And by following the instructions of the Tunisia guide, you will discover a rich heritage where the inhabitants have preserved what history has given them. All you have to do is walk around the medina of Tunis or Sousse to realize this. It is also the ideal destination for a seaside holiday where you can enjoy sipping mint tea by the pool or on a fine sandy beach in Port El Kantaoui or Djerba. It is also the ideal country to enjoy care in low-cost thalassotherapy centres during your holidays. It is a land of adventure where you can go on camel rides in the desert, or even walk the sand dunes of the Sahara on a quad and discover superb oases such as Tozeur and its magnificent palm trees for example. Tunisia is a land of a thousand and one wonders with paradisiacal landscapes that will never cease to surprise you.

When to go to Tunisia?

In seaside resorts, the high tourist season is concentrated in the months of July-August, when it is the hottest period with an average of 30°C on the Mediterranean coast. This is where you will find the highest hotel rates. The low tourist season runs from November to March or April. The rest of the time is the middle season. Some resort hotels do not take the latter into account, however, it is common to have high season tourist rates in June, September and October. In the North African desert, the high season begins in October, culminates during the Christmas and New Year holidays and ends at the end of January. On the other hand, summer is the low tourist season in the desert: hotels therefore offer attractive prices, but beware of the hot weather!

Tunis-Carthage International Airport is served by many airlines and is located 8 km northwest of Tunis. Tunisia is a country with a good level of security. All you have to do is pay attention to your business, especially in the souks. Throughout the country, travellers circulate freely, except in the Saharan areas, where it is prohibited, for security reasons, to enter without prior notification to the national guard.

A long-distance bus network serves all cities and is the cheapest means of transport. You can also rent a car quite easily, it is a good way to get around but beware of the sporty driving of Tunisians. In the South, and especially on the desert tracks, you need a 4x4. The Tunisian rail network is good but does not serve the whole country. Domestic airlines serve the largest cities but the fares are quite high.
