Tunis is a tranquil yet bustling capital with a population of around 700 000 inhabitants and numerous sights to attract visitors. The medina and its souks (dominated by the presence of the Great Mosque), the nearby central market, and the extensive Avenue Habib Bourguiba, which crosses the modern city from the historic quarter to the port, form the lively heart of a city displaying myriad architectural influences. Its history can be admired in its buildings, as well as in the Bardo Museum, with its exceptionally rich collection of Roman mosaics, as well as artefacts highlighting other civilisations which have occupied the country.
