Sidi Bou Said is one of the most charming and amazing places I've ever been to. Reminds me of greece's Santorini, however it's got it's own unique character. Photographer's paradise. A must-see!!! here's a few photos in my livejournal: http://adamtasimages.livejournal.com/985.html

For all us Chelsea supporters this is the place to see and be pictured at. Blue and white everywhere with absolutely no red!! Epic location. Lots to buy and haggle for. Great leather goods around and pottery. Enjoy

The only place near Tunis that was worth coming out to see. A nice place to spend half a day. Carthage and some monuments are nearby.

This is very close to Carthage and is a must see for any travellers. Sidi means Sir in Arabic and it was named after a very pious muslim person. What is so charming about this is the walls of the houses are pure white with blue door/window frames. This little palace is beautiful, compact and gorgeous. The views from the... More

On the tour through Sidi Bou Said and Carthage we visited this Palace and it takes you back in time. It has a lot of atmosphere and charm. It shows you how people used to live. I thing not to miss out!

Lovely and lovely. Visit Tunisi without visiting this place is akin to visiting Paris without seeing the Eiffel Tower. White and blue colours..mediterranean sea. When I visited, there was not many people around and the pushy peddlers did not approach me as well. The first shop offers the cheapest fridge magnets (at 1 dinar per piece). Few cafes dotted here...

We visited during an afternoon tour from a cruise ship. Having read about this pretty village beforehand I was prepared to be 'wowed' and was not disappointed. You have to ignore the crowds of tourists and sellers of 'tat' - that is the price you pay for going to a popular place ! Find yourself a quiet corner in which... More

This is a nice place to spend an afternoon walking around as this tiny place is beautiful when walking up the hill as the colors of those houses reminds me of Greece as i have visited this place twice in the past 2 years and really enjoyed myself .
