The holiday season for many is a stressful period for preparation, costs, the organization of the road and the destination that is mostly amounts to local tourist places, perhaps by the sea or some mountain areas. Away from these places there is a whole world waiting for you to discover and it hid some really amazing and unique locations. One of these destinations is Tunis. It is the most developed, the most tolerant and most peaceful country of North Africa. All visitors are welcomed as friends and it offer them the beauty of the Mediterranean in the northern part of the country, as well as an oasis in the desert.
No matter what time of year you choose to go there, bring cream for sunbathing. For safari, bring comfortable shoes and clothes. During a tour of religious monuments you also should be appropriately dressed. However Tunis has always been an attractive destination for tourists around the world with beautiful beaches and historical sites.

Tunis is completely focused on tourism. Today, it has 800 hotels, 7 international airports and eight ports that connect to the rest of the world.

The geographical position of this city makes it for ages to be suitable for the influences of other countries. Also, over three thousand years ago Tunis witnessed the passage of Phoenicians, Romans, Vandals, Byzantines, Arabs, Turks, Spaniards and the French. All they have left evidence of their presence. Tunis has a Mediterranean climate, with hot, dry summers and mild winters. Tour of Tunisia is the best in the spring, from March to May, with warm, but not too high temperatures. Summers are great for the beach, but a summer period in Tunis is high tourist season. So, you must expect higher prices and a bunch of tourists.
