With crystal blue waters, sandy bays and a rich, cultural history, Tunisia is the perfect place to go on holiday. On your holiday to Tunisia, you can choose to explore Hammamet’s resort or the city of Monastir. Both places are home to some amazing history, like Monastir’s Forte El Ribat castle which sits on the seafront, or the 13th century Kasbah in Hammamet. If you prefer to soak up some traditional culture on your holiday to Tunisia, wander down to Monastir’s marina to look at the pretty boats and mingle amongst locals, or pick up a bargain at Hammamet’s Medina.

A land bursting with souks and spices amidst desert dunes. A place for romantics, beach-lovers, barterers and adventurers, this sun-kissed land entices and delights many people for many reasons. The Romans loved it, and so do we, and it’s not hard to think why with our great selection of Tunisia holidays. Echoing with the regular call to prayer, Hammamet will give you a rich taste of the exotic.

Tunisia is known for its soft, clean and long sandy beaches which run along the coastline from Hammamet in the north-east down to Madhia. Take a stroll along the promenade or head to the marinas for a great way to discover the local area. Then dine out in style, perhaps trying the Tunisian speciality of Brik, a deep-fried tuna and egg turnover, or the national dish of couscous, beside the clear, Mediterranean waters.  Tunisia is home to several professional golf courses too, which will keep even the keenest golfer happy.  Many of the hotels in Tunisia are like mini holiday resorts, offering a high standard of accommodation for a truly relaxing break. Some hotels have their own spas and thalassotherapy centres too, where you can indulge with a treatment in tranquil surroundings.

Imagine yourself on a 4x4 land cruiser, visiting scenes from the Star Wars films and the location for the Oscar-winning film The English Patient. Visit Tozeur and one of the largest oases in North Africa, by horse and carriage.  The pretty village of Sidi Bou Said, close to the capital, is a delightful site, all painted in blue and white. Nabeul’s market is also a great stop for some authentic souvenirs; it’s said to be the largest street market in North Africa!

The captivating Roman ruins at Carthage, the UNESCO World Heritage site at Dougga and the colossal Roman amphitheatre at El Djem are just a taster of the unmissable history on offer in Tunisia. Even the resorts themselves are filled with history, from the medieval walled medinas to the traditional markets. It’s easy to immerse yourself into the traditions and history that makes Tunisia the fascinating destination it is today.
