Guided tour #1: Carthage-Sidi Bou Saïd-Bardo Museum-Medina of Tunis :

Duration : 1 day
Level : easy Easy
We start the tour by visiting Carthage a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Founded by a Phoenician princess in 814 BC, it became the capital of the great Carthaginian Empire. Its strategic location as a gateway to the Western Mediterranean as well as its position as one of the area's few large metropolises meant that Carthage's rule determined the destiny of the world. There will be visits to the Byrsa Hill with its vestiges of Carthaginian and Roman buildings. Next we continue to the Punic ports, including the Salammbo Tophet, where urns containing the ashes and milk teeth of 8th century BC children have been unearthed, and the Antonine Baths, a huge Roman bath complex on the edge of the Mediterranean. Next we’ll visit the picturesque Andalusian village Sidi Bou Said. It is a delightful place for a leisurely stroll through its winding cobbled streets. Its trademark white walls, contrasting sky blue doors and ornate window grids make for wonderful photography. After lunch, departure to the medina, Tunis's historic heart, a UNESCO World Heritage Site ,you will stroll through the winding Medina’s streets, with its souk (door-to-door shops selling all types of local curiosities) one of the world’s great marketplaces and retrace its remarkable wealthy past, you will have also a walking tour within the modern city. Continue to visit the Bardo(*) Museum. This is Tunisia’s National Museum and the repository of the country’s rich archaeological collections, including the world’s largest collection of Roman polychrome mosaics. Housed in an 18th century Beylical palace, it was the first museum to be founded in Africa and contains stunning mosaics and relics from the sites we have visited. End of the tour and transfer back to the port.
