You could get around on foot. Very big old city to see. The traditional life to Tunisians that you could look and enjoy. Fusion of Islamique and roman culture.

The only good thing about the ribat is the view from the top of the tower. The ribat itself has nothing much to see. 7 dinar for the view? Meh.

A very peaceful (when no tour groups about) place to visit with absolutely stunning views across the city and ocean. Difficult steps to climb, particularly in the tower but well worth it. A great place to chill out and take it all in.

I enjoyed the visit unfortunately it was closed off due to earthquake damage in March 2014. But it was still amazing to see especially if your a monty Python fan ( it's where some of the filming took place)
