On an ancient train you can see terrific landscapes. Costs 17dt and last at least one hour and half. Maybe two

The Lezard Rouge (Red Lizard) is a fun two hour excursion that leaves from the Metlaoui train station. Ticket prices are 25 Dinar. Riding this antique train is a lot of fun...get there early because it is crazy popular with Tunisians (domestic tourists). We never found any seating but no matter...we stood the platforms between the carriages for photos of the ride through the gorge. The children would hoot and holler, cheer and chant as we rode through the many tunnels. Security was taken very seriously with a police and military escort both ways. All in all, a fun way to spend the morning!

This was the highlight of my husband's trip! Travelled in the Royal carriage on leather sofas. Free to wander about the train during trip to take photos. Stops on route in most spectacular areas for photos. Really worthwhile trip for all
