Getting Around in Tunisia

By Air

TunisAir Express is the domestic airline branched off of Tunisair. You can fly between Tunis and Tozeur, Djerba and Gabes, as well as flights to Malta and Bizerte.

By Water

Ferries operate between Sfax and the Kerkennah Islands, and between El Jorf and Jerba Island.

By Rail

Regular trains are run by SNCFT and connect Tunis with major towns. The main route is north-south between Tunis and Gabès, via Sousse and Sfax, one train per day branches at Mahres, south of Sfax, to Gafsa and Metaloui. There are also branch lines to Bizerte, Nabeul (in the Cap Bon), and the Metro de Sahel links Sousse to Monastir and Mahdia. There are three classes (first, second and confort). It is a good idea to book in advance for popular routes, especially in summer. Superb views of the Selja Gorge can be seen from the Lezard Rouge (Red Lizard), a restored train dating from 1910, which runs daily between Metlaoui and Redeyef.

By Road

Tunisia has an extensive road network; all but the smallest roads are tar-sealed. Traffic drives on the right. Speed limits are 50 kph (30 mph) in built-up areas, 90 kpm (55 mph) on the open road and 110 kph (70 mph) on the A1 toll road between Tunis and Msaken, south of Sousse. Seatbelts are compulsory in the front seats. The legal driving age is 18.


Long distance bus (called car) is also a safe and economic way to travel between major cities such as Tunis, Nabeul, Hammamet, etc. You will generally find a station in each major city offering many departures per day (every 30 minutes between Tunis and Hammamet). Some of the bus locally called "car comfort" offer higher standards (tv, air conditioner) at cheap prices.
