Day 1: Arrive Tunis. Land at Tunis International Airport under your own arrangements. On arrival you will be met by a M20394 representative and transferred to your hotel. Accommodation: Stay for 4 nights at the Dar Said Hotel (Standard Room)/The Residence Hotel (Sea View Room).
Day 2: Carthage and Sidi Bou Said. Begin the day with a guided tour of the ruins of ancient Carthage. The fame of this ancient city and capital of an empire once resounded across the ancient world. Here Dido wept for Aeneas, Hannibal set forth to conquer Rome, and St Perpetua was tossed by bulls. Visits will include Byrsa Hill, the Tophet, the Punic Ports and Antonine Baths. Following lunch visit Sidi Bou Said, perched high on a hill overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, and one of the most picturesque villages in Tunisia.
Day 3: Tunis and The Bardo Museum. An immersion in medieval North Africa awaits you this morning when you visit the thronging souqs and grand monuments inside Tunis’s walled medina. Discover the beautiful Zitouna mosque; the covered glittering gold souq; and the lavishly sculpted 18th century royal mausoleum, the Tourbet el Bey . After lunch in an beautiful old house, continue to Tunis’ famed Bardo Museum where a world class collection of brilliantly executed Roman mosaics and sculpture is on display.
Day 4: Bulla Regia and Dougga. Some of the greatest treasures of the Roman world lie inland from Tunis in what was the ancient province (and former kingdom) of Numidia. First visit Bulla Regia, once capital of the 2nd century Numidian king Micipsa, and see the well preserved Roman underground villas; then continue to the nearby UNESCO World Heritage Site of Dougga, to explore what are arguably the finest Roman ruins in Tunisia.
Day 5: Farewell to Tunisia. Transfer to Tunis International Airport.
