Few visitors to Tunisia venture beyond the commercial Mediterranean coast. This comprehensive journey discovers the ancient part of the African Maghreb. With a fascinating culture reflecting the contrasting influences of the Mediterranean and the Sahara, and a diverse occupation through the ages from the Phoenicians to the French, a rich historical legacy has survived. We also venture south to discover a simpler Saharan lifestyle that has changed little over the centuries Classical highlights include the superb Roman sites of Dougga and El Djem, plus the remarkable mosaics of the famous Bardo museum. The Islamic site of Kairouan, ancient medinas of Sfax and Tunis and fascinating Berber villages of the Sahara make this a wonderful journey of contrasting architecture, culture and peoples.
