Tunisia's flag Flag of Tunisia
Tunisia is one of the most fascinating countries of Arab Africa.
Tunisia is a place at which many of the most advanced cultures of the world met over the time. Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Turks, French held this small but interesting place over the centuries and left their mark at the land and the people that now live here. All this cultural heritage makes Tunisia an interesting spot to visit, and when it is combined with wonderful beaches and resorts, interesting landmarks and unique natural scenery, we get a wonderful place for short or longer visit.
Some of the most interesting places in Tunisia are the mixed Arab and colonial capital Tunis, the close-by historic Carthage, the wonderful beach resort of Hammamet and the picturesque Roman coliseum of El jem. If we proceed further in the country, we may explore vastly changing scenery, combining fertile beach areas and oases with wastelands, desert mountains and picturesque canyons, something for everyone.
