Place was last stop off on tour. Was a nice place to visit and take pictures. We also got a little spare time to walk around town and visit the local shops and buy souvenirs and stuff before we headed back to hotel.

This is a wonderful place to visit, the exhibition is very good and the inside is absolutely fantastic with a wonderful chandelier and the granite coffin. You can also ask to see the jewellery belonging to the family if you ask the guards they will usually let you in for a small fee.

A guide will introduce himself & start showing you around if you agree to this or not & of course then expects a nice tip. If you like tipping in general then Tunisia is for you. Tip Tip Horay !

Although lacking historical refinement it displays adulation, not in a very clumsy way. It is worth stopping in Monastir for and allows for understanding of the relation and elevation of the historical leader.
