Divided into two sections, the ville novelle (new city) and medina (Arabic old city) Tunis is a fascinating city with some of Northern Africa's best markets. The medina, with its winding streets, hidden places and vaulted alleys, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and, not surprisingly, the main attraction for tourists. The ancient city of Carthage is equally accessible from Tunis. Hotels usually include a few meals with your stay, while coffee shops are plentiful, and restaurants often serve the traditional tagine, a dish cooked in a clay pot with a cone-shaped lid. Italian, French and Arabic influences all combine in a wonderful mix as easy to lose yourself in as the warrens of the medina.
The Site of Carthage is located in Tunis, the capital of Tunisia. "Carthage" means "new city" in Phoenician. According to the written records, the ancient city of Carthage was built in the late 9th century BC. After the city was built, the national strength gradually became stronger, the territory expanded continuously, and it became one of the political, economic, commercial and agricultural centers of the Mediterranean region at that time. The main remains of the Site of Carthage are stone pillars, original dwelling houses, and rest rooms. Visitors can overlook the Mediterranean Sea from here and the scenery is beautiful.
The blue and white town, on the Mediterranean cliff north of Tunis, is a beautiful Mediterranean town built in the 13th century. The Andalusian-style lodge of the White House Blue Window is a feature of this blue-and-white town, and today it has become a paradise for the proposer. All the houses here have only two colors, white walls, blue doors and windows.
