"You absolutely must see three..." Tunisia Favorite Tip by aliante1981

Tunisia General: 269 reviews and 296 photos


Favorite thing: You absolutely must see three things: visit Roman ruins, get acquainted with the local culture and take a camel ride in the Sahara desert.
-------- FACT FILE TUNISIA --------- Full official name: Repiblic of
Tunisia ________ Area Sq. Km.: 164 000 _________
Population: ~ 9 350 000 ___________
Capital: Tunis ______________ Languages: Arabic, French _______________ Currency: Tunisian Dinar 

My top ten of places for Tunisia:

Dougga ------ Thuburbo Majus ------ Kairouan------Carthage ------ Sousse ------ El Jem ------ Matmata ------- Chott-el-Jerid ------ Chebika ------Sbeitla

What I do regret: My principal regret is
that I have not managed to visit the island of
Djerba but there is still plenty of time for doing this!

Fondest memory: My fondest memory... It's so difficult to choose one of them. But if I had to say right away, I would say the sunset in the Sahara, near Douz.
