Villa Didon offers guests a fantastic mix of the exotic and the familiar. The ancient city of Sidi Bou Said draws the eye to its mysterious blue and white architecture, while Villa Didon's provocative twisting-cube design is right out of the streets of Paris. This boutique hotel may utilize cutting-edge design, but it's Tunisian at heart, with arched doorways, generous in-suite hammams, and elevated marble bathtubs in the regional style. Evening in Villa Didon turns up the heat with a live DJ working the bar crowd well into the wee hours of the morning. The Villa Didon cellar also has an extensive collection of Tunisian and European wine, a rare find in this area.
This location is a history buff's dream. Just a stone's throw from the hotel lies the Carthage National Museum, where guests can see artifacts from the clash and cohabitation of ancient North African, Greek, Trojan, and Roman cultures. Naturally, this cultural hotspot also yields up some of the finest shopping around.
