  • If you spend in Tunis not to miss Very beautiful mosque in the heart of medina, do not forget its veil to enter (for women). Besides, the schedules are not what they should be. We were only able to get in at 2pm!

  • In the middle of the Medina... Entry only for Muslims theoretically but with a scarf that provide them in an Anglo language French they let in without problems. separate entrance for men and women only at the entrance of the prayer hall where we also entered and only after a gentleman asked us if we were Muslims and made us sign that in theory we could not stay but left without checking how long after his invitation We would have gone out... In short, ultimately if you are silent you can visit it all without problems
