Silversea Luxury Cruises À TUNIS (La Goulette)

TUNIS (La Goulette)

Tunisia's capital lies at the western end of the shallow Lake Tunis, which opens to the sea at La Goulette. This is the first of a string of beach suburbs that stretches away to the north; it is here that the city's port is located. This coastal area includes the ruins of ancient Carthage and the picturesque suburb of Sidi Bou Said, places that attract more visitors than Tunis itself. As far as capital cities go, Tunis has an easy-going, unhurried air about it. View more

It is a very liberal city by Islamic standards and certainly leading the way in Western trends for the rest of the country. In Tunisia, the struggle for independence didn't take the violent course that it did in Algeria. Ruler Ahmed Bey, who governed from 1837 to 1855, encouraged Westernization and brought in military and other advisors to this end. In 1861, during the reign of Mohammed Sadiq, a constitution - the first in the Arab world - was proclaimed. Until the time of the French protectorate, the medina was very much the center of things. Then, under the French influence, the ville nouvelle (new city) emerged with its major banks, department stores, and administrative services. The main focus of ville nouvelle is the wide, tree-lined Avenue Habib Bourguiba. At its western end, this major thoroughfare becomes the Avenue de France, terminating in the Place de la Victoire and the entrance to the medina.

Excursions depuis TUNIS (La Goulette)

Carthage & Medina

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 45 -minute drive to Tunis. Upon arrival, proceed for a visit to Medina. Built during the 7th century, the Medina is the historical and cultural heart of modern Tunis, and a great place to get a feel for life in the city. Here, take a guided stroll through the labyrinth of narrow allies packed solidly with shops selling everything from tacky t-shirts and stuffed camels to high quality handicrafts. Following your guided tour, some free time is made available to browse the bustling souks.

Next, re -board your coach and drive to nearby Carthage, one of the great cities of the ancient world and an UNESCO World Heritage Site, then proceed for a guided tour inside Antonin Baths.

Carthage & Sidi Bou Said

Begin with a drive to the impressive Ruins of Carthage where according to legend, the city was founded in 800BC by the Phoenicians, and it was from here that Hannibal began his journey. Later it was destroyed by the Romans in 146BC, and then founded again by Julius Caesar to eventually become the Empire's second largest city outside Rome. In these extensive remains we find impressive Baths of Antonius Pius and the amphitheatre, the Punic ports as well the Carthage Museum.

Then enjoy the drive along the coast to the scenic village of Sidi Bou Said, set high on a cliff overlooking the Gulf of Tunis. Its maze of cobbled streets with old stone steps makes it a delightful place to go for a stroll. Gleaming white-washed walls are dotted with ornate, curved window grills that are a local trademark, all painted the same deep blue, and colourful arched doorways that open onto small courtyards filled with geraniums and bougainvillea. There will be ample time to stroll and admire the typical architecture and local handicrafts, or to relax in one of the local tea houses with some refreshing mint tea before returning to the pier.

Dougga & Testour

Upon arrival, guided Visit of DOUGGA archeological site, undoubtedly the most prestigious of Tunisia's archaeological sites.

Several factors contribute to its standing on the Tunisian archaeological scene: its location on a spur dominating the rich MEJERDAH valley (THUGGA, in the Libyc language means green), the size of the site extending over several dozen hectares and covering several historical eras, the vegetation - in particular the many centuries old olive grove surrounding it - and of course, the excellent state of conservation of most of its monuments, some of which, such as the capitol or the theatre, were "restored to their upright position" during a campaign undertaken just after the first world war by prisoners of war.
