Tunisia Holidays

In view of the tragic killings in Tunisia in 2015 and the current FCO advice, we would recommend that you put on hold any thoughts of a Tunisia holiday and call us on 01285 880980 to discuss alternatives.

Why we like Tunisia

Although Tunisia combines well with Libya, for the moment that wonderful country remains out of bounds, making Tunisia, with a relatively short flight, an interesting alternative for a long weekend. A day in Tunis, a day exploring the north and another day exploring the south and home. Good weather, good hotels and easy to drive around – even self-drive would be an option.

What to expect on your Tunisia holiday

Despite being a North African Islamic state, Tunisia has managed to attract some of the less attractive elements of mass tourism, however on the positive side the majority of sun worshipers tend to congregate in a small stretch of coast and rarely venture further afield. And it is further afield where the visitor finds the majority of interesting Roman remains including the magnificent amphitheatre of El Djem. While sadly most of Carthage is now buried under a chic suburb of Tunis and barely worth a visit, the Bardo Museum displays what is arguably the finest collection of Roman mosaics in the world.

Some ideas for a Tunisia holiday

  • The Bardo Museum is a must.
  • The Roman remains at Dougga and El Djem.
  • The white washed hill top village of Sidi Bou Said is very pretty if a little touristy.
  • Kairouan is the holiest city in North Africa with a skyline of minarets and packed to the brim with beautiful examples of Islamic architecture.
