With this private tour in Tunis you will enjoy the exciting opportunity to discover the rich history of this place and the country in general by visiting some of the most peculiar sites in the Tunisian capital. This area of the Mediterranean was inhabited since several thousand years ago and one people changed the other in the course of centuries. Today you can clearly see influences of the numerous cultures that thrived in this region and discover artifacts that are hundreds and thousands years old.
First stop of the tour will be the site of the ancient Punic city of Carthage, which is famous for being the capital of the empire that nearly destroyed Rome but ultimately lost the titanic battle and was completely destroyed by the Romans only to be rebuilt by the conquerors and become one of the largest cities of the Roman Empire. Today you can explore the ruins of this ancient city just outside Tunis, and your private guide will tell you a detailed story of this fascinating place.
Next stop is the Bardo National Museum, which delivers one of the largest collections of Roman, Punic and Islamic artifacts in the North Africa. The museum itself is an attraction, since it is housed in a picturesque 18th century palace. You will explore the rich collection and see which cultures have inhabited the area known as Tunisia these days.
Last but not the least, will be the visit to Sidi Bou Said, a village located just outside Tunis. This small village became a major tourist attraction because of its traditional houses and peculiar use of blue and white paint that sets a very relaxing Mediterranean atmosphere to the place. Here you will be able to buy all sorts of souvenirs and walk around the cozy quiet streets in the late afternoon before returning to the hotel.
