Visitor information about Kairouan, Tunisia
When we arrived at Kairouan, the city didnt quite look as the big important city of the islam in Tunisia. It seemed more than a area, focusing on tourism.
When we were looking for the famous mosque of Kairouan, a somehow dirty guy on a small motor bike wasgiving us signs to park at a certain place. We thought he would do this, because we were obviously looking for a parking space. We wanted to givehim an tip, but he said no no no, starting to lead us through the town. But he didn't guide us to the mosque, he showed us some traditional doors, meanwhile leading us to all the craftsmen of Kairouan, especially a carpetsweaver company. Just to give you an advice, refuse always to go by a local or talk about the price before, if you want to go with them.
It was really no real guided tour, and when we said we want to go back to the car, he said he wants to have now 25 Dinar for each person. That would mean he gets 25 Euro for a f....... merchant tour.
At that time we didnt want to stay in the city, because he got really angry. So we didnt see that mosque at all, but we got to know the arabic mentality!

Some nice days in Kairouan
Recommended Tunis Guide
Another major tourist attraction is the National Bardo Museum which houses one of the world's greatest collections of Roman mosaics. The museum contains an impressive collection of archaeological artifacts from different eras in Tunisia’s rich history. If you are looking for something a little bit more unique or bizarre, visit the Catacombs under the San Souis Church near Carthage. The cathedral boasts 240 well preserved funerary galleries that make for an interesting and historically enriching visit. Perhaps the greatest attraction the city can offer is not within the city walls itself.... Read more »
