Sightseeing.

Tunis is the capital of Tunisia (since 1956) and the country’s main port situated on the shores of Lake Tunis. This is a very unique city, which combines most recently built spa centers, the traditional Muslim architecture and a large number of interesting museums and markets.

35 km from the capital lie the ruins of the ancient city of Carthage (founded in 814 BC), the capital of one of the most powerful ancient countries.

Hammamet is an ancient fishing port and one of the most popular sea resorts in the country, that lies along the coast, 70 km south-east of the capital.

The city of Nabeul is found 7 km north of Hammamet. It was founded more in the 4th cent. BC (formerly known as Neapolis).

Along the northern coast of the country lie the rocky beaches of the Coral Bank, surrounded by cliffs, reefs and historic ruins.

Bizerte (65 km to the north of Tunisia) is famous for its magnificent forests growing on the slopes of an extinct volcano, as well as its well-preserved casbah (6th -17th cent.) and the Spanish Fort (1570).

Tabarka is an ancient Phoenician port with a Genoa fortress (16th cent.) and picturesque rocks. The city lies at the foot of the Krumiriya rocks.

El Kef (Le Kef) is a small picturesque town surrounded by olive groves and situated in a mountainous area at an altitude of over 800 m.

The city of Sousse is a famous tourist center of Tunisia. Its recreational opportunities are being used effectively. This is the third largest city of Tunisia and it offers perfect conditions for a modern holiday, including excursions, active recreation and relaxation.

Kairouan, the “Holy City”, lies 60 km south-west of Sousse. It was founded in 670 BC. In the Islamic world, Kairouan is considered the fourth most important shrine after Mecca, Medina and Jerusalem.

24 km south of Sousse lies Monastir, an international recreational center. The main historical attraction of Monastir is the ruins of Rabat Hartem, defence structures dated the 8th cent.

45 km south of Monastir lies Mehdia, an ancient Punic port and the capital of Tunisia in the time of the Fatimid Dynasty. Most importantly, the city boasts its luxurious white sand beaches with a relatively small number of tourists.

Sfax, which is the second largest city of Tunisia after the capital, lies south of Mahdia, on the northern cape of the Gulf of Gabes.

The major attractions of Gafsa, the biggest city in the south of Tunisia and one of the oldest cities in the country, include a 15th-centrury fortress and the Great Mosque.

There are beautiful landscapes between Gafsa and Tozeur, including the most beautiful oases of Tunisia, Mides, Shebika and Tamerza.

Tourism.

Modern infrastructure, exceptional natural conditions and the hospitality of the locals contribute to an unforgettable holiday in Tunisia, both for lovers of peace and fans of endless entertainment. Tourist resorts, such as Hammamet, Sousse, Monastir and Tabarka, that decorate catalogs and brochures about Tunis, in reality look just like the images from the glossy pages. These resorts win the hearts of their visitors by their beauty and tourists are eager to visit them whatever it takes to get here. They do not even have a clue that they have settled near less glamorous and interesting resorts, such as Mehdia, Ghar el-Mel, Bizerte and Nabeul, which have a smaller of visitors and can be more comfortable because of that.

Lovers of a wide variety of active entertainment come to Tunisia for a big dose of joy.

No doubt, yachting enthusiasts have heard about the excellent conditions of the Tabarka resort, the Jasmine Hammamet yacht club and a luxurious artificial harbor called Marina, on the outskirts of Sousse, at which over 350 yachts can be moored at a time.

Fans of surfing and windsurfing will get a lot of pleasure out of a holiday spent in Tunisia, which is especially unique in Tabarka.
