Monastir is a city in Tunisia.
Monastir is an ancient city dating from Phonecian times. It includes an impressive Ribat and the Mausoleum of Bourguiba, both of which have been closed for repair since the earthquake of 2013.
Regular flights go to Monastir airport from various European locations.
Only a small section of the original Medina remains but it contains a bazaar selling the usual souvenirs. Prices seemed to be generally lower than in nearby Sousse.
There are many good restaurants in the medina or more upmarket in the port de plaisance (marina), below the Ribat.
Most foreigners appear to stay at the resort area north of town, close to the airport.
