To the south of the Mediterranean sea is where a Tunisia holiday shall take you. Once there, there is no doubt that you will almost immediately be captivated by it's eclectic history and culture.
Being mainly an Islamic country, as well as having large Jewish, Christian and Catholic communities, religious festivals can have a certain ubiquitous presence. One of the most significant of these is Ramadan, and when the fasting is finally over there is celebration on a huge scale that is impossible to ignore.
With a history strongly influenced by previous French, Roman and Arabian occupations, the country is crawling with monuments and archaeological sites that will undoubtedly enthral even those without a cultural bone in their body. However, those searching for less adventurous activities will certainly find them amongst Tunisia's many soft, sandy beaches that line the coast.
Whatever your preferred flavour of culture, there will be no shortage of it with a Tunisia holiday.
