5 Best Landmarks to Visit in Tunisia - North African Treasures

Tunisia may be the smallest country for you to explore in Africa but it still has many things that will occupy your time on a holiday here.


The Tunis Madina

This is the most beautiful part of the country. Back in the day this used to be an Arab town and has quite a lot of historical stories and legends attached to it. Everything about this town, from the architecture to the way it is designed screams, Arabia. This town will be a great place for you to experience the authentic side of the country and it is also a fantastic opportunity for you to get your shopping done. Bargaining is known to be a popular way of shopping in this country and if you are good at this you will be able to get some products at great prices. If you are put up at one of the centrally located Tunisia hotels the likes of Anantara Tozeur Resort this place is not too far from your stay.



Located quite far away from the busy cities and streets, this part of the country has natural beauty written all over it. If you want some quiet time away from the hustle of the city and just want to enjoy a laid back weekend, this will be a great choice for you. Located at the foothills of a popular mountain this is an oasis of paradise indeed. With palm trees that seem to go on infinitely, Chebika is a haven for the chill traveller in Tunisia.



Located in the coastal part of Tunisia, this is a little strip that is a popular tourist destination. At one point in history, this was nothing but a fishing village that was surrounded by lemon groves. Today, this seaside destination is a popular resort town and has many luxury properties on it. The beaches found in this part of the country are exquisite, to say the least, and the water here is pleasantly warm throughout the year making it perfect for you to take a dip in any time of the day.


Sidi Bou Said

If you are a photographer who is on a holiday in this part of Africa then this place will offer you some great photo opportunities. Located right on top of a cliff this place has some of the most beautiful traditional buildings which are coloured mostly in white with a little bit of blue. The style of these buildings and the colour theme used here will remind you of the popular photographs taken in Santorini, Greece.


The Sahara

No holiday in Africa, especially in this part of Africa, is complete without you experiencing the vast desert. The Sahara Desert is the biggest desert in the world and the best part of it is actually found in Tunisia. You will be able to choose from many tours and excursions that are offered in the country and regardless of what kind of tour you choose the experience will be well worth your time as this desert is a magical place indeed.
