European Tunisians are Tunisians whose ancestry lies within the continent of Europe and its ethnic groups, most notably French people, Italian Tunisians (mostly Sicilians and Sardinians), Maltese people and Turco-Tunisians.

Prior to independence, there were 255,000 Europeans in Tunisia in 1956.[2] In 1926, there were 90,000 Italians in Tunisia, compared to 70,000 Frenchmen, despite the fact that Tunisia was a French protectorate, as well as 8,396 Maltese.[3]

Europeans are a small minority group in contemporary Tunisia, accounting for only 1% of the country's population.[1]
