Tunis is a magical old city on the Mediterranean coast with an interesting blend of ancient Arab culture and 19th-century French colonialism. In the same city, visitors can see both elaborate Muslim mosques and grand Christian cathedrals, a testament to the history of this city and the people who have called it home. At the heart of Tunis is the medina, the walled old town full of vendor stands, teahouses, and cafes, where you can buy some souvenirs and get a taste of the local food. Visit the Bardo Museum, which features one of the world’s largest collections of Roman mosaics and other pieces from Ancient Greece, Carthage, and Tunisia. And to get a mind-boggling look at ancient history, make your way to the site of the ancient city of Carthage. Here, visitors get a look at the well-preserved ruins of a great city that was once the heart of a powerful ancient empire.
