On a luxury holiday to Tunisia with Elegant Resorts you'll discover a fascinating country, that once existed at the very heart of Roman Africa, full of awe-inspiring natural wonders of desert, beaches and palms, as well as a varied history to explore.
Those who treat the city of Tunis as merely a gateway to Tunisia's other resorts are missing out, for as well as the labyrinthine ancient medina which is UNESCO World Heritage-protected, the city's 'Nouvelle Ville' is not unlike Barcelona's Las Rambla, with charming, broad pavements shaded by trees. Tunis also boasts many cultural gems, notably the Bardo Museum, which has one of the finest collections of Roman mosaics in the world. Perhaps the most essential cultural visit is to Carthage, with its Roman villas, baths and ruins. You can also fit in some golf, shopping or simply laze on some of the loveliest beaches in the Mediterranean. Tunisia is a modern Muslim country where hospitality is very important.
Ramadan, which is observed for one month each year, is a period of fasting when the pace of life is slower, public areas are busier and there are certain restrictions, for example, consuming food in public, drinking alcohol and use of restaurants. In 2013, Ramadan will be celebrated for one month from 9th July.
