Weather in Tunis

Summer temperatures, especially from April to August, can reach 40 degrees Celsius, but the cool breeze coming from the sea can ease the heat. November through March is the best time to visit the city, as the heat dissipates during these months. A holiday weather planner can be useful before you check into the city.
