Tunisia is a country that surprises for the particularity of its landscapes but also for the presence of characteristic villages like that, very famous, of Sidi Bou Said.

Sidi Bou Said is about 20 km from the capital Tunis. Although popular with tourists is a well-kept and friendly country and is well worth a visit.

 

Dominant colors of the houses are white and blue that is used to paint the doors and windows: this custom was introduced by a law of 1920 that he wanted in this way to pay tribute to the French painter and musicologist Rodolphe d'Erlanger in Sidi Bou He said he had built his beautiful home.

It must be said that the blue color can be found in many centers on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea ... Spain, Greece, Italy ...

Sidi Bou Said has always been much loved by artists and intellectuals who liked to sip tea in the famous coffee mats. Even today, strolling through the alleys of this beautiful village full of light, flowers and colors and shopping among many local craft shops is a beautiful experience that I absolutely recommend.


Even if there are many tourists that crowd this small town it is always possible to walk pleasantly to discover characteristic views. Secret alleys, rigorously blue doors and windows, shops displaying the work of the colorful local handicraft, await us in this that, rightly, is considered a gem of Tunisia.

It is not difficult even to reach this characteristic village comfortably as it is included in all tourist circuits and excursions that are offered directly in hotels.
