Things to do in Tunisia

- Nestled just off Tunisia's north coast, Djerba Island is a stunning spot for a beach getaway. The isle has several idyllic beaches fringed with date palms. Houmt Souk is also great for shopping, especially if you’re after handmade ceramics.
- Interested in learning about Tunisia's long history? Sousse Archaeological Museum is a good place to start. Housed inside an 11th century fort, it boasts an awesome collection of Roman mosaics.
- Head to south Tunisia for an adventure in the Sahara Desert. Douz is the country’s gateway to these epic sand dunes and the Jebil National Park.
- Monastir is a prime location for Tunisia last minute breaks. Sand and sea aside, the city is also filled with gorgeous architecture. The Ribat of Monastir is particularly picturesque and has even featured in several films!

From majestic mosques to structures with UNESCO World Heritage recognition, Tunisia holidays are ideal for history lovers.
- One of the country’s best-known UNESCO sites is Carthage. A suburb of Tunis, it was once the seat of the Carthaginian Empire. The Romans later captured it in 2 BC and you’ll find it’s now teeming with Roman ruins.
