You can choose a traditional round rustic bread.. Otherwise a French baguette is as good if not better for cutting and easier for eating
The olive oil is very important. The sandwich is 'bathed in olive oil' and that is how it gets its name.
I have photographed a can of tuna in brine but it is much better to use tuna in olive oil. If you don't like anchovies, just leave them out & if you don't have olive paste 'tapenade' just use olives
Cut the bread cross wise like above. To make a basket
Empty the inside as much as you wish.
Drizzle olive oil on the bread.. 1he base and the cover
Baste with the olive paste
Garlic. Optional. Just rub a Clive of garlic on the 2 sides of the bread basket

Anchovies if using
Annther layer of tuna
Finish with salad leaves
Cover with the top part of the bread basket
This is a variation using the classical French baguette.
