Averages for Tunis in January
Tunis enjoys a Mediterranean climate all year round and so if you are looking to escape the cold, wind and rain of northern Europe in January, then this is the place to come.

There is also a chance of experiencing some wet weather at this time of year, although this tends to come in the form of showers that do not last very long.
The mild temperatures mean many people come to Tunis in the winter months for outdoor activities such as golf.
There is a wealth of golf courses and clubs in the area, with lessons and starter courses available for first timers.
You can also head out on a desert safari into the Sahara. Here you can take a guided tour of secluded villages and learn more about Tunisian culture.
To find out about the history of Tunis you must visit the ancient city of Carthage.
Dating back nearly 3000 years, this city was destroyed and rebuilt several times and spans both the Greek and Roman empires. There are many extensive and well preserved ruins to be seen at this UNESCO world heritage site.
Another heritage site is the Medina. This ancient part of the city includes the Great Mosque, Bey’s Palace and the famous Kasbah market. You can easily spend a couple of days exploring the rich history of this part of Tunis.
For a central hotel that offers low room rates to suit any budget, the Hotel Ariha is a popular choice. The hotel is right next to Belvedere Park and minutes away from both the city centre and the airport.
