If I were to blindfold you and bring you to this place, you would easily think you were in Santorini. With its white buildings and blue windows, Sidi Bou Said is easily my favourite destination in Tunis. In my defense, how do you not fall in love with a quaint coastal town overlooking the Mediterranean, with several cafes dotting the sea-side. I spent hours wandering the cobblestone streets, admiring the unique architecture as well as crafts from around the country. Once you are done strolling around the market, you could also visit the mosque or just grab a Tunisian ‘chai’ and soak in the setting sun.
It a small town just 20km from Tunis. It’s known for being painted white and blue, and we had the privilege of visiting a mansion that historically belonged to Baron D’Erlanger, a German baron who came to Tunisia and built a house here because he fell in love with the country. We weren't allowed to take pictures inside.
