Tunisia is Africa’s smallest country, but it is packed with
enough diversity to fill a continent! Vestiges of former rulers dot the landscape:
the remains of the mighty city of Carthage; Roman ruins that demonstrate what
was once Rome’s richest imperial province; medieval medinas (walled cities) built at
the beginning of the Arabic era; and elegant 19th century French colonial
boulevards. Tunisia’s cuisine is also a delicious mélange – French, North
African, Middle Eastern and Turkish. The stirringly dramatic landscape is a mecca for culture and heritage inclined horseback vacations!
