Tunis is the capital of Tunisia, a country located in North Africa along the Mediterranean coast. The country is small and has not had the extreme influx of tourists that its neighbors have experienced. Because of this, it is a hidden gem in North Africa and is the perfect place for a quiet and relaxing holiday.
Once in Tunis, you will find yourself astounded with gorgeous architecture, exotic marketplaces or souks, and beautiful minarets. Because it is a coastal city, there are several beachside places to eat, drink, and relax in the sunshine. In other words, you don’t have to worry about not finding things to do in Tunis while you are on holiday in this beautiful city.
The Tunisian desert is a magnificent expanse of rolling sands under glittering starlight. Take a trip out to the desert and spend an evening or two camping for an unforgettable experience.
The Tunis zoo is also a great place to go for the day to see some beautiful African flora and fauna.
In the city, the old part of town is known as the medina, which means “city” in Arabic, and is the location of the great mosque in Tunis. There are also several palaces and other attractions in the medina, as well as excellent accommodations that most visitors choose to stay at for their holidays.
There are several bars and clubs in Tunis and the nightlife is usually vibrant and exciting.
