Out and about on Holiday in Tunisia:

From archaeological sites to championship golf courses, souks and medinas to glorious beaches, desert plains to green national parks; it's fair to say that Tunisia has a diverse landscape to support a wide range of holiday activities and attractions.

Overlooking the Gulf of Tunis, the capital of Tunisia, Tunis is a wonderful blend of elegant boulevards and architecturally glamorous buildings which form the Ville Nouvelle and the chaotic maze of passageways surrounding the souks and mosques of the ancient Medina. Whilst on holiday in Tunisia visit the Bardo National Musuem, one of the greatest museums in North Africa. On the outskirts of the city lies the city of Carthage, which dates back to 814BC; a remarkable archaeological treasure and indeed a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The long white sandy beaches and clear waters in Tunisia are perfect for soaking up the sun or enjoying watersports such as scuba diving and snorkelling, windsurfing, paragliding and jet skiing. Horse riding and camel riding are also available from many of the holiday beaches in Tunisia. A favoured diving spot for holiday makers is the reef off of Tabarka Beach, to which you could take a boat trip from Porto Corallo marina or, there is a prestigious diving school at Monastir Beach.

The artisan centre of Kairouan in Tunisia is rich in history and islamic culture. The ancient medina, dating back to the 9th century, boasts magnificent architecture, dozens of mosques and hundreds of shops selling exquisite carpets and intricate hand crafted brass works and leather items.

For a fun day out with the family on holiday in Tunisia why not try Carthageland, at Yasmine Hammamet. It has a theme park, aqua park, a mini zoo and a discovery centre. For a more educational day out in Tunisia, Djerba Explore Park, on the Isle of Djerba, is styled like a traditional village with shops and restaurants, an art and history museum and an ethnological centre.

For an unforgettable day on your holiday in Tunisia try the 19th century Red Lizard Train. Adventure and fabulous scenery can be found on a journey through the old mining country, from Metlaoui to Redeyef, through tunnels and over bridges, passing gorges, mountains and barren desert.
