Tunisia, officially known as the Tunisian Republic, is the northernmost country in Africa. Tunisia lies along the coastline of the Mediterranean Sea. The smallest country in the Maghreb region of North Africa, it is located at the south of Malta and Italy and is bordered by Libya to the southeast and Algeria to the west. The country has a population of an estimated 10.8 million. Its capital city is Tunis, found on the northeast coast of the land. Home of the ancient city of Carthage, Tunisia's culture dates to antiquity as evidenced and presented by archaeological exhibits – from Roman mosaics to Islamic artistry predominant in the country.

What to see & do

From its grand ancient structures and ruins and the vast dunes of the Sahara to its beautiful beaches, medians, and mosques, Tunisia offers a taste of North Africa's history and diverse natural beauty. Head to the capital city and lose yourself in the maze of medina alleyways in Tunis. Do not miss the grand Maghreban mosques, madrasas, and tombs of Kairouan – a grand Arabic architecture and the fourth most important city for the Muslims. Walk like a gladiator at the El Djem Ampitheatre, which is one of the few well-preserved Roman relics standing in the world. Visit the old world in Carthage and relearn about the ancient past of the Phoenicians and the Punic wars. The Bardo National Museum contains important exhibits, mosaics, and artefacts that show the country's multifaceted culture. For a sun-soaked experience, visit Hammamet – the country's top resort which is both dreamy and charming. There is also Monastir, as well as Sousse – two beach resorts that are well known amongst sun-loving Europeans who also have a knack for exploring the country's rich historic heritage. Monastir has a history that dates back to the time of Hannibal and is home to an important museum and monastery. Sousse is declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its authenticity. For more sun and sand, get on a camel for a trip into the desert. For more picturesque locations, don't forget to drop by Chott el Djerid, a desolate landscape full of nature's raw and telling beauty.
