At a Glance

Dubbed the ‘Paris of North Africa,’ Tunis is the capital and largest city in Tunisia. The city is situated on a large Mediterranean Sea gulf, behind the port of La Goulette.

Tunis is the commercial and economic hub in the northern part of the country, and the administrative center of Tunisia.

Tunis is largely divided into three parts, the old city called Medina (*meaning “city” in Arabic, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site); the French Quarter, which now is the center; and the newer and larger regions built in the south and north of the city.
