Planning for Tunisia - comments please

Jump to last reply

In just eleven days I leave on a six month RTW. It's mostly Asia, but I'll be spending eleven fulls days in Tunisia near the end. Comments on my tentative itinerary are welcome, along with hotel and restaurant recommendations - note that I've left the far south out deliberately - a couple of things looked interesting, but I don't want desert and camels on this trip.

Background info: I'm early 60s, solo female. I'm not really into big cities, neon, nightlife or shopping - although I love markets. I also love mountains, waterfalls and rocky coastline, and I'm interested in architecture, religion and especially food. I prefer crafts - glass, textiles, ceramics, jewelry - to fine arts. I travel more on the budget end and use public transport.

Mar 01 Arrive Tunis (Tuesday)
Mar 02 Tunis - Bardo
Mar 03 Tunis - Carthage, coast
Mar 04 Tunis - Bullia Regia day trip?
Mar 05 Sousse
Mar 06 Sousse - day trip to Kairouan
Mar 07 Sfax
Mar 08 Sfax
Mar 09 Mahdia
Mar 10 Mahdia - day trip to El Jem
Mar 11 Mahdia - Friday market
Mar 12 Tunis
Mar 13 fly to Nice (Sunday)
