Not a quiet town
Like any other tourist destination in Tunisia, Monastir hustles with a market and business negotiations. That is, this is not a quiet town, especially because it is the preferred destination for Europeans who want to bask in the sun on the beaches while staying in a cheap hotel. We went during Easter, and although the beaches were not at their best, we could walk along them pretty quietly. You will see posters and interesting expressions, though it is less wild than other small towns in the area, like Sousse.
