Save Place
Jendouba, Tunisia
I discovered a couple years ago that if you have a penchant for ancient Roman ruins, it’s far better to go to Tunisia than Italy. The quality of preservation is far superior to many Italian sites and the lack of tourists is more refreshing than...

Outside of Tozuer Tunisia in the middle of miles of dunes lies the now deserted but perfectly preserved set for one of the earliest Star Wars movies. While mostly just facade, the desert's lack of humidity has kept this place a virtual museum...

Tataouine, Tunisia
George Lukas, while searching for a home for the star wars hero Luke sky walker, found the city Tataouine very attractive. Already, he named the galaxy, far far away, the planet Tataouine. So this attractive structure on the photo is a Ksar, a...

January is a lovely time to visit the Roman ruins at Carthage. Fewer people. Cooler temperatures. And, if you are lucky, beautiful blue skies over the adjacent sea. While the ruins themselves are quite small (especially in comparison to Pompeii or...

Save Place
P3, Tozeur, Tunisia
Tozeur's Mosque el-Ferdous can be viewed from almost anywhere in town. Its dramatic brick-laden minaret acts somewhat like a magnet, drawing in both believers and tourists alike. And thus, after our incredible lunch at the Restaurant le Minaret,...
Save Place
6 Rue Ben Mahmoud Boulevard Bab Menara, Tunis 1008, Tunisia
While this lovely restaurant tucked behind hidden walls in the maze-like ancient Medina of Tunis clearly caters to the tourist circuit (please do not expect gourmet fare here), there is one morsel that you absolutely cannot pass up --- the bread!...
