By Rail

Train services in the main areas are good. The TMG runs frequently from Tunis to Carthage and La Marsa, stopping in all the suburbs. The only line inland goes to Metlaoui via Gafsa. Train timetables are available from any station and most tourist offices. Trains nearly always leave on time.

Regular trains (run by SNCFT) connect Tunis with major towns. The main route is between Tunis and Gabès, via Sousse, Sfax and Gafsa. It is essential to purchase a ticket before boarding the train or double the fare may be charged. Several daily trains run on each route, many with air-conditioned accommodation and a buffet. The superb views of the Sebja Gorge can be seen from the Lezard Rouge (Red Lizard), a restored old-fashioned train that runs daily between Metalouis and Redeyef. It is highly advisable to book in advance, if possible, especially for the more popular air-conditioned routes.
