    Tour Itinerary

    Day 1 Arrive in Tunis

    Upon arrival in Tunis, the capital of Tunisia, you will be met by your driver and transferred to your hotel.  If you have an early arrival, you will visit the historic Tunis medina. The ancient Medina (old city) and ‘souk’ is the traditional market of Tunis.  You will make your way through narrow lanes and alleyways stumbling upon local artisans such as copper, leather and wool workers and intricately designed carpets. You will also pass by the famous Zitouna Mosque.

    Accommodation: 3★, 4★, or 5★ options

    Day 2Tunis / Bardo Museum / Carthage / Sidi Bou Said

    After breakfast, your driver will transfer you to the Bardo Museum for a visit. This museum contains a vast collection of important Mosaics from the Roman period.  There are numerous rooms in this world-class institution offering artifacts from the Punic to Islamic period.  This is one museum that you will not want to miss!

    After lunch, we visit the ancient archaeological site of Carthage, once the largest ancient cities in northern Africa. This site holds ruins from many eras of history: the Punics, Romans, Vandals and Byzantines all made claim to this area at some point. We then continue to the quaint village of Sidi Bou Said, built on and around several hills overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. We will explore its beautifully paved lanes and spectacular sea views.

    Accommodation: 3★, 4★, or 5★ options

    Day 3Tunis / Dougga / Makthar / Kairouan

    After breakfast you will travel to Dougga, the Roman Archaeological site. This enormous site is one of the best preserved Roman ruins in Tunisia, and it is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site. The site overlooks the vast regions surrounding it and it’s not uncommon to see locals herding their sheep through the Roman ruins.

    Continue on to the Roman site of Makthar. Here you will see a Roman Forum, Trajan’s arch, a Vandal Church, and much more. Then you will travel to the important Islamic city, Kairouan. Dinner will be at the hotel.

    When you have completed your visits travel to Sbeitla with its numerous mosaics, churches, baptisteries, temples, baths, and the Arch of Diocletian. Do not forget to leave time to visit the museum. When you are done travel to Tozeur. Dinner will be at the hotel.

    From Chebika, travel to Tamerza which is the largest mountain oasis in Tunisia. Afterwards, travel to Mides where you will have a nice panoramic view of the canyon below. The canyon was used for the filming of Raiders of the Lost Ark and The English Patient. Return to Tozeur for lunch.

    In the afternoon, explore Ong Jemel, ‘the neck of the camel‘. Travel over barren land and see the Sahara dunes and a Star Wars Mos Espa film location. Return to Tozeur for your night and dinner.

Take time exploring this enormous structure and do not forget to go down to the rooms where the gladiators waited their upcoming battle.  There is a museum in the town that hosts a plethora of mosaics. 

    Travel to Sousse and if time remains in the day perhaps you would like to see the archaeological museum and medina. Dinner will be at the hotel.
