Sidi Bou Said is a walker’s dream along its cobbled streets lined with cube-like white houses and narrow alleyways.
Take time to relax at the many street cafes with a traditional glass of mint tea topped with pine nuts.
A trip wouldn’t be complete without checking the markets and shops in town. Haggle, haggle, and haggle some more! And there’s always that one shopkeeper who will offer 250 camels for your spouse/partner. Later I was rather disappointed when I met another traveler to find that they had been offered 500 camels! I did mention to the shopkeeper, at the time, that I didn’t think there were enough camels in all of Tunisia to trade for my beloved! He laughed at that and convinced me to buy a bowl instead. Deal.
