You mean end of May?
I have not been there.
But talking about photography equipment. It's all up to you. :)
You like landscape? Street? Night photo? Portrait?
Light weight? How much you can carry? How much you willing to carry?

I wouldn't bring too much. It'll be starting to get hot by May. Choose either the 14mm or 17mm for street and landscape. 12-50 zoom should be more than adequate. Lighting will be very harsh. Bring CPLs and lens hoods.

Hopefully the revolution hasn't increased street crime, but the touting is truly annoying, at least in the touristy parts of Tunis. Outside of the touristy areas people are much nicer. Sidi Bou Said is gorgeous.

Thanks for the replies. Unfortunately I had to cancel my trip to Tunisia due to skew ups with the visa. What a bummer.
