Hammamet, with its fortress dating back to the 15th century and old Medina, has developed into a fine holiday resort that still retains a great deal of its cultural background. Well-appointed hotels, to suit all tastes and budgets, are dotted along the beautiful bay.

This modern and luxurious resort is blessed with fine hotels, the majestic Medina Mediterranea, an international standard marina, and many shops, cafés and restaurants. Family entertainment is to be found at Carthage Land Theme Park and Tunisia's first ice rink at The Blue Ice complex.

Tunisia's third-largest city is a great place to be if you are seeking a beach resort with easy access to places of interest. There's a working port right in the centre and a Medina steeped in history. You'll find many hotels on the Route de la Corniche along with the best places to eat.

Port El Kantaoui has just about everything one would expect for a family holiday: a fine beach, sports and leisure activities, shops, cafés and restaurants. Tunisia’s first purpose-built tourist town, centered around a beautifully appointed marina, is one of the country’s most popular holiday resorts.

Skanes, with its seemingly endless sandy beach, is ideal for holidaymakers seeking a relaxing family holiday; connected by Metro train to Monastir - typically Arab in atmosphere, surrounded by the medina, a famous Ribat and the stunning gold-domed Bourghiba Mausoleum.

South of Monastir and connected by Metro train is one of Tunisia's finest stretches of white sandy coastline. Relax free from commercialisation and enjoy freshly-caught fish whilst dining at the working port in one of the reasonably-priced restaurants.

Ideal for a short break, the capital of Tunisia, is a dynamic city where history and modernity intertwine. Enjoy sumptuous restaurants and views of old Tunis from the rooftop terraces and animated souks in the Medina. Home to the Bardo Museum and an easy train ride away from the Roman ruins at Carthage.

Often compared to the French Riviera, the Carthage Coast region features the sophisticated resorts of Sidi Bou Said, Gammarth and La Marsa. Ideal for travellers seeking a relaxing holiday by the beach with easy access to the hustle and bustle of Tunis and the ancient city of Carthage.

For simple serenity and captivating beauty choose Kerkennah. Just one hour by ferry from Sfax, the archipelago has a captivating personality with unusual traditions and few hotels. Slide gently across a glassy sea in a traditional sailing boat and enjoy the welcome tranquility.

The Great South

Temperate winters and long hot summers, the sun-blessed island of Djerba has miles of unspoilt beaches and fine hotels. Fly to Djerba twice weekly from London Gatwick. There are many places to visit on this island and Djerba is an ideal base for exploring the Great South and the Sahara.

Across the causeway from Djerba is the little known seaside resort and town of Zarzis, surrounded on three sides by olive and palm groves. Tourism here is small-scale with just a few hotels scattered along the coastline. Zarzis is an ideal place from which to visit Djerba and explore the southern part of Tunisia.

Ideally located for visiting the towns and villages bordering the Sahara Desert, the past is inscribed on every rock of the majestic Ksours which dominate the whole area. Tataouine is a town where locals, many dressed in traditional attire, meet to exchange goods.

Desert Oases

Vast palm groves stretch majestically along the barren plateaux, whilst in the Atlas mountains, fragile oases grow at the foot of imposing mountain-sides. Magical spots endowed with refreshing orchards and dashed with palm trees laiden with large golden dates. Here you will feel a million miles away from life as you know it where, through man's patience, life was born in the heart of the desert.

Tamerza with its refreshing waterfall is likened to a balcony overlooking the Sahara. You can enjoy a complete holiday in the mountain oases or opt to include a stop in Tamerza as part of a tailor-made itinerary. [60 mins transfer time from Tozeur airport].

In the shade of the vast forests of palm trees which make up the town's oases, fruit trees and flowers have been planted making Tozeur's palm grove a slice of paradise. Gleaming-white mausoleums can be seen protruding from the tree tops and unique handicraft in the souks evokes a reliance on palm trees.

Spacious and luxurious tents, a swimming pool fed by natural spring and a restaurant nestled in a private desert oasis near Ksar Ghilane with enticing views of the Grand Erg Oriental saharan sand dunes. The perfect base for camel trekking, walks and drives whilst exploring southern Tunisia.

Located at the heart of the historical town of Nefta, this new hotel shys away from stereotypical hotel design to create a retreat from the world. Exceptional views over the oasis and palm trees.
