Ferries to Tunisia

Tunisia: find more

 


Tunisia offers a number of attractions comparable to the capacity of a Country twice larger.
Its rich landscapes have experienced a sensational number of events.
You will just need to spend few days in this Country to have an idea of its heritage. Daydreaming before the glorious Roman ruins of Carthage and El-Jem will be like plunging into Virgil’s 'Aeneid', whereas one day of absolute relax lying on the beaches of the Northern coast will make you wonder about what absurd reason made Hannibal flee away from here.
Although tourism has always been simple throughout the Country, lovers of frenzy holiday camps will not be disappointed. Whichever your interest is, Tunisia will satisfy you.
 




 


Tunis, the capital and sea destination of Grimaldi Lines, more than other cities of the Country shows off its double soul: its old Arab heritage and its modernity.
On one hand the Medina, Tunis’ beating heart (included in the UNESCO world heritage list), a labyrinth of alleys, colours and voices showing off the best of Tunisian handcraft.
Here, there is also one of the most relevant religious centres of the Arab world -the Jamma Zitouna (the Olive Mosque) as well as one of the most beautiful palaces of the Arab period, the Dar Hussein of the XVIII century housing the National Institute for Archeology and Arts.
On the other hand, the modern European face of the city offers grand hotels, cafés and shops along the elegant Avenue Bourgiba.

A visit of the Museum of the Bard and the archeologic Park of Chartage is a must.
It could be also funny to enjoy a walk on a camel or to walk through one of the famous suks, covered markets where fabrics and clothes are sold together;
Besides, coming to the cuisine part, it could be interesting to highlight that Tunisian traditional dishes are cuscus (a typical mixture of vegetables and bran grains), the Brik (a thin stuffed fritter), and the méchouia salad.

 





Among the main attractions of this Country, there is the desert of Sahara, the widest of the world; besides, many touristic agencies organise visits to the peculiar and unique Berber villages.
Tunisia is also appreciated for its various cultural and musical events as the Yasmine Hammamet Festival, the International Festival of Carthage and Medina Festival.
