Sidi Bou Said is one of the most charming and amazing places I've ever been to. Reminds me of greece's Santorini, however it's got it's own unique character. Photographer's paradise. A must-see!!!

here's a few photos in my livejournal:

For all us Chelsea supporters this is the place to see and be pictured at. Blue and white everywhere with absolutely no red!! Epic location. Lots to buy and haggle for. Great leather goods around and pottery. Enjoy

The only place near Tunis that was worth coming out to see. A nice place to spend half a day. Carthage and some monuments are nearby.

This is very close to Carthage and is a must see for any travellers. Sidi means Sir in Arabic and it was named after a very pious muslim person. What is so charming about this is the walls of the houses are pure white with blue door/window frames. This little palace is beautiful, compact and gorgeous. The views from the rooftop is breathtaking seeing the Med Sea and this double-hump mountain on the far right. The mosque is right next to it and I had the pleasure of going around there as well. The walk from the car park to this place is quite intimidating as you have to go through a small medina alleyway with vendors trying to sell you stuff before you turn right at the end of the alleyway - this walk to the right is a steep hill and near the top of the hill on the left hand side is where this little palace/house is located just before the mosque. You pay 3 TD to get in and includes some refreshing mint tea. In my opinion, the best place around the Tunis region
