Tunis is the capital and largest city of Tunisia, located in the northern part of the country.

With a population of less than 700,000 in the city itself, the city has a more intimate feel than other capitals in the region.

The Medina of Tunis is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, known for remnant landmarks from its period as a center of the Islamic world – small palaces, mosques, mausoleums, madrasas and numerous fountains.

The much older ruins of the city of Carthage, another UNESCO World Heritage Site, are located on the eastern outskirts of Tunis. These date from the 6th century BC onwards, when the Phoenician city was at the center of a great trading empire covering much of the Mediterranean.

(a) indoors-oriented, and therefore not as linked to weather conditions for enjoyment
(b) relatively physically accessible, while also not being physically demanding.
Featuring mainly indoors-oriented historical or contemporary attractions.

Historic Landmarks
Tunis is divided into the old city, known as the medina, and the new city, or ville nouvelle in French. The large stone-arch "French Gate" is used to be the entrance to the medina. The souq in the medina makes for a good stroll, with tiny shops overflowing with stuff; people selling, buying, milling about; skeletal cats lurking in the shadows; the smells of essential oils, spices, frying food, etc.

The Tunis medina's main routes are labeled "touristique", but even a few steps off the beaten track it's a real, working market. Behind the often scruffy facades hide old palaces, mosques, and Islamic schools.

Archeological Sites
Founded by the Phoenicians, Carthage is an extensive archaeological site, located on a hill dominating the Gulf of Tunis and the surrounding plain. The center of Punic civilization in Africa and capital of the province of Africa in Roman times, Carthage has played a central role in Antiquity as a great commercial empire.

What remains today are vestiges of the Punic, Roman, Vandal, Paleochristian and Arab presence in the area. Major components of the site include the acropolis of Byrsa, a Punic Tophet (sacred area), necropolises, theatre, amphitheater, circus, residential area, basilicas, Antonin baths, and Malaga cisterns.
