Cruise ships docked at La Goulette often include a tour of Tunis as a shore excursion option. These tours include a walk around the Medina and one of the enclosed souks (shopping areas). The city tours also will travel to the Bardo National Museum, which has the world's largest collection of Roman mosaics. Tourists might also choose to visit Sidi Bou Said, a small town near La Goulette and the remains of Carthage.While in the Medina, we visited a Berber carpet shop in the souk, where we learned more about the beautiful rugs made in Tunisia. We also climbed the stairs to the roof of the shop, where the views of the Medina and Tunis were beautiful.
