Travel through time
History enthusiasts are not the only people who will enjoy learning about Tunisia’s past.

The desert experience
The Sahara Desert is one of the most enigmatic places on earth. If you’ve ever dreamed of immersing yourself in an endless expanse of golden sand dunes, Tunisia is the place to see. Ride a camel at a leisurely pace through the deep quiet of the desert and stop at an oasis for refreshment, Tunisian style. Aromatic spices, couscous and date-based sweets will make your desert adventure even more memorable.
When to go
Tunisia’s Mediterranean climate sees hot summers and cool winters. The country sees an influx of visitors during June, July and August as European tourists flock to the sunny beaches and resorts. Prices are at their highest during this time, so to have the best choice of routes and rates, make sure to book for tickets at least two months in advance.
The spring and autumn shoulder seasons offer ideal conditions for visitors seeking more active holidays or who want to see a quieter side of the country. Prices are slightly lower during the shoulder-season months of April, May, September and October. In the spring, the fruit trees and wild flowers are in full bloom. In the autumn, the trees bear fruit, and although and temperatures are still warm, the beaches see less crowds.
Winters can get cold, though the land is often green and refreshed from the rains. You’ll often find the biggest travel bargains at this time. If you’re heading to the Sahara, then the autumn and winter can be the perfect time for budget travellers to visit as long as they are prepared for cold nights. January and February are the coldest months of the year and have the highest average rainfalls, making even travel to the Sahara unadvisable.
