Tunisia is more than an excellent place to play golf in the winter: in a small area you can find real deserts with beautiful oasis, old cities, lots of carpets and fine beaches. Combined with the good climate, warm people and good opportunities for a relaxed holiday make Tunisia an excellent holiday destination.
One of the more striking features of a visit to Tunisia is that every single city you visit seems really old. Tunisia has been a part of Phoenician, Carthagenian, Byzantic, Roman, Arab, Turkish and French empires and they all left their beautiful traces here. Tunis and Carthage date back to pre-roman times, El jem has its own Coliseum. Kairouan is considered a young city; it was founded in the 6th century by the Arabs.
The coast of Tunisia is very beautiful. Coastal towns like Mahdia, Sousse, Sfax, Monastir and Tozeur are definitely worth a visit. The beaches are quite nice. You might try to avoid staying in the big tourist traps on the coast, it is quite hard to appreciate real Tunisian life there.
The south of Tunisia consists mostly of desert. A striking sight in this region is the cave dwellings in Matmata.
Another must do is to take ‘Lezard rouge’. The Lezard is a train from 1920, used in the past by the Bey. The route winds its way through beautiful scenic mountain gorges.
