tunisia

Situated on the balmy shores of the Southern Mediterranean and is where Europe, Africa and the Middle East meet.

Roman ruins, medieval medinas, French colonial boulevards, beautiful beaches, vast tracts of olive trees, and brilliant green oases set amongst the seemingly endless Saharan sands characterise the diversity present, in this, the most Westernised of North African nations.

Tunis the capital city is a good introduction to the country where the tangled streets of the UNESCO World Heritage medina are crammed with infectious chaos and sweet smelling spices. The Bardo Museum  houses the finest collection of Roman mosaics in the world, while nearby at Sidi Bou Said, is a picture perfect whitewashed village dramatically perched on a cliff top.

Tunisia's Roman ruins are amongst the finest in the Mediterranean. Without doubt the most well known ancient site in the country is Carthage, once capital of an empire. Here Dido wept for Aeneas, Hannibal set forth to conquer Rome and St Perpetua was tossed by the bulls.

Further afield, in the ancient province of Numidia, is the stunning UNESCO World Heritage Site of Dougga (ancient Thugga). To the south, the enormous amphitheatre at El Djem is more complete than the Colosseum in Rome, while in the desert are the stunning honey-coloured remains of Sbeitla.

Sandwiched between the Mediterranean and the Sahara desert lies the pride of the 'Tunisian Riviera', the sophisticated resorts of Hammamet and Sousse. Here are to be found sweeping sandy beaches along with historic medinas and top class hotels, some specialising in thalassotherpy spa treatments.

Southern Tunisia is a land noted for its dramatic desertscapes; wide expanses of glistening salt pans; astonishing Berber architecture; Eden-like oases; and the rippling dunes of the Sahara. It is also a road less well travelled with exciting opportunities for adventure.
