Service Description

The ancient quarter of Tunis, the Medina, founded in the 8th century A.D, is exceptionally well preserved. It’s considered the largest Medina in North Africa. The souks, built in the 13th century, covered with arches let in a dim light, teeming, bustling and overflowing with all sorts of merchandise: fabrics of a thousand colors, perfumes and precious jewels. The contrast with the peaceful neighboring alleys is striking. White walls and ironwork, vaulted passageways, domes with green tiles, yellow doors framed with delicate patterns in carved stone. The most important monuments in Medina are The Grand Mosque Ezzitouna dating back to the 8th century A.D., the Kasbah area, the mosque of Hamouda Pacha (Turkish style) and the madrassa Slimaniya. Our one hour live, personal, interactive, virtual walking tour will take us from the 12th century Madrassa Bir Lahjar, to the 17th century Ramdhane Dey square. We will marvel at the various architectural features of the Medina, constructions, ironworks, tileworks, marble coatings and beautiful blue and yellow doors. As we stroll, we will reach the Hamouda Pasha mosque with its octagonal minaret facing the rectangular. It is one of the main mosques in Tunis (Zitouna mosque). Then, we will reach the market place and the souks, most of them are covered, bustling, colorful shops and workshops, perfumes and frankincense, candles, dowry boxes, silk and linen outfits, shoes and baskets are all in a very geometric display. Knowing how to meander is important to fully appreciate the diversity of the medina which will offer us a memorable stroll.
