Would you like to discover the treasures of North Africa’s smallest country? This is your chance to visit Tunisia. As the capital and the country’s largest city, Tunis is built on a series of gently sloping hills that lead to the Lake of Tunis.
Enchanting for its exceptionally rich history and most welcoming atmosphere, the city has many fascinating tourist sites including the Sidi Mahrez and Zitouna mosques, the Rue du Tribunal, Belvédère park, the Bardo National Museum as well as the Cathedral of St. Vincent de Paul.
The medina is a must-see not only for its palaces but – of course – for its souks where you can haggle for just about anything. The lively nightlife of the dazzling neighborhood of Sidi Bou Saïd is also not to be missed.
