The climate of Tunis is typical of the Mediterranean: It's warm and dry during the summer and cold and wet during winter or rainy season. 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.
