About Tunisia

Although not as well-known as its fellow North African nation of Egypt, Tunisia is a hidden gem with a rich history, iconic architecture and much more to offer visiting tourists. The northeast region is most popular with visitors and it’s easy to see why – along the northeast coast there’s a series of spectacular resort cities including Hammamet, Sousse and Monastir. From any of these fantastic destinations, you can enjoy views across the Mediterranean Sea and exotic white-sand beaches.

The climate is desirable the whole year round as Tunisia experiences the best of both the Mediterranean and African weather – so you can expect warm days with blue skies and cool, star-lit nights. There’s plenty to keep the family entertained as well, including ancient Roman ruins, sprawling markets and even a few iconic locations from your favourite films. If you’re on the lookout for a holiday unlike any other Tunisia is the one for you.

Tunisia’s northeast coastline boasts every type of accommodation, catering to almost any budget. If you want the very best experience, you should look out for resorts with private Mediterranean beaches offering a range of luxury services, like La Badire in Hammamet or the JAZ Tour Khalef Thalasso & Spa in Sousse. Thrifty travellers can grab a bargain too by looking for less popular resorts which provide great service at a much lower price.

The labyrinthine markets of Tunisia have plenty to offer visitors hoping to indulge in retail therapy. If you’re looking to pick up a bargain, you can find just about anything at any of the Medinas (or markets) found in most Tunisian cities. Alternatively, there’s plenty of places to enjoy a more western shopping experience including the Soula Center in Sousse and the Costa Market in Hammamet. No matter where you go shopping, be prepared to barter and haggle as it’s a common practice throughout the country.

Although you might be unfamiliar with Tunisian cuisine, there’s a wealth of foods to try during your visit to the country. One of the country’s most popular dishes is Brik, a type of thin pasty with a variety of fillings and often served at lunch. Couscous is a must as Tunisian couscous is famous for its blend of unique flavours. However, if you have more of a sweet tooth you should also try khobz mella which is a prized sweet bread that takes several hours to make.

We currently offer regular flights to and from Enfidha-Hammamet International Airport which are operated by TUI. These flights take around 2 hours 25 minutes. From Enfidha-Hammamet International Airport you can easily explore all the northeast coast of Tunisia, with the option to also head further into the countryside if you wish.

Thanks to Tunisia’s rich history with the Roman Empire and Carthage there are plenty of unique holidays and festivals to enjoy. Any of these events will make a great centrepiece for a holiday, but we have a few favourites that are sure to create unforgettable memories:

International Festival Of Carthage

While originally a festival dedicated to celebrating the history of Carthage, the International Festival Of Carthage has become a more traditional music festival – attracting well-known acts like Shaggy and One Republic in recent years. If you’re planning a visit in late July it’s worth checking the main acts as you may find some of your favourite musicians playing for far less than they would in the UK.

Summer Discounts

Similar to Black Friday, the Summer Discounts are a period from August 1st to September 15th when stores slash prices with the hope of selling their wares to tourists and visitors shopping shortly after the Eid holiday. If you’re a bit of a shopaholic this is a perfect opportunity to go wild.

With a varied Mediterranean landscape, Tunisia offers plenty of things to do and see:

El Jem Amphitheatre

Although not on the scale of the Coliseum in Rome, the El Jem Amphitheatre is one of the few remaining amphitheatres that has stayed relatively intact since the Roman era. The remnants are exciting to explore as there are thousands of small details left from the amphitheatre’s ancient occupants. Film buffs will also notice that the El Jem Amphitheatre has appeared in several movies including Monty Python’s Life of Brian.

The Bardo National Museum

One of the largest museums in Africa, the Bardo National Museum has an incredible collection of artefacts from all over the Mediterranean. Security has been tightened greatly in response to the 2015 terrorist attack, making the museum one of the safest attractions in Tunisia. This is a fantastic day out for families and history buffs alike.
