Holy, historic and modern Tunisia tour

Discover the three places that best capture the holy, historic and modern sides of Tunisia. You’ll start at the holy city of Kairouan, the fourth most important site in Islam. Peep through the huge cedar doors of its 9th century Grand Mosque. Marvel at the intricate mosaics of the Sidi Sahbi mausoleum. And explore the bustling medina, perhaps buying some of Kairouan’s famous ‘makroudh’ - date-filled pastries.

After lunch, you’ll continue to El Djem, the world’s third biggest Roman amphitheatre. Head inside this stunning, 30,000-seater coliseum and you’re instantly transported to the days of the gladiators. Expect Goosebumps as you enter its underground tunnel, where slaves and animals were kept before entering the arena. Last visit, Monastir the birthplace of Habib Bourguiba, Tunisia’s revered first president. Tick through the sights on your own, admiring the gold domes of the Bourguiba Mausoleum and the medieval Ribat fortress.
