Overview

Tunisia is well-known as a package destination but, for those who care to look further than its beach resorts, if offers far more. Beyond the excellent beaches and the rows of comfortable low-rise hotels lies a country of tremendous variety. The north is a landscape of green mountains, rivers and lakes. The south is dominated by arid desert with sporadic green oases and the spectacular dunes of the Sahara’s Grand Erg Oriental.

Read an Excerpt

Known principally as a package destination for holidays in the sun, Tunisia offers far more than this to those who care to look a little further. Behind the excellent beaches and the rows of low-rise hotels, lies a country of tremendous variety. The north has a surprising landscape of green mountains, rivers and lakes, while the south is ruled by the Saharan dunes, powerful scenery broken only by sporadic oases. Also concealed in the country's interior are caves, gorges, waterfalls and salt lakes. Throughout is scattered a staggering total of 250 historic sites, the better known ones served by luxury hotels, as more and more people discover the rewards of looking beyond Tunisia's coastline.
