Location and orientation
The North and East of Tunisia are bordered by the Mediterranean, the South-East by Libya and the West by Algeria. The country's three largest cities are Tunis, its capital, to the northeast, Sfax and Sousse, both further south on the coast. Almost a third of Tunisia's territory is occupied by the Sahara desert while its coasts are home to a large number of renowned seaside resorts, such as Djerba in the south and Hammamet in the north. Its high level of sunshine and the extreme diversity of its landscapes largely explain Tunisia's incredible success with tourists.Getting to Tunisia from France
From France, the easiest way to get to Tunisia is of course by plane. Dozens of direct flights are operated every day from Paris but also from Lyon, Lille or Marseille. Most flights are to Tunis-Carthage airport, but there are also flights to Djerba-Zarzis Airport and Monastir. If you are planning to stay in Tunis or want to enjoy your rental in a seaside resort to tan all day, you will hardly need a vehicle. On the other hand, renting a car is a good idea if you want to drive along the coast, explore the country or explore Jbil National Park.
Destination for lovers of beach tourism
Djerba is a small island in the Mediterranean off the Tunisian West Coast and connected to it by a bridge and shuttle boats. Since the 1960s, the island has become a reference station. It has around twenty kilometres of fine sandy beaches and offers holidaymakers a very wide choice of activities: thalassotherapy, golf, water skiing or parachuting. Nicknamed "the island of golden sands" by Gustave Flaubert, Djerba is a small paradise where you can sunbathe and swim in warm waters from April to October.Party and water sports in Port El-Kantaoui
This resort north of Sousse is famous for its 7-kilometre long beach, but above all for its vast marina and pedestrian district teeming with elegant Arab-Moorish white buildings. After sunbathing, treat yourself to a sea trip, attend one of the many regattas organised throughout the summer and finish the evening with a cocktail in a bar facing the Mediterranean.
Although Tunisia is the smallest country in North Africa, it has no less than 1,300 kilometres of coastline, the vast majority of which is sandy.
Top 5 things to do
The Bardo is one of the most beautiful museums in the Mediterranean basin. Located in the inner suburbs of Tunis, it has a wide selection of archaeological remains and is renowned for its collection of mosaics from the Roman period. Among his masterpieces are also the Blue Qur'an of Kairouan and a ninth century parchment.2. Taste many specialities
Tunisia has a cuisine rich in flavours, with a strong emphasis on spices such as saffron and ginger. Do not hesitate to try during your stay a Tunisian tagine that has nothing to do with the Moroccan version and comes in the form of a quiche, or stuffed bricks of all kinds, with tuna or egg for example.3. Discover local craftsmanship
Tunisia is a land rich in traditions. During your travels, you can for example discover the many pottery workshops in Guellala, south of Djerba. In Kairouan, carpets and glossy mosaics are highlighted.4. Treat yourself to an escape into the desert
Several regions of Tunisia are particularly famous for Saharan tourism. These include Nefzaoua, with the two oases of Douz and Kébili, as well as Matmata, famous for its cave dwellings. Many tourist companies organise treks of all lengths, from a few hours to several weeks, in the Sahara.5. Visit historical remains unique in the world
Even if you visit Tunisia for its beautiful beaches, it would be a pity not to take the opportunity to visit the site of Carthage, where a Punic city once stood, which was destroyed and then rebuilt by the Romans. Its vast archaeological site includes thermal baths and a theatre dating back to the second century AD. The El Jem amphitheatre, 75 km north of Sfax, is also a breathtaking testimony to Roman architecture.
