Tunisia may be the smallest country in North Africa, but its’ strategic position has ensured it an eventful history. The Phoenicians, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Ottomans and French have all invaded and settled the region leaving a fascinating culture of Roman amphitheatres, Turkish mosques, Byzantine churches, Islamic architecture in medieval walled cities and unusual underground dwellings. It is to this rich tapestry of civilisations, that Somerset Tours and Travel invite you to join them on a very special tour in November 2007.
