Kairouan

 
Kairouan Kairouan is an important religious center in Tunisia, some guidebooks even call it the fourth holiest city of Islam. This is no doubt an exaggeration, but it is a fact that Kairouan was the oldest center of the Moslems in the Maghreb. Among the major attractions you find the Great Mosque, dating all the way back to around 670 AD. Even if it's been modified and restored many times, the lower part of the minaret is thought to be dating back to the constructions of early 8th century, and if this is true, then it's the oldest standing minaret in the world. Built for the first time 1200 years ago, the Aghlabid basins, are worth the detour just north of town centre. These are no longer serving any use, but was once ...
 

Bizerte

 
Bizerte Bizerte is located in the north of Tunisia, approx. 65km north of Tunis. It is the the largest city north of the capital. Bizerte is not on the tourist track so you may actually have a chance to see some real Tunisia here. The main other reasons to come here are the unspoiled traditional quarter of the old port and the presence of a couple of good beaches in the area.

Carthage

 
Carthage Carthage est delenda - Carthago needs to be destroyed, that's what the Roman Senator Cato used to repeat at the end of every speech. The Romans did what he wanted and flattened the place in 146 BC. After the destruction of Carthage, the city returned to much of its old splendour, but this was first under Roman rule, later it was after the decline of Rome. Actually Carthage survived Rome, and its era stretched over almost twice as many centuries as Rome did. Trying to discover what Carthage, is difficult. Even if the total destruction left some of the structures of Carthage in good shape, the need for building material removed both ancient Carthage and the younger Roman structures. The Punic port is the best pl...
 

Jerba

 
Jerba The Isle of Jerba is situated in the south-east of Tunisia on the Gulf of Gabes. The capital is the town of Houmt Souk. The island is sometimes dubbed Polynesia of the Mediterranean. It has miles of fine sandy beaches and luxury hotels, but also Roman sites, apirates castle, the ancient synagogue of the Griba, and a number of fortress like mosques. There are international flights to Djerba from many European capitals which makes it an excellent starting poitn for exploring the south of Tunisia. Should you be planning on going to Lybia Djerba is probably your easiest and cheapest option. When there were no international flights to Tripoli this is what everyone did. ...
