Your Key To The Beauty and the Magic of Tunisia

Welcome to Tunisia, my country in North Africa!

Just a brief two hours flight from Europe, you can embark on your journey with a visit to the historical city of Carthage.  Built in 814 BC by Elyssa Dido, Cathage was once a tremendous military and trading empire that covered much of the Mediterranean.  However, Carthage was destroyed by the Romans in 146 BC after the extended Punic wars.  On your visit to Carthage, you will see much of the remains from several cultures that had succeeded one another as well as the vestiges of wars: Punic, Roman Vandal and Arab.

A short distance from Carthage, you will find the very special white and blue village of Sidi Bou Said.  Located approximately 18 km from Tunis, the capital of Tunisia, Sidi Bou Said sits on the top of a hill overlooking the turquoise sea – reminiscent of Santorini in Greece.

When you arrive in Tunis, you must visit the internationally renowned Bardo Museum, which has garnered the reputation of having the richest, most varied and most refined collection of mosaics in the world.

Proceeding southward, you will discover the town of Hammamet with its lovely beaches and resort hotels as well as the historical city of Sousse which is approximately 100 km further southeast.

Should you get the opportunity to visit Djerba in southern Tunisia, you will find a magical Island forming a piece of the Mediterranean heaven.  Along side its natural beauty, Djerba houses several cultural museums.  One of the highlights is the Lella Hadria Museum which showcases a wonderful collection of traditional artifacts and craftsmanship.  You must also visit the oldest Synagogue in Africa, the El Ghriba, which is an amazing example of Moorish architecture with its richly decorated interior.
