3 Reasons to Visit Tunisia


Have you ever thought about visiting Tunisia? If not, you’re missing out on a hidden gem! Sandwiched between Algeria and Libya, this North African nation might just be one of the most fascinating places to visit. Here are three reasons to start planning your trip. 

Incredible Historical Sites

Tunisia is a treasure trove of historical wonders. In fact, the country has several UNESCO World Heritage Sites! Start with the ancient city of Carthage, once a major power of the Mediterranean, with ruins that tell tales of its storied history under the Carthaginians, Romans, and Byzantines. Then, check out the stunning Roman amphitheater of El Djem–one of the best-preserved Roman stone ruins in the world!

Stunning Natural Landscapes

Tunisia’s geography is as diverse as its history. From the sparkling waters of the Mediterranean coast to the vast expanses of the Sahara Desert, there is so much to explore. Adventure seekers can embark on a safari in Douz, the gateway to the Sahara. To wind down, visit the idyllic island of Djerba.

Culture and Cuisine

Tunisian culture is a blend of Arab, African, and Mediterranean influences, which is vividly reflected in its cuisine, music, and traditions. Taste the local fare with dishes like couscous, brik (a deep-fried pastry), and spicy merguez sausage.
