Things to Do in Tunisia

Want to know some of the standout things to do in Tunisia? Then have a look through our handpicked suggestions below...

1. Carthage, Tunis

Carthage was once a powerful trading center for the Roman Empire, (although it stretches even further back to the Phoenicians in the 6th century BC). Amongst its countless other treasures, the Antoinine thermal bath ruins are some of the largest baths built under the Roman Empire.

2. The Souks of Kairouan

Kairouan's souks are a rich mix of different market stalls selling reasonably priced, high-quality products ranging from gold jewelry to woven baskets. Even if you’re not looking to buy anything, a walk through the busy market is an unmissable experience.

3. Tabarka Bay, Tabarka

This beach front city is as rich in historical bounty as it is beautiful. A range of sports activities are available, but few things could be more relaxing than floating in the sparkling blue waters of the bay...

4. Bardo Museum, Tunis

This 13th century palace has been restored to its former glory with the most careful attention to detail. Its contents are arranged according to the era in which they originate, documenting Tunisia's prehistoric, Carthaginian, Islamic, Roman and Christian past.

5. Zitouna Mosque, Tunis

This mosque was first constructed in the 9th century, but the unmistakable minaret for which it’s most famous is a 19th century addition.
