Tunis Medina & Bardo Museum Guided Tour Itinerary
After being picked up from your hotel in Tunis at 8 am, you'll be taken directly to the Bardo National Museum, located in a neighbourhood of the same name in the outskirts of the city. The museum, which showcases thousands of years of Tunisia's history through different archaeological exhibitions, is considered one of the most important museums in the Mediterranean area and one of the best in Africa too.
On entering the museum, which is housed in a 15th-century royal palace, your guide will take you on a tour of the most significant and famous works of art on display here. One of the highlights of the Bardo Museum is the exhibition of Roman mosaics from all over Tunisia, considered to be one of the best-preserved and most beautiful collections of their kind in the world.
You'll feel you've travelled back in time as you explore the incredible collections of pieces showcased from Tunisian archaeological sites which date back to the eras of the Phoenicians, Carthaginians and the Romans.
Having made the most of your guided tour of the Bardo National Museum, you'll climb back on board the air-conditioned tour vehicle and head in the direction of Tunis Medina, located just a 15 minute drive away. Arriving at the old walled city, you'll see immediately that this is one of the best-conserved medinas in the world.
Follow your expert English-speaking guide around labyrinthine streets, admiring the traditional architecture of whitewashed buildings as you are immersed in the lively hustle and bustle of the souks and markets. After enjoying a stroll through the Medina, you'll reach the impressive Al-Zaytuna Mosque, whose name means the Mosque of the Olive, where you'll head inside to discover its beautiful decoration.
The final stop on your guided visit of the Medina of Tunis will be at the historic Souk El Attarine, which dates back to the 13th century, and is famous for its wide range of artisanal perfumes for sale. The perfect souvenir from your trip to Tunisia!
At the end of your four hour tour of Tunis' most iconic places of interest, you'll be dropped back off at your hotel.
