Tunisia is more than an excellent place to play golf in the winter: on a small surface you can find real deserts with beuatiful oasis, old cities, lots of carpets and fine beaches. Combined with the good climate, warm people and good opportunities for a relaxed holiday makes Tunisia a popular 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 6-th century by the Arabs.

The coast of Tunisia is beuatiful. Towns like Mahdia , Sousse , Sfax and Monastir are worth a visit. The beaches are quite nice. You might try to avoid staying in the big tourist traps on the coast, however, there it is quite hard to appreciate real Tunisian life.

The west is rugged mountain land. One of the coolest things to do here is take the 'lezard rouge' in Metlaoui . The lezard is a train from 1920 that winds its way through mountain gorges.

The south of Tunisia is mostly desert. A striking sight in this region are the cave dwellings in Matmata . This is where Star Wars was filmed! The island of Jerba is also a great place to go in the south.

As William Shakespeare said it Sir, This Tunis is Carthage!
