#1 of 7 in Things to do in Sidi Bou Said
Stroll through the narrow alleys of Centro storico, packed with white and blue houses overgrown with bougainvillea that evokes the ambiance of a Greek island. In the 18th century, this sacred Sufi site became a retreat for Turkish governors and rich Tunisians who built residences with impressive sea views. The town owes its current appearance to an early 20th-century French baron, who forbade any construction not consistent with the traditional Arab-Andalus style.

  • Be in Tunisia and do not see this place..... Very, very climatic, blue color and beautiful flowers everywhere. A perfect place to sit and drink a tea with pine nuts

  • 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.  more »
