serenity of the endless green space with families; lovingly dubbed ‘The Lungs of Tunis’. Cool off in the midday heat by choosing a nice shaded spot in the park that overlooks Lake Tunis. The Bardo National Museum is a must for fans of Roman mosaics since here you can come close to one of the greatest collections in the world.
