Aghir is situated 220 miles (354 kilometers) south of Tunis, the country's capital.
It's recommended not to limit yourself to the points of interest in Aghir because the entire region has been endowed with plenty of wonderful cultural and natural attractions. If you've enough time, head 12 miles (19 kilometers) to get to Houmt Souq. Here you can spend an hour or two visiting the Borj El K'bir Fort and Houmt Souq Harbour.
Visit Tunisia's history museums. These are good places to spend time, particularly when the weather is a little moody. Tourists in Tunisia should spend time exploring the area's open-air markets.
This destination also boasts some once in a lifetime adventures such as hot air ballooning.
Uncover the essence of Tunisia by learning about local food. Tomatoes and seafood are some of the key ingredients. Why not order mesfouf (couscous) or tabil (spice mixture)? Both meals are a favorite choice in this region. Request asida (sweet gruel pudding) at the finish of your feast. This is a common choice for residents. Why not enjoy a local vino to accompany your meal? Coteaux d’Utique and Coteaux de Carthage are some popular options. To finish your dinner as many locals would, ask for a little cedratine (lemon liqueur) and sit back after a full day of sightseeing. Have a taste of one of the more popular drinks such as tea.
The closest major airport, Djerba - Zaris Airport, is located in Houmt Souk, 16 miles (26 kilometers) to the northwest of Aghir, a handy point to remember when planning your trip.
