Things to do in Tunisia
Sidi Bou Said was a stunner of an excursion. They call it the Santorini of Africa due to all the blue and white buildings that make up the town. So many cute and unique handicrafts, beautiful lunch spots and a view of the ocean that seriously made me wonder where Tunisia has been hiding this crystal clear water!
We’re suckers for local handicrafts, whether it’s a small figurine or a piece of handmade furniture, and boy did Tunisia deliver. The hotel was filled with chairs, couches and cabinetry that had us drooling while simultaneously wanting to redesign our entire house to be Tunisian. And unlucky for our wallet, you can even head to the gorgeous store that the hotel sourced its furniture from, which is in Sidi Bou Said called Rock the Kasbah.
Our visit to the ancient city of Carthage was fun, but truthfully we didn’t last all that long given the searing sun and the pale children. It was a site worth seeing, but maybe one done outside of the Africa hot hours.
