It will appeal to families looking for a relaxing place to refuel with energy and tranquillity. Historians will like it for its rich past. The heart of the city, made up of narrow alleys, a few walls and small squares, is a place for walking and relaxation. Here we meet many Tunisians who have lived in France.
