About Tunis

The capital, Tunis, reflects the country's rich diversity. Its French colonial past is still evident across the city and the country, as it only gained independence in 1956. The most notable evidence is the cuisine, with its blend of sophisticated French styles and Arab spices.

The city of Tunis also contains the remains of what was Roman Carthage, while the Roman ruins at Dougga and El Jem are some of the finest in Africa.

Tunis is home to 1 in 10 of the country's population, combining a modern, European-style city of tree-lined promenades with a vibrant, atmospheric medina listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Other Tunis attractions include the Zitouna Mosque (Great Mosque), the largest in Tunisia, or the National Bardo Museum, which houses one of the world's greatest collections of Roman mosaics. Another popular attraction is the National Museum of Carthage.

Tunis port facilities

The main Tunis ferry port is located at the commercial port in La Goulette, a fishing port eight miles north of Tunis. The main ferry port is only half a mile from downtown La Goulette; though the port once catered only to freight ships, a terminal building with an indoor souk now welcomes ferry passengers.

The town of La Goulette itself features some of Tunis' best seafood restaurants. However there is not much else to do, so if you are waiting for a ferry, you may want to visit Tunis, or the nearby attractions of Carthage and Sidi Bou Said.

Getting to Tunis

The ferry port is 8 miles north of Tunis. Travelling by car from Tunis, you can use the P1 road and follow signs to the port.

La Goulette is the second stop after Tunis for the local (TGM) train that goes along the coast up to La Marsa. Therefore it takes very little time to cover the 10 km between the two stations.

Taxis are available at the main port entrance. A taxi to Tunis will cost approximately £5. You can also jump on one of the electric trains from La Goulette to downtown Tunis. You can also reach the main beach resorts of Hammamet and Sousse by taxi or train.
