Monastir

3.8
Known for its imposing 8th-century fortress, the coastal city of Monastir offers visitors pristine beaches, a scenic waterfront, and a number of historic buildings to admire. A tourism hub, the city boasts a rich heritage, evident in its ancient mosques and mausoleums, juxtaposed with its luxurious resorts and yacht-filled marina. The town serves as the gateway for visiting the World Heritage-listed El Djem amphitheater, but if you're looking for things to do in Monastir itself, consider roaming the streets of the historic district, shopping for traditional souvenirs, and strolling the picturesque seaside promenade. Monastir is in Monastir Governorate. Customize your holiday with our Tunisia route builder app to create an adventure that suits you.
