A very nice town with a lot of tourist-centered activities. You could walk around this place in an afternoon and still want to do it again. Home to the iconic white and blue colored houses and shops. Dont forget to try the Bambolini!

It is really beautiful and stunning here. There are many souvenir shops before you go to the top.There are many things that nice to be wanted to shop also.But you need to bargain as every where. The most attractive stuff to me is models of lovely white and blue houses and café of Sidi Bou Said .The shopkeeper offered me the best price of 45TD for 5 houses. Lovely! The second thing is mosaic, it cost 10 TD. It depends on the art work and size. I bought traditional 100% weaving cotton Shawl, It is cost 10 TD. Love it! Along the way to the top, you will see many beautiful houses with white and blue doors. Some houses are surrounded by the flowers. There are many coffer shops and restaurants on the top. I have very fresh lemon mint juice and delicious sandwich ( shawama ) at one of the restaurant. It was cost about 8 TD. Some of cafes and restaurants are facing to the Mediterranean sea. What a beautiful screen!

With its two dominant beautiful blue and white... This beautiful town is twenty minutes drive from the capitol... Offers beautiful scenery... Good shops for some hot beverages... And a walk to remember... Unfortunately some locals are destroying the image of this beautiful place... By giving some hard time to the tourists... Such a shame for such a beautiful place

Lovely city very close to capital Tunis. There is a train from Tunis every one hour. Cheap and slow because on the way is lot of stops.

We drove here by our rented car by using waze and there's ample parking as we arrive around 10am in the morning . We love this place , it's relaxing and chilling to walk around here , shopping for souvenirs is so comfortable here at the street and so much more affordable than in Morocco, we have some pine nuts mint tea here , I bought my kaftan and tunisia tshirt from here . This is a must visit place when you're in Tunis ,Tunisia .

I loved Sidi Bou Said, and it's definitely competition for any Greek island. Anyone who complains about the lack of drinks or food spots hasn't really explored the area. We took a nice long walk around the town, all the way down to the cliff spot where everyone stops for selfies, and what an incredible view of the port with its docked boats, the sea and the mountains on the horizon. We stopped at La Villa Bleue for a look around, and had planned for a drink on their balcony, but it was in the shade and a bit breezy, so we headed instead for Dar Zarrouk, a restaurant-bar nearby with amazing sea views and an outdoor porch that would be perfect for summer parties. We spent a few hours at the bar, nibbling on olives and drinking fantastic white wine. Afterwards, we went for another walk and stopped at Rock the Kasbah, a fantastic boutique store with pretty expensive furniture pieces, we walked past a Tunisian doughnut stand and La Difference, a restaurant-cafe with a nice mezzanine balcony where you could stop for a coffee and admire the view of the market below. Honestly, this was a laidback, fun way to spend a sunny afternoon and we enjoyed the fact that we were surrounded by Tunisian tourists as well as foreigners, it gave the whole place a more authentic feel. Definitely recommend it.

We were driven from our cruise ship to this most beautiful blue and white village and wandered along it's winding pathways to gaze on the blue Mediterranean Sea.Past the home of the artist Paul Klee who lived and painted there for many years.
Do try and find time to dine there on typical Tunisian food such as their delicious fried pastry Bombolini which is similar to a doughnut.
Our memories of beautiful Sidi Bou Said are refreshed by a most beautiful watercolour we purchased on our too short visit

i am a native of sidi bou said and i still live in it i suggest to visitors disgarding its museum,restaurants and places of interest to be equipped with their cameras and walking through its alleys narrow streets blind alleys enjoying the view of typical and traditonal white and blue houses with their nice decorations every corner is worth visiting and get photographed and as the village is in altitude landscapes all around and overviews mostly the sea ,the harbour and the gulf of tunis wether by night sun set or day light are very beautiful .visitors who have enough time can get a jump to the famous and historical city of carthage which is two kilometers away from sidi bou said.

This is definitely a must-see location in Tunisia. It is a small seaside town reminiscent of Greece and the Mediterranean. All the windows and doors in the town are blue and the houses are white. Walking through the town is one of the most beautiful things to experience and a romantic sunset dinner with fantastic sea views is a must-see here.
