Beauty, novelty, mystery, and an extravagant welcome.

Our tour of Tunisia organized by Mosaic North Africa was all those words…and more! Our time was well-organized and tailored to our interests. In the south, we toured the beautiful beaches of Djerba Island, the synagogue of the oldest Jewish community, in North Africa, outside of Israel, and ancient Berber villages chiseled out of mountaintops.

Trekking through the Sahara on top of a camel, we felt the mysterious power of the desert. As the sun descended there was nothing around us but orange sand dunes. Our Arab guides cooked a delicious supper over an open fire. Above us stars blazed as we’d never seen before.

Moving north to coastal El Jem we explored the magnificent Roman coliseum—built in A.D. 258. Finally, in the capital city of Tunis, we toured the Bardo Museum, home of the world’s largest collection of ancient Roman mosaics. Just minutes from there we walked in Hannibal’s footsteps through the 3,000-year-old ruins of Carthage. In Tunis’ medieval old town we spent two enchanting nights at the Dar El Medina, a charming villa once owned by members of the country’s royal family.

We now think Tunisia is a ‘must’ for every traveler. As for us, we can’t wait to get back!
