Tunisia presents beachside pleasures as well as archaeological sites and intriguing desert life inland. In the south, the island of Djerba is ringed with sandy shores and features Roman remains as well as apple and fig orchards. Tunis, the capital, is both a modern city and an ancient town dating from the 7th century. The centuries–old city of Carthage is nearby, with its Roman baths, amphitheatre and museums. Kairouan is the spiras well as an impressive tradition of carpet making. You can dune ski in the desert, windsurf along the seashore and go camel trekking. Why not watch the sun rise over the Sahara, visit Roman ruins and legendary cities. Then see local life in a hammam or Turkish bath. Tunisia has a range of hostels offering easy access to the many highlights of this absorbing country.
