Practicalities

Hotels and alternatives
There is one terrible hotel in town. While it is fairly cheap, you are strongly recommended to spend your night in the hotel in Siliana instead.

Restaurants and alternatives
Basic restaurants in town, normally limited to serving chicken with extras. The food is OK, the setting not ideal for romance, and the prices a bit above what they should be.

Nightlife
Nothing.

Change Money
A few banks in town centre, that will change foreign currencies and give cash if you bring your VISA or MasterCard.

Transport
There are OK connections with important destinations like Kairouan, Le Kef, Siliana and Sbe´tla. Choose between buses and more frequent shared taxis.
