Situated within the subtropical zone of the Mediterranean, the Tunisian climate is a mixture of that of the Mediterranean and of Africa. In the south, regions have just two seasons – a long, hot summer followed by a brief season of rain – whilst the rest of the country has a spring and autumn (although these seasons are considerably shorter than those experienced in Europe).

The weather in Tunis is pleasent at the summer school time of the year (September). Temperature may range between 20 °C and 35 °C.
