If you want to plan a trip by yourself, the best choice is to rent a car. There are quite a lot of agencies offering services like this in Tunisia.

The requirements are:

  • a driving license, ideally international;
  • at least 2 years of driving experience.

In big companies these rules are strictly followed, smaller companies turn a blind eye to some non-compliance.

The deposit is usually paid in cash. Holding the deposit on a bank card isn't popular.

Most cars have GPS navigation and tools allowing them to remotely cut off the engine.

The road laws are similar to the European ones and it's necessary to drive carefully because there might be different animals on the road.

Tunisia: a mixture of eras

Once mighty, nowadays Carthage is a prestigious suburb of the capital. Apart from ancient ruins, it's the location of the President's residency.

The parts of old constructions that you are recommended to see are situated on several sites. The total length of the excavation points accounts for 6 km.

The ancient amphitheatre El-Djam in Mahdia is often compared to the Colosseum in Rome. It's only a little bit smaller and its greatness is still striking. Tourists are allowed to go to the underground town, located under the building, wh ere they are shown back rooms and dwellings of gladiators and animal cages.

In the city of Sousse, you can see the striking medieval Medina, woven with narrow ancient streets and surrounded by defensive walls. They're made of stones taken from the ruins of ancient Roman cities. Apart from interesting old buildings, you will see a monastery and the central mosque here. Today, Medina is a tourist centre with numerous shops.

Apart from Medina, Sousse is famous for luxurious hotels, casinos, great beaches and a fine infrastructure designed for leisure activities.

Matmata is an ancient town of caves, in which Berbers still live with their cattle. The temperature indoors is stable during the whole year (about 23 degrees), which is very important when the climate is so hot.

The Bardo National Museum, famous for its rich collection of mosaics, is also situated in the capital. 50 rooms cover different historical periods in chronological order. The exhibition includes highly valuable pieces: mosaics, sculptures, and other excavation findings.

Unfortunately, our trip is coming to an end. Now we only have to return the rented car and go to the airport.
