Tunis, which is the national capital, is situated 240 miles (386 kilometers) north of Jarjis.
Visiting just one town or city, no matter how popular, usually only offers you a glimpse into the wider rhythms and life-ways of a region. So be sure to tour Tunisia's other sights and attractions. Aghir, 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the south, and Midoun, 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the south of Jarjis are also worth visiting should you have the time.
Go to Tunisia's history museums. These are excellent spots to explore, especially when the weather is unpleasant. Discover moments of serenity in Tunisia's mosques.
The wider region offers plenty of activities for active travelers with a love of water. Scuba diving and wind surfing are just two of the popular choices here.
Uncover the culture of Tunisia by learning about the food enjoyed here. Locals in this region commonly use tomatoes and seafood in their kitchen. Two local favorites worth tracking down are mesfouf (couscous) are tabil (spice mixture). For the end of you meal, you can also try asida (sweet gruel pudding). Don't agree that a meal is complete without a glass of wine? Taste Coteaux d’Utique or Coteaux de Carthage, two regional favourites. For something stronger, scan the menu for cedratine (lemon liqueur) and toast to the good times in Jarjis. Tea is great drink to have at any time of day.
When it's time to say farewell to Jarjis, head to the nearest major airport situated in Houmt Souk, 30 miles (48 kilometers) away.
