Tunisia- travel tips and guides

Tunisia is a country in Northern Africa with Mediterranean Sea coastline that contributed to its popularity, especially amongst the Europeans, as one of the best holiday destinations in Africa.

With its capital city in Tunis, Tunisia lies immediately to the south of Italy and Malta. Libya borders Tunisia to the south-east, whilst Algeria lies to the west.

The country has a rich cultural history, ever since Antiquity. The Carthaginian Empire, Rome’s arch enemy, was centred in Tunisia. Its capital, Carthage, is now a suburb of Tunis. Founded by Phoenician settlers from Tyre and Sidon (modern day Lebanon), Carthage was an ancient Mediterranean powerhouse.

Tourism is pretty well developed in Tunisia and it is a major source of income for the country with tourists visiting from across the globe. Tourists can spend their vacation on the gorgeous Mediterranean beaches or tour Tunisia.

Hotel star ratings are not on par with European and US standards — a 4 star hotel is the equivalent of a 5 star. Hotels in Tunisia can be very cheap and are of a high standard in relation to other European Destinations.
