Even though Sidi Bou Saïd probably isn’t an insider tip anymore, the small town on Tunisia’s Mediterranean coast is still absolutely worth seeing. That’s because the whole village is kept in two colours. Whether church, shutters, awning, park bench or rubbish bin: Simply everything is white and/or blue here.
With its golden beaches and sapphire blue sea, its medieval monuments and its charming marina, Monastir offers one of the most attractive faces of Tunisia.
Thanks to Tunisia’s position, at the meeting point of Africa and Europe, the country is steeped in history and has no less than eight UNESCO world heritage sites. Much like Jordan in the Middle East, a number of these ruins are better preserved than their equivalents in Europe.
