Best things to do in Tunis in summer

Guide on Best Things to do in Tunis in Summer

With glorious, uninterrupted sunshine and hot days spent splashing in the cooling waters of the Mediterranean, laid-back Tunis gets a huge jolt of energy in summer.  Tunisia is blessed with more than 1000km of beautiful coastline, a decent section of which is easily accessible from Tunis. Bathhouses have a long history in Tunisian society, and local rumour has it that going to a hammam and getting a gommage (body scrub) before sunbathing enables a deeper tan, so sun worshippers should seek one out for a good cleanse to remove tired winter skin. Watching a symphony orchestra live in the ruins of a Roman theatre under a blanket of stars is a skin-tingling experience. The annual Festival de Carthage runs throughout July and August with concerts in the restored open-air theatre of Carthage and the intricately decorated L’Acropolium. Tunis has one of the best restaurant scenes in the Maghreb with a selection of chic modern dining options. Head out for sundowners on bustling sea-fronted terraces at local hotspots The Cliff or Villa Didon and enjoy the pink and lilac glow of the evening sky as it fades into night.
