What to see in Tunisia

Tunisia Attractions


A popular holiday resort destination for tourists, Tunisia has more to see and do than just beautiful beaches scattered along its Mediterranean coastline, and luxurious resorts like Hammamet and Nabeul; there are countless attractions to meet just about every sightseer's needs.

Start off in the capital of Tunis, a fast-paced modern metropolis of a city juxtaposed by a medieval Medina. Spend a few hours here taking in the history and hunting for bargains and souvenirs in the countless tiny streets lined with vendors touting antiques, pottery, jewellery and other delights. Head to the Bardo Museum to marvel at some of the world's greatest Roman mosaics, while just a few miles north of Tunis lie the remains of the legendary ancient city of Carthage, which dates back to the 8th century BC.

Heading south towards the Sahara affords visitors plenty of fascinating geographical features like the 'forest in the desert' at Ramada, as well as the dry salt lake at Chott el Jerid and the remote 'end of the road' oasis at Ksar Ghilane.
