Old and new, exotic and traditional, the captivating north-African country of Tunisia sits at the heart of the Mediterranean, caught in a cleft between Algeria and Libya, offering the world’s travellers some sumptuous modern seaside resorts set side by side with a treasure trove of ancient Roman, Arab, Berber and Phoenician sites.
Just a few miles north of the capital, Tunis, lie the remains of the legendary ancient city of Carthage, founded in the 8th century BC. By contrast Tunis is a hustling, bustling modern metropole where steel, glass and palm trees form the backdrop to streets filled with fast-moving yellow taxis.
In the heart of this surprisingly pristine city, however, the centuries slip away in the medieval Medina, a haven for souvenir hunters with hundreds of narrow streets crammed with vendors of antiques, jewellery, pottery, carpets, perfumes, dried fruit, books, spices and many other delights.
Also, no tourist should miss a visit to the Bardo Museum in the city for the joy of viewing one of the world’s greatest collections of Roman mosaics.
