About Tunisia

membre 1

One of the most popular tourist destinations in North Africa, Tunisia offers an incredibly diverse range of experiences. Along the Mediterranean coast, resort towns like Hammamet provide an abundance of sun and sea; while the southern Sahara is populated by dramatic desert landscapes, fascinating Berber villages and abandoned Star Wars sets. Tunisia's status during Roman times is evident in the well-preserved ruins at El Jem and Carthage, while Tunis offers all the cultural and culinary opportunities you'd expect from a major capital.

Location

Tunisia is located in North Africa on the Mediterranean coast. It is bordered by Algeria to the west and Libya to the southeast.

Geography

With a total land mass of 59,984 square miles/155,360 square kilometers, Tunisia is slightly larger than the state of Georgia. It is mountainous in the north and extends into the Sahara Desert in the south.

Capital City

The capital of Tunisia is Tunis, located in the far north of the country.

Population

According to a CIA World Factbook estimate, Tunisia's population stood at just over 11.4 million people in July 2017.

Language

The official language of Tunisia is Arabic. French acts as a language of commerce and is spoken by around two thirds of the population, while Berber is the principal language of the south.

Religion

Tunisia's official religion is Islam and approximately 99% of the population identify as Sunni Muslims. The remaining 1% is made up by Christians, Jews and Shia Muslims.

Currency

Tunisia's currency is the Tunisian dinar; for accurate exchange rates, use this online converter.

Climate

Northern Tunisia has a Mediterranean climate with hot, dry summers and mild, rainy winters. The further south you go, the climate gets more arid; and in the southern desert, it is hot, dry and sunny all year round. Rainfall is almost non-existent, though winter nights in the desert can get chilly.

When to Go

As with many destinations, the weather usually determines the best time to travel to Tunisia. If you want to trek in the desert (which I highly recommend) the best time to go is late September to November and March to early May. It will still be chilly at night, but not quite freezing, and the days won't be too hot.
If you're headed for the beach and would like to avoid the crowds, May, June, and September are all perfect. Most tourists visit Tunisia in July and August when the sun shines every day, the swimming is perfect and the beach towns are filled with life.
