Tunisia, officially known as the Tunisian Republic, is part of Northern Africa and lies immediately south of Italy and Malta.
Carthage, the capital city of Tunisia and suburb of Tunis, was an ancient Mediterranean powerhouse and home to the Carthaginian Empire, an enemy of Rome’s. Between centuries of wars and conquests, many cultures have claimed Carthage as home.
Primarily known for its pristine, white sandy beaches, Tunisia offers travelers a variety of chances to explore its heritage, with many different archaeological remains scattered throughout the region. Take a walk throughout the ruins of the ancient Antonine Baths in Carthage, or admire the magnificent El Djem amphitheater, a well-preserved piece of the Roman influence. A few other “must-see” historical landmarks include the Tunis Medina, Dugga, and Kairouan.
The country also houses several museums and grand mosques. The Bardo Museum is one of the greatest highlights of Tunisia and has a beautiful collection of Roman mosaics. A blend of traditional and modern Tunisian architecture, the Habib Bourguiba Mausoleum is a spectacular display housing the first President and his family.
When you’re not catching up on your history, Tunisia provides many fun activities for visitors. Relax on the beach, take a stroll through the villages, or visit any of the markets for shopping. In the summer, traditional and international artists arrive in Tabarka, Carthage, Hammamet and Nabeul to participate in the many art festivals. There are also a variety of cinemas throughout the region that are popular among the locals.
Interested in food? Tunisian food combines Arabic, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and French influences. On the coast you’ll find fresh seafood, while in the Sahara region you’ll find Berber specialties, which are often rustic-style wholesome stews.
