Tunisia perfectly showcases a successful relationship between old and new, traditional and contemporary. An Islamic nation, the most northerly country in Africa and with strong Moorish influences, it became a French colony in the late 1800s. Today it is an independent republic offering an eclectic mix of its three main influences to create its own unique identity.
The country’s capital, Tunis, has a stunning Medina (or Old Town) at its center whilst also being a modern and thriving city at the same time. Whilst the population is mostly Muslim, Tunisia is one of the most liberal countries in the Arab world, where alcohol is freely available and both western and Islamic dress are witnessed in equal measures. Modern Tunis also surrounds the remains of ancient Carthage, one of the most important trading cities in the ancient European world.
With its sun-drenched, sandy Mediterranean coast, dotted with palm trees and clear azure water, there’s plenty of opportunities for rest and relaxation. Friendly, welcoming and beautiful, Tunisia offers something for everyone the whole year round.
