Tunisia

Although Tunisia is famous for its package deal holidays, big beaches and big hotels, off the beaten track a whole new world reveals itself. A country of contrasts, from the historic Roman Amphitheater of El Djem to the space age desert terrains of Matmata, Tunisia is a melting pot of cultures, people and landscapes. It is also a mixture of all cultures and religions; Judaism, Islam and Christianity of the Arab Berbers, Jews and Europeans.

Half the size of Italy with a mountainous north and flat south, Tunisia lies on the north coast of Africa dwarfed by neighbouring Libya and Algeria. It’s known for wonderful French food and wine, and the oasis that is the Sahara, the largest hot desert on earth. Much of the country is a fertile landscape of olive groves, sheep pastures and glorious beaches, but towards the south are sand dunes as far as the eye can see.
