Tunisia is a vibrant country, rich in history and engrossing culture; much more than just beach holiday destination.
Upon arrival at Africa's most northerly country, you encounter a mix of vibrant cities and peaceful, unspoilt lands that beg for exploration. Beyond the famed stretches of golden sand beaches, relics such as the once mighty city-state of Carthage and an abundance of Roman ruin await. Tunis is a particular highlight, with its medieval medina (walled city), narrow streets and fascinating souks, and elegant 19th century French colonial boulevards.
As for food, you’re in for a treat. Spicy and aromatic (with plenty of couscous), Tunisian cuisine is influenced by Arabic, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and French flavours. Seafood is popular on the coast, but further inland you can sample the rustic-style stews of the Berbers.
Of course, if despite all that, your cruise to Tunisia was driven by the promise of those stunning beaches, you won’t be disappointed.
