Explore the Sahara
Head to the oasis town of Tozeur and you’re on the cusp of the gargantuan Sahara Desert, where you can discover the dunes by camelback, or much faster by 4x4. If you want to make the most of the experience, stay in the desert overnight, watch the awesome sunset, and fall asleep beneath the stars.
Immerse yourself in History
Tunisia has a rich and vibrant past, with plenty of heritage sites to explore if you’re a bit of a history buff. Choose from places including ancient Carthage, which is the site of many Punic and Roman ruins, or El Djem, where some of the most impressive Roman ruins in Africa can be found, including the amphitheatre of Thysdrus.
Experience the Hustle of the Souks
If you fancy learning the art of haggling, throw yourself into the deep end and head for one of the buzzing souks in Hammamet or Sousse. You can find everything there, from fabrics and rugs to jewellery and ceramics, and if you barter you can knock down the price and walk away with a bargain or two!
Hop Over to Djerba Island
Nestled a little off the south coast of Tunisia, Djerba Island is home to some stunning beaches, and its tranquil setting allows holidaymakers to enjoy a little peace and quiet that may be missed in the mainland resorts. It’s also got a host of medinas to wander, and inland you’ll find quaint villages and lush countryside.
