About Tunisia

Tunisia is the smallest country in North Africa with a great cultural heritage thanks to the many empires that left their imprint. It's a modern country on the Mediterranean where you can relax on the magnificent beaches or dazzle with the wonderful oases that arise amidst the endless dunes. Discover the Sahara desert, the largest in the world, a magical place full of mystery.

Moving around

The easiest way to get to Tunisia is by plane and recently even more thanks to the low cost airlines flying from Europe. The boat is also a good option if you bring the car. In the capital, the subway communicates the main points of interest. Another option is to take a taxi. They are of two types: the yellow ones with taximeter and the collective ones, without. In the latter case, it's better if you negotiate the price with the driver before the journey.

Out & About

One of the biggest appeals of Tunisia is the sea thanks to the hundreds of kilometers of beaches with services and the thousands of kilometers of pristine, virgin beaches. Here you can enjoy numerous water activities like diving. In the south lies the endless sand dunes of the Sahara. If you like adventure, there's nothing better than a trip through the desert, camping next to an oasis and sleeping under millions of stars. As in many Arab cities, the most interesting zone of Tunis is inside the Medina. You can access it by the door of France, one of the antique doors. Inside the Medina, admire the Great Mosque (Ziyuona), also known as the mosque of the olive tree. La Goulette is the port of Tunis and it's worth visiting. Very close to the city, you'll find the small and charming village of Sidi Bou Said where you can enjoy the Tunisian environment at its most authentic state. The main tourist spot is Hammamet thanks to its beaches and gardens. In fact, it's known as the Saint Tropez of Tunisia. Golf lovers will also have a great time thanks to the many great quality golf courses in the country. The island of Djerba is known as the Polynesia of the Mediterranean. This island, along with the area of the Gulf of Gabes, is two of the best places to dive. Madhia is the old Fatimid capital and it has beautiful beaches and magnificent forts. Port El Kantaoui and Sousse are a mix of modernism and tradition with the typical charm of a Tunisian village. Tabarka is in the north of the country and it's a natural paradise with its coves, sandy beaches and crystalline waters.

What's going on in

There's no date set for Muslim religious holidays, they vary each year according to their calendar, so you should check before you travel.

Shopping

The Tunisian tapestries are different in every region depending on the motifs and colors used. The ceramics of Djerba are greatly appreciated and the leather and embroidery of Nabeil as well. To purchase authentic and traditional objects, you have to visit the Medina where you'll find the different souks of the various artisans. For example, there is the Perfume Souk where you'll be intoxicated with the scents of incense, perfumes, candles... The souk Koumach is the textile market while the Turkish souk offers a variety of crafts. In the new part of town, the Avenue Bourguiba has the highest concentration of shops, boutiques and restaurants.

What's cooking?

Tunisian cuisine is rich and varied. It's the result of the combination of various influences such as Arab, Berber and European. Tunisian food is mostly based on fish or lamb. The principal dish is couscous, either with lamb, chicken or fish. It's prepared following many different recipes depending on the country and the ingredients used but they all are delicious. You cannot let go the opportunity to try the delicious lamb with mint or the wonderful kerkenesa prawns. You must try the delicious pastries called baklava, with honey and nuts, accompanied by the typical mint tea, strong and loaded with sugar. Tea is usually served as a sign of courtesy so it's better to accept it.

Weather

Although the summer months are when thermometers reach the highest temperatures, it's the best time to enjoy the country in all its splendor. If you make a route through the desert and mountains, don't forget that it's hot during the day but at night temperatures drop.

Practical information

The languages of Tunisia are Arabic and French and the currency is the Tunisian dinar. When changing money, please note that you cannot import or export the dinar. European Union citizens don't need a visa, only the passport. It's advisable to drink only bottled water and also be careful with the ice in drinks, food from street stalls and fresh juices. Not everyone who comes to Tunisia is accustomed to it but bargaining in Tunisia is a very common thing.

So...

From the first moment, the magic of this country will wrap you: the mixture of a rich past with a promising future, the chanting of the call to prayer that hypnotizes or the millions of stars under which you will sleep in the desert.
