Tunisian houses are generally simple and unadorned, but Tunis has a reputation for the elaborate and colorful doors and window treatments with which the wealthy have traditionally expressed their status. Carved, studded, latticed, arched, intricately decorated, and painted in blue, beige and orange, they add a unique element to a ramble down the old town's maze of streets. Don't miss the souks, Arabic for markets, divided into sections by craft, so goldsmiths and weavers with handlooms have their own territories. Chaotic and fascinating, it is the best way to get a feel for old ways blending with the modern.
