Weather Averages for Tunis in July
Averages for Tunis in July
July is swelteringly hot in Tunis, with plenty of sunshine for those eager to make the most of the summer sun in North Africa.
However this would not be a good time of year to visit if you dislike large crowds or excessive heat.
There are 11 hours of sunshine every day so you will definitely be spending plenty of time on the miles of golden beaches in Tunis.
The Mediterranean sea is also pleasantly warm at this time of year so you can refresh yourself with a dip. Water sports are also popular, with jet skiing, waterskiing and scuba diving available.
Within Tunis itself you can visit the ancient city of Carthage. This city dates from roughly 3000 years ago and existed under Greek, Roman and Islamic rule. Among the remarkably well preserved ruins you can see numerous houses, a forum and several temples.
The ancient 7500 seat amphitheatre in Carthage is not only quite a sight to behold but during July hosts the Carthage International Festival. Culture vultures should head here to enjoy a range of music, dance recitals, theatre performances and film screenings.
If you’re looking for accommodation, the Carlton Hotel is a great base for exploring the city and, with room prices starting at less than £40, it is suitable for anyone on a budget.
