When making your list of stuff to do in Tunis, you should know that the city has plenty to see, but most of the attractions in Tunis are in the medina. The city is divided into two main parts: the medina and the new city. These two very different areas contrast with each other while forming a whole which is the essence of the city, so you can experience both the ancient Arab city and the more recent colonial past.
The skyscrapers and more modern Tunis attractions are all in the new town. A trip down Bourguiba Avenue is one of the most popular Tunis activities. Also known as the Tunisian Champs Elysees, it is full of shops and restaurants. And in front of this you'll find the buildings of the medina.
The medina is the old city, a labyrinth of narrow streets packed with things to see in Tunis. A trip here will take you to the cities of the Thousand and One Nights. Of all the places to visit in Tunis, the Great Zitouna Mosque is one of the oldest. The Bey Palace, Dar Ben Abdallah (an ancient palace that houses the Museum of Arts and Traditions of Tunisia), the palace of Dar Hussein and the Royal Mausoleum Tourbet El Bey should also be on your list of what to do in Tunis without leaving the medina.
