El Jem

As you come from Sousse or Sfax, the first sight that you will see is a grand amphitheatre. This colossal structure once was the scene for cruel games that Romans had invented and played. Concerts and orchestras have now replaced the haunting cries of beasts and martyrs.


Tunis is a heaven for art lovers. Shopping becomes a nearly divine experience with small brass wares, antiques and souvenirs, Berber jewellery and bright clothes surrounding you.


If you want to see Roman sites as well as enjoy water sports, Djerba is the place to go. This popular tourist destination has on offer natural beauty, vast stretches of sand beaches, thousands of palm trees, pirates castle and so much more that you will not want to leave this city.

Sidi Bou Said

Perched on the cliffs, this lovely blue and white village is the most loved place of Tunisia. St. Louis, it is said, came to wage a war but instead fell in love with a Berber princess and then they happily lived ever after in this quaint village.
