Africa - Tunisia (Chapter)
This is the Tunisia chapter from Lonely Planet's Africa guidebook.
Most visitors come to Tunisia for its long, golden beaches, non-stop summer sun, and Maghrebi exoticism on tap (package holidaymakers almost outnumber the locals in high summer). But outside high season and off the well-trodden routes, it's surprisingly underrated and often tourist-free.
- explore the gorgeous bougainvillea-clad Mediterranean town of Sidi Bou Saïd, drinking in sweeping views of the intensely blue Gulf of Tunis
- be overwhelmed by the splendour of Roman Africa in the Bardo Museum, not to mention the gorgeous Islamic palace it's housed in
- transport & directory
- experience Jerba's fascinating architecture, great beaches and unusual ethnic diversity
- restaurants & accommodation
