Tunisia Itinerary Help

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone! I posted this over at TripAdvisor, but it seems like the boards over here are a bit more active for Tunisia, so I'm going to put it here too. Kindest thanks for any help!

My wife and I are planning to visit Tunisia this spring, and we're trying to sort out a good itinerary. I'd love any feedback/help. We can't make heads or tails of what we should do, but we're very excited!
We're thinking this:
-2 days in Tunis, possibly staying at Dar El Medina. This would give us time to get a feel for the capitol.
-2 days in Carthage, possibly at Villa Didot, OR 2 days in Sidi Bou Said, maybe at Hotel Dar Said.
-2 days at a beach...and this part is the hardest, because I've been told to avoid "tourist zones" and I've been told to avoid areas that are not "tourist zones" (I'm so confused). We'd love to be able to leave the beach and see a town/medina and eat some seafood at a place where it isn't just tourists. We'd also like to stay in a really nice hotel, as this is a sort of anniversary trip for us.

Does it sound reasonable to do three 2-day jaunts like this? And what beach would be reachable from Tunis that is nice, sandy, and maybe not far from some sights?
Thanks for any and all help.
