The historical Tunisian train goes through the picturesque desert from the city of Metlaoui and back. This unique train dates back to 1911 when it was the property of the Bey of Tunis. Now its passengers are mostly tourists. The journey takes you through the beautiful Selja Gorges and lasts 1 hour 45 minutes. If you travel by bicycle, you can also join the ride—there will be enough space for your vehicle.
