Village located at 15 minutes from Tunis, Sidi Bou Saïd is well-known for its white houses with intense blue coloured doors and its moucharabiehs.
To enjoy the charm of this place, you have to let yourself be carried along by its cobbled alleys which offer an amazing perspective on the sea. Your route will be littered with brilliant touches of magnificent bougainvillea. Like most tourist spots in Tunisia, you will find in the main street good numbers of souvenir shops.
Plan a stop at the Café des Nattes where Albert Camus, Paul Klee and Simone de Beauvoir had their habits. Leaving the cafe on the left, do not miss the very small shop selling the famous Tunisian donuts called Bambalouni. Continue on your way to Café des Délices (Café Sidi Chebaane) where you can enjoy an excellent lemonade while admiring the view overlooking the sea and in the distance the djebel Bou Kornine.
