Highlighted Things to Do in Tunis
Matthew Keezer suggests that you check out these things to do, while you're in Tunisia:

Those who wish to shop should head on over to Souk des Chéchias. There, you'll find the makers of the traditional woolen hats that have existed for centuries. Souvenir stalls can be found in the locations between Rue Djemma ez Zitouna and Rue Kasbah.
Carthage Ruins – Explore the ancient ruins of Carthage, which was once a wealthy port city of the Phoenicians. The city, itself, was destroyed in the 3rd Punic War of 146 B.C. and offers an incredible atmosphere that makes you feel "lost in the past".
The National Bardo Museum – Besides their incredible mosaic collection (one of three renowned collections with the other two residing in Turkey), it also features the Dougga Room, Sousse Room and Odysseus Room.
