The city is very, very old. Tunis was founded around 814 B.C by Dido the Phoenician princess that went on to found Carthage.
2. It’s Safe
Book into a hotel in Tunis and go out at your leisure. Tunisia has been blessedly immune to the struggles that the rest of the Arab world and their African neighbours have been facing.
In Tunis, you don’t walk, you doolesha – which is dialect for slow pace. There are so much culture and heritage to see that you need a slow pace to wrap your head around it all.
4. God Willing is the Way of Life
Insha’Allah which means as god wills is a way of life in Tunis. Whether you are ordering food or bidding goodbye, the 98% Muslim population will reply with “God willing.”
5. A Split Personality
The Tunisian Revolution was what sparked the Arab Spring in 2010, the people are both conservative and liberal. Tourists are very welcome and some of the luxury resorts The Residence Tunis by Cenizaro are there to cater to all.
