Girl studying in Tunis for 3/5 months
I'm an Italian 22 year old girl studying Arabic. I am going to stay in Tunis for 3/5 months to attend a school and improve my Arabic skills. I have never been to an Arab country before and I am really excited about it, but I really need a piece of advice since I am coming to Tunis alone and I am a girl... Will it be safe to visit the city by myself, properly dressed of course (showing no legs nor shoulders)? Any advice about Tunis, where to go, what to do, what to do not, best area of the city to live in? I am going to stay for one month in a rented apartment in Cité les Jardins, does some body know about this area of Tunis?
Also, I was thinking about getting a Tunisian number, can somebody advise me a mobile operator company?
Thank you very much!
