The capital city of Tunis is an interesting place to stay.

Stay close to the charms of the old medina or look for a high-end hotel by the sea. The ancient city of Carthage is in Greater Tunis and should not be missed.
Urban pleasures are also on offer in the city of Sfax. But for luxury hotels in Tunisia, look no further than the resorts of the coast.

This ancient city was once the heart of the mighty Carthaginian Empire, which ruled a great swathe of North Africa and Southern Europe. Just minutes from the centre of Tunis, it is surprisingly well preserved.
