Destination Information for Tunisia

Tunisia, in Northern Africa, is a traditionally popular destination for sun-seekers flocking to its impressive beaches as Tunisia’s coastline runs along the Mediterranean Sea. There are many modern and luxurious resorts, and whether you want to spend the entire holiday on a sun lounger or get out and about and explore your destination, Tunisia has much to offer. Most visitors stay within the North, which includes the capital, Tunis, and you are advised to avoid the areas bordering Algeria and Libya for safety reasons.

Away from the beaches, there is plenty of culture and heritage in Tunisia to discover. Close to the capital, the famous city of Cartage is a must-see. This great ancient city has inspired music, poetry and stories, and is known to have been the capital of the Roman province of Africa. There are some incredible archaeological remains to see, and it is built on a site of great natural beauty.
