The Ribat

This is probably the main attraction in Monastir and the right place to get a glimpse of ancient Tunisia. The fortress has been used several times as natural décor for international movies. The oldest part is situated around the lookout tower and houses the Museum which features a great collection of ancient Islamic writings, fabrics, pottery, astrolabes and carved roof timber.

Taxi

Yellow taxis are the best way to explore Monastir although all the main points of interest can be done by foot. You will find them anywhere and it is an efficient and fast way of transport. If you need to make a booking for your way back to the airport, it is better to ask your hotel. The “taxis collectifs” with a blue tag are the best option to explore the region, e.g. a day trip to Sousse. There is no specific schedule; you must go to the Gare Routière to find one. They leave only once they’re full.
