The Mediterranean is world-renowned for its relaxed way of life, deliciously healthy cuisine, exquisite beaches and 300 days of sunshine a year.

Being lapped by the notoriously azure waters of the Mediterranean yet possessing the intense heat of North Africa, the wondrous sights, smells and experiences you will find in Tunisia will guarantee you have a holiday with a difference in 2013.
