Here’s what to see during the trip to Tunisia:
The landscape, the flora and the fauna of this country are just one of the reasons to visit it.
In Tunisia there are about sixty protected areas and the environment varies from the Saharian sandy deserts, such as
the Jebil National Park,
to the rocky ones furrowed by deep gorges such as Jugurtha, Lake Ichkeul and salt lakes of the desert (Chott el Je-rid).
The oases of Gabes, Gafsa, Nefta, Tozeur, Chebika are also amzing.
What you could eat and drink in this country
The traditional Berber cuisine of Tunisia is now more international, but no less spicy and you can taste it in the cheap gargotte.
You can taste couscous with various meats (lamb, fish) and tajine (a sort of omelette with stewed meat and vegetables, eggs and cheese, cooked in traditional crock pots, the tajine precisely).
The vegetables used to prepare salads are almost always fresh and good.
Also try the merguez (spicy sausage), the harissa (chili sauce for “fireproof” palates) to spread on bread together with small olives.
Absolutely don’t miss the brick, a very thin crunchy dough, often closed like a panzerotto, filled with meat or tuna and a whole egg.
Lamb is often used to cook dishes such as coucha (spiced shoulder with curcuma and pepper), shorba (soup), berber lamb (with potatoes and carrots)
The desserts are very sweet, often based on honey or dates.
At any time you can drink green tea, but there are also wines and beer (Tunisia produces excellent red and white wines).
Among the spirits there is thibarine (based on dates), bourkha (figs) and laghmi (palm sap).
The climate is subtropical, Mediterranean on the coasts and desert inside, with very hot summers (mitigated by the sea breeze on the coasts) and mild winters.
The best times to go are from March to May and from September to November.
For tours in the deserts, winter is also perfect.
Language: Arabic; almost everywhere French and sometimes Italian are spoken.
Currency: Tunisian dinar – TD – TND

Tunisia is a tolerant Muslim country, especially in the north and in the cities.
We advise you not to expose your body too much (on beaches it is tolerated) and to respect the conditions imposed for entering the mosques.
Tunisian dinars cannot be exported, nor can they be spent in duty free shops, so you should get rid of them before entering the airport.
