Airport Car Rental

Get your rental car at Tunis Airport! Then drive to the city center, park your rental outside the old Medina and check out the markets and shops, also known as souks. The most interesting ones are further away from the main streets! Tunis Medina is a great place to get a feel for the city’s way of life and customs. Make sure you go to Ville Nouvelle, too, the modern face of Tunis—its main avenue is lined with eucalyptus and palm trees and its architecture is a mix of colonial and post-colonial styles.

Drive to Dar Ben Abdallah to see exhibits about the daily life of 19th and 20th century Tunisian nobles, then head to the Bardo Museum to learn about the city’s Phoenician, Roman, Ottoman, and French past. After taking in all the culture, visit one of the local restaurants! Try the fish soups, spicy olive paste, and shakshouka. Sicily is very close, so pizza’s a good choice too.

Tunis is fascinating, but Tunisia has even more to offer. Why not see more with a longer term car rental? You can drive to beautiful beaches up and down the coast, learn about Ancient Carthage at sites near Lake Tunis, or take a road trip all the way to the Sahara Desert. You can even pick up your rental car at Tunis Airport and drop it off in a different city. Start planning your adventure now!

Tunis Airport is also called Carthage Airport and Aéroport de Tunis Carthage.
