I visited Tunisia four times. My first visit was in 1979 and like my visit to Morocco a few years before I liked also this North African country at first sight. So I came back three times in the 90s. And I hope to come back again.

Tunisia has a lot to offer. Of course the desert in the south, the palmeraies and the old Berber towns, but there are also many scenic fishing towns and lovely beaches all over the country.

Tunisia has a huge cultural heritage. There are many ancient Roman sites to explore and the Islamic architecture of the walled medinas and the mosques with an own developed Tunisian style is very interesting.

    Excellent page on Tunisia. You have seen so much of interest over your many visits. Like the look of the Roman ruins, and like you, I find the fish markets interesting too!

    I'l be back to finish this soon. It looks as though a short visit to Tunis will be part of our next trip to Libya (March '09), a nice little bonus. Lots of good info here as always. leyle

    Fantastic page about a place I knew little about ... fascinating to read about the traditional technique for octopus catching. Thanks for sharing, Ali.

    Fantastic page, Ali. You included all the best of Tunisia and even more... Wow, I didn't visit Sbeitla. Great shot of sunset in Sidi Bou Said :-) The Marhala Hotel worked great for me, too.
