For several years now the Tunisian capital has been growing in popularity amongst Europeans. The reasons for their infatuation are many fold: the legendary hospitality of the inhabitants, the total change of scenery that the charming town offers thanks to its historical vestiges and the fact that it was used by Westerners as a passage to the Orient.
But Tunis is also known for its quality hotels which have been able to adapt to the needs of an ever-demanding clientele. To be completely autonomous on your holiday and to wander where the heart desires, hire a car and take advantage of the car rental services in Tunis.
The rapid growth of the Tunis' population and the way the town has developed as a result are both responsible for the big changes in its circulation system. Thus during rush hour it is not rare to see traffic jams forming at certain large crossroads. However it is not worth getting angry as driving in Tunis is actually a real pleasure: drivers are very courteous and the stop-start movement gives you the chance to take in the charm and authenticity of the town.
Only two and a half hours from the UK, Tunis is the ideal destination for those looking to be blown away by the charm and authenticity of a town rich in patrimony and culture, but which is equally at home in the modern world. Its numerous archaeological sites, sand dunes as far as the eye can see and year-round sun make Tunis the perfect destination for families and for lovers. Not to be missed, by car or on foot, are the Bardo museum, the village of Sidi Bou Said and the Punic city of Carthage.
