¿Do you know why you should visit Tunisia at least once in your life? Tunisia is the crown jewel of Africa, heir of the ancient and legendary city of Cartago, which saw the birth of Mediterranean culture more than 3,000 years ago. The magical Medina and its labirinth-like alleys invite those who visit them during a romantic getaway to discover the Great Mosque and its palaces, souks, small shops and craft stalls, which are communicated through narrow alleyways.

Visit some of the many city rooftops right before the sun goes down. And contemplate the sunset over the Medina, a spectacle that will accompany you during the rest of your lives.

Enjoy the classic pinenut tea in one of the small cafés in the old town. And, of course, indulge in the marvelous Tunisian cuisine, one of the tastiets in the world, in which the classic lamb,  chicken or fish stand out.

Discover the magnitude of the El Djem amphitheatre, the third biggest amphitheatre in the world after the ones in Rome and Capua: visit the villages in which many of the Star Wars movies were filmed, or go to authentic Berebere villages such as Toujane, were desert men and women still live in, these are experiences that will unite you even more after your trip.

In this place, the people’s traditions and mysticism live together with natural landscapes – mountains, desert and beaches- of captivating beauty.
