Africa - Tunisia (Chapter)
This is the Tunisia chapter from Lonely Planet’s Africa guidebook.
Tunisia’s sand-fringed, jasmine-scented coast is usually equated with Mediterranean sun holidays. The capital offers an enthralling mix of tradition and modernity, Islamic serenity and seaside hedonism. Inland, stunning Roman sites, forested hinterland, Saharan dunes and mountain oases can be experienced in a few days.
