Tunisia, officially the Republic of Tunisia, is a country in North Africa bordering the Mediterranean Sea. The turmoil of the Arab Spring began in Tunisia in 2010, and the country is today an island of stability in a chaotic region.
Tourism is pretty well developed, and there are several ways to enjoy your vacation in Tunisia, including spending time on the gorgeous Mediterranean beaches, or planning a circuit of the country.
Tunisia has a rich cultural history, ever since antiquity. The Carthaginian Empire, Rome's archenemy, was centred in Tunisia. Its capital, Carthage, is now a suburb of Tunis. Founded by Phoenician settlers from Tyre and Sidon (modern day Lebanon), Carthage was an ancient Mediterranean powerhouse.
