This place has been listed as Huffington Post’s 2017 “most beautiful beach towns in the world” as well as their 2015 “insanely beautiful small towns from around the world” list, so it’s no wonder that Sidi Bou Said was at the top of my “must visit” places while in Tunisia.
Sidi Bou Said is a white and blue town with trees of hydrangeas blooming in bright colors. Here you will find cafés that overlooks the sea located just a few miles North outside the city of Tunis. Many little shops selling traditional objects at expensive prices for tourist as well as artists and painters can also be found in the town.
Sasha acting up during our visit…he absolutely did not want to go back in the stroller. So he decided to lay on the ground until we let him walk by himself. Yep, travelling with a toddler can be tricky at times but it is so worth it in the end! Opening their minds to new cultures as well as teaching them to adapt to new situations, food, people, languages can be such a wonderful experience for them.
We only spend a day visiting this area as we were meeting relatives for lunch at the reputable restaurant, Dar Zarrouk, located near the top of the town with it’s fine meals and it’s magnifient views of the Meditteranean Sea. Afterwards, we walked around, the streets are very narrow and it has very steep walkways so wearing comfortable shoes are a must! If I would go back, I would definitely leave the stroller in the car and use a baby carrier to visit this area.
As we were driving away, the sun was setting and I managed to get this amazing view of the sky. The colors were so beautiful, soft and pastel, nothing like I get to see at home.
Before heading to Sidi Bou Said that afternoon, we visited Tunis the capital, as well as other relatives in town. Here are a few pictures from different moments that same day.
