Monastir

Well worth exploring

Originally built as a trading post by the Phoenicians and taken over by the Romans under the name of Ruspina, the Tunisian seaport of Monastir has history (and Mediterranean views) on all fronts. Although most visitors tend to stay in the resort of Skanes about 6 miles away, Monastir itself is well worth exploring.
