Beautiful Tunisia overlooks the Mediterranean and is one of those places that very few people might know about, yet those that do try to tell the whole world about it. 


Maybe Tunisia is Africa’s hidden gem.


“Tunisia, officially the Republic of Tunisia, is a country in the Maghreb region of North Africa, covering 163,610 square kilometers. Its northernmost point, Cape Angela, is also the northernmost point on the African continent.” – Wikipedia

Most Beautiful Coastal Town Sidi Bou Said Tunis Africa


Tunisia’s capital is the city of Tunis.  It is a beautiful clean city with pretty mosaics and beautiful buildings. 

We can assure you that you will experience the people as being friendly, and the one place you just have to visit while you are in Tunis, is the Medina.  The Medina of Tunis is a UNESCO World Heritage site and definitely worth a visit.  This is shopping heaven for those of us loving to browse through markets and quaint little shops.  The very colorful Medina’s narrow alleys are stacked with shops and you’ll find yourself not knowing where to look first.  It truly is a shopper’s dream.  And don’t worry about getting lost, just keep walking.  Enjoy the very clean alleys and the opportunity to explore.  You don’t need a tour guide to explore the Medina, but if you want to book one, Get Your Guide (link below) do have trusted guides available.  They have loads of information and knowledge about the best things to experience, so it is a great idea to book your own guide.

One of the photo opportunity spots is Dar Lasram, a renovated palace of the medina of Tunis which is located at 24 Tribunal Street.
