"From the other side of the Mediterranean . . ." Top 5 Page for this destination Tunisia by Elisabcn

Tunisia Travel Guide: 5,000 reviews and 14,108 photos

« Maître ! » dit l'ancien esclave, «Si ton coeur est intrépide, je te conduirai dans Carthage. »

It's strange . . . I came to Tunisia because of the Mediterranean Sea and at the end I will leave missing the abandoned remains spread over the western landscapes and the (Dorsale) Mountains.

Many trips to the north and the coast, i have almost visited all the "interesting" and "curious" destinations there.

One page about Kairouan: I visited it (again) in December 2008 and the colors and life of that smiling city warmed my heart

An Andalusian village in the middle of the Tunisian mountains?? Don't miss Zaghouan, its colorful fountains with fresh water and the impressive Temple des Eaux

Please come in, follow me . . . and enjoy

Special thanks to *Nico*, Cristina, Leticia, Carles, Cecilia, Simone and Narcis who decided to fly to Tunisia to spend some time with me and for their moral support "sur place" ;-)). Together we discovered Tunisia, we laughed a lot and we had a good time. Again a big MERCI!!

    Cordoba's amphitheatre was the second biggest but those are excavations only. According to Italian sources the second biggest is the one in Capua, third biggest is Pozzuoli (40.000), so it seems El Jem is fourth, btw Pozzuoli is less known and not much visited by the tourists.

    I will return to look at you Tunisia page. I missed an opportunity to go there a year ago and now regret it. Hopefully soon!

    Also visit Le Tea Shop whic is a lovely old cafe with mosaics and has free WIFI. It is at the bottom of the main tourist hill.

    Browsing your Tunisia pages brings back a lot of memories from my short 2-week visit there. Great job!

    My first visit to your Tunisia page has been enough to stir my interest, Elisa. From here, Tunisia seems so remote, exotic and different

    I experienced all the 4 basic rules day by day very well! Discovering them by myself (and with your ‘little’ help ;) ), was funny even if I am still a bit "shocked" for my journey from Sfax in a good way. *N*

Elisabcn Used To Live Here!
