Day 1

Tunis Medina - Carthage - Sidi Bou Said

We'll pick you up from your hotel in Tunis and bring you to the labyrinth-like alleyways of Tunis Medina where you'll find everything from spices and textiles to handmade crafts and souvenirs. You might be surprised by what kind of wonders you might find: decorated doors, small fountains, charming corners, and so much more. Take in the local atmosphere and have mint tea in one of the cafes. Admire the marvelous city views from a rooftop terrace and see the stunning Minaret of Al-Zaytuna Mosque, a major mosque at the center of the Medina. The mosque is the oldest in Tunis, built in the 8th century and covers an area of 5,000 square meters with 9 entrances. 

We'll make a stop at the must-see National Bardo Museum, a jewel of Tunisian heritage, housed in a stunning 19th century palace. Its collections offer a fascinating journey through Tunisia's rich history, from Prehistory to the present day. The museum boasts the world's largest collection of mosaics, including the famous Virgil mosaic, as well as an impressive array of Punic jewels, Roman sarcophagi, and Christian baptisteries. A highlight of any visit is the gallery of Hellenistic Greek art masterpieces recovered from a Roman shipwreck off the coast of Cape Africa.

We'll continue to the Acropolium of Carthage, located on Byrsa Hill in Carthage. It's not only an architectural marvel from the colonial era, but also a significant addition to Tunisia's contemporary cultural scene and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Founded in the 9th century BC, Carthage was one of the most important trading centers in the Mediterranean, flourishing for years until it was destroyed in 146 BC after the Punic wars. Today this is a sleepy town just outside of Tunis, where you still can find numerous remnants of the ancient glory. The most impressive site in the town is Antonin Baths, the largest Roman baths outside of Rome. But there are so many more ruins around, as well as other attractions, that you can easily spend the whole day exploring Carthage.

Our final stop will be the charming Sidi Bou Said considered the most beautiful town in Tunisia. It's known for its blue and white buildings, flowers and stunning panoramic views. The town is made for wandering around, and with so many picturesque corners is so easy to fall in love with. There are also numerous cafes and restaurants where you can sit down and relax while taking in the romantic atmosphere. Browse at the souvenir shops where you can get some local goods for your memories before returning to your destination.
