Essentials in Tunisia
Beaches: The main beach resorts in Tunisia are located on the eastern coast from La Goulette to Monastir. If you have a Tunisia car hire, consider also taking a trip to the southern island of Djerba. It's usually quieter and the beaches are no less stunning.
Desert treks: The interior of Tunisia is ruthless desert, especially in the south. Make a trip to the towns of Douz or Tozeur where you can take a train that dates back to 1904 and travels through some of the most incredible desert mountain landscapes you can imagine.
Carthage: For history, Carthage is the best place to start. While little remains of the ancient city, it is still a must-see. Ruins here date back to the 6th century BC. The city was almost completely destroyed in the 3rd Punic War.
