TUNIS AND TUNISIA

 

 

TUNISIA

        Situated in the North of Africa, Tunisia has an ideal moderate climate with a long, gentle and varied seacoast. Tunisians traded and interacted with many other mediterranean cultures since the 12th Century BC, which enriched the country’s heritage. In fact, the country is endowed with splendid and diversified archaeological sites, each being held in pride and preserved with great love and care.

 

 

TUNIS, THE CAPITAL

            Tunis is located in the Northern East of the country connecting the other cities and towns with an excellent network of tarred roads. With its modern architecture and all the available facilities, the city offers everything a modern capital does. However, as you enter the narrow old streets, centuries slip away and you get into the old Medina with its small and welcoming shops selling different brass, olive wood and leather items, souvenirs and antiques, carpets and jewelery. The Medina also houses ancient palaces, mosques and learning centers standing in  pride and challenging time and conquests.  Regarded as the heart of the Medina is Ez Zitouna, the Mosque of the Olive Tree. The mosque has been for centuries the focal point of life of the old Medina.

 

GAMMARTH

            Gammarth is situated at 5 km away from the golf course of Carthage, 10 km away from Tunis-Carthage International airport, at 11 km away from the cities of Sidi Bou Said, Carthage and La Marsa and at 12 km away from Tunis city centre, 15 km away from the Roman ruins of Carthage and 22 km away from the museum of Bardo.

 

 

CARTHAGE

            The name was given by the Poenicians in the 8th Century BC. It is actually a deformation of “Kart Hadasht”, which means “the new town”. Carthage is situated 15 km North of the capital and easily accessible to visitors thanks to Tunis / Carthage Airport. Together with Salambo, they house masterpieces of Roman and Punic architecture, baths, dwellings, temples, Punic statues, steles and urns. The Roman Theater is still used for the summer festival of Carthage.

 

SIDI BOUSAID

            The name is related to a Muslim Saint who lived there. This breathtaking blue and white village is located 20 km North-East of Tunis. Hanging on the cliffs overlooking the bay of Tunis, Sidi Bousaid is perhaps the most beatiful village of the country. Climbing the narrow streets of the village, visitors often fall in love with the splendid panorama they offer. They usually stop for a mint tea at he “Café des Nattes and then continue up to the “lighthouse” and the fantastic view “Sidi Chebaane Café” offers.

 

MUSEUMS

            Musems hold in pride and great care the very soul of the Tunisian history. They house statues, bronzes, pottery and mosaics that witness the long and diversified history the country has gone through.


BARDO MUSEUM
           
The Bardo Museum is in itself an architectural masterpiece, a Hafside palace that was restored and expanded throughout the years to house precious and priceless acquisitions from different parts of the country and representing the main stages of the Tunisian history from prehistoric to Islamic items. The carefully catalogued and sorted items of the museum answer many questions about the history of the country and trigger a great desire to learn more.


CARTHAGE
MUSEUM
            Located on the Byrsa Hill, the national Museum of Carthage offers a fascinating collection of items and models of Punic and Roman architecture. An ancient burial site lies South of the museum. The ruins as well as the excavations reveal a gloomy phase of history devastated by wars and human sacrifice. Nevertheless, the Baths of Antonin and the nearby Archaeological Park show how greatly the Romans appreciated and preached beauty and order. The Roman Theater, built in the second century AD, can seat more than 5000 spectators. Behind the theater lie ruins of elegant villas of wealthy Romans.
