Attractions near Golden Tulip El Mechtel
Discover the lungs of Tunis
Take some time out from the hustle and bustle of modern day Tunis and head to the northern part of the capital for a relaxing afternoon in Belvedere Park. Created in the late 19th century, the park is a lush oasis in the big city. It’s loved by the locals for its beautiful lake, towering trees, expansive lawns and winding walkways, which will soothe even the most harried traveller.
A visit is especially lovely following a busy afternoon in the souk. Wander around and take in the stunning views from the pavilion or take shelter from the midday sun in a shady spot whilst you plan your next step in Tunis.
A day in Sidi Bou Said
For an experience you’ll never forget, take the train some 20 kilometres from Tunis to the famous town of Sidi Bou Said. On arrival you’ll find charming shops selling local Tunisian pottery and gifts. Browse your way through and then begin your climb of the hill, taking in the traditional blue and white houses this town is famous for. When you reach the summit you’ll be rewarded with glistening views of the Mediterranean Sea sprawled out below you.
In peak season this area is packed with tourists, artists and trendy young Tunisians enjoying the atmosphere. It may be touristy, but the view is worth it.
