Carthage to Kairouan
Visit the splendid Roman sites of Tunisia, including Dougga, Uthina and El Djem, plus the holy city of Kairouan and ancient Carthage
Take in the bewildering contrasts of the familiar and the foreign on a tour of Tunisia. The wonderful mix of ancient and modern, desert and oasis, classical sites, ports and medinas is an exotic blend that gives this country its flavour and appeal.
The country encompasses beautiful coastlines, stunning Islamic architecture, Berber villages and the fascinating remains of once-bustling Roman cities. With its feet in the Sahara and its head in the Mediterranean, Tunisia covers an impressive diversity of scenic ground.
There are several UNESCO World Heritage sites to visit in Tunisia, including the impressive ancient Roman city of Dougga, Carthage and El Djem. Other highlights include the beautiful blue and white streets of Sidi Bou Said village, visits to the ‘Holy City’ of Kairouan and the major resort of Monastir, and the conserved fortress monasteries of Ribat of Sousse.
The capital of Tunis is home to 13th-century medina, the palatial Bardo museum, famous for its spectacular Roman mosaics and Islamic art, and the massive Al-Zaytuna Mosque. To the east is the ancient site of Carthage, one of the great cities of antiquity, where you’ll be able to explore the Antonine baths and unveil the lost city’s story at the Carthage National Museum.
