More About Tunisia

Tunisia is fast becoming a popular tourist destination, attracting increasing numbers of visitors each year to its white sandy beaches and exotic culture and architecture.

Popular beach resorts include Hammamet, Sousse and Jerba.

As well as exploring the coastal sand, voyages into the desert are popular and a growing sector of the tourist industry.

This is something quite unique, and an experience you won't get in every country. You should ask around your hotel to find the best deals for the town in which you're staying

Whether you are staying in Tunis, Mahdia, the Carthage Coast, or anywhere else in Tunisia, you are bound to experience the wonderful culture and climate Tunisia has to offer.

Remember that with AFerry.co.uk, you are always getting the latest and greatest offers available.

Tunisia Travel Guide

Tunisia has a warm, Mediterranea climate, with mild winters and hot summers. You can experience the French influence on Tunisia in the culture and cuisine of the country and Arab influences can be seen in the ornate architecture. Tunisia also boasts a wealth of archaeological sites, including the famous Roman Carthage.

Travel in Tunisia

As with many Arab countries, the decision to use a car to get around is a brave one. Although the roads in Tunisia are approaching European standard, the driving on them is definitely not (unless one classifies European standard as the driving seen in the centre of Rome at Friday night rush hour). Driving is aggressive, dangerous and the only method of indication is the horn. Your best bet is probably to avoid using a car.

The best way to travel long distance is through using the train network, which is relatively good. The cheapest way to use these railways is through buying a carte bleue which allows you to travel around on all short and medium haul journeys. Long haul requires a reservation a week in advance, which costs a nominal fee.

Around cities, you can either use taxis, which are generally safe and problem free providing you agree your fair in advance, or choose to go by louage. These vehicles are a cross between a bus and a taxi. They travel for 8 passengers, departing when they have 8 passengers, and cost a fixed fare. The quality of driving may however leave you feeling a bit white-knuckled.

Things to see in Tunisia

Tunisia is becoming justifiably famous for its beaches. These are generally clean, white and not too crowded. It is always worth spending a little bit of effort to find that beach that is that bit off the beaten track if you want an extra element of seclusion.

In other sand related activities, voyages into the desert are popular and a growing sector of the tourist industry. You should ask around your hotel to find the best deals for the town in which you're staying.

    • Civitavecchia to Tunis with Grimaldi Lines

      Only use this ferry route out of absolute necessity. Terrible quality, terrible ferry, terrible service, terrible food, terrible organisation. In a word... terrible!

    • Civitavecchia to Tunis with Grimaldi Lines

      The experience was nice, apart from some a small issue the Italian customs as they are very rude. They asked me stupid questions about my car from where I stole it ect ask me to give them the drugs and they can let me go. All these stupid questions because I am young driver in a BMW M6 and going to Algeria. Caused me a lot of hassle. Once on the boat the staff are rude if you don't speak Italian they just walk a way from you. Whatever you ask they answer simply no. They are working an international line and they can not speak English, find it very annoying. The boat over all was kept clean, food great but very expensive - £7 for small bottle of water. Food was a bit better, but take a sandwich with you if you don't want to feel robbed. 5 hours to get there on the ferry but captain sped up during the night and we got to Tunisia on time which was fantastic.

    NEVER travel with Grande Navi Veloci; the worst trip EVER (and I travel extensively)
    • Palermo to Tunis with Grandi Navi Veloci

      I want to preface this post by saying this is my first ever negative post about a company. The Grande Navi Veloci is extremely unprofessional, seriously neglectful and unbelievably stingy. I live and work on the road and have traveled through dozens of countries, I understand problems occur. It’s the way a company chooses to address them that defines their corporate culture. • My ferry was half way to Tunis, Tunisia, from Palermo, Italy, when 2 out of the 3 engines stopped working. It was turned around and returned to Palermo. I spent 10 hours on a boat only to return to where I started. The crew did not take advantage of the 5 hour return time to make any arrangements for the passengers. • Upon docking, we learned that all the cabins had already been distributed. We were expected to sleep in the Pullman room with all of our belongings. The company made no effort to help find us alternative accommodation or transport. It was after midnight and they insisted on holding our passports if we wanted to re-board the boat in the morning (they guaranteed we’d be leaving by 10am). • Anger was flaring and the security was so poor that a passenger stormed the bridge and managed to smash a window in the attempt to commandeer the boat (at least that was the general belief as to why he took the actions he did). The screaming, yelling, pushing, shoving and general animal like behavior of the passengers, being uncontained by security, caused me to feel I would be at risk if I remained on board. • We arrived the next morning on time and waited for hours, only to be told that the boat was not yet repaired, but that we would be sailing later in the day. The Grande Navi Veloci offered us a lunch that would barely pass as acceptable in a hospital or high school cafeteria. Passengers had to fight with the staff in order to receive free bottles of water. • Much later in the day, we were informed that the boat could not be repaired and we would be leaving on a new vessel that would be arriving the next morning. We were told to be ready to leave at 6am. • The following day no reliable information was forthcoming from the staff and we finally boarded the new boat in a disorderly stampede midmorning. • There was one employee on the new vessel that, with the help of an assistant, dispersed the cabin keys to every single incoming passenger. We all waited in a very long line for a long time. An even more inedible lunch was served. Maybe I should have found my own alternative path to Tunisia, but I kept giving the company the benefit of the doubt because I sincerely couldn’t believe they could be this inept, rude and indifferent. Three days of missed tickets and accommodations are annoying, but the physical and mental wear and tear of the journey amounts to a much higher cost. There was no offer of refund from Grande Navi Veloci, although their bylaws declare a 25 – 50 percent refund for delay. I emailed them over a week ago, but received no response. Do not travel with Grande Navi Veloci under any circumstances.

    Not recommendable!
    • Palermo to Tunis with Grandi Navi Veloci

      I'm sorry to say this, but this was by far the worst trip we took over the last years! It already started with the check-in procedure. On our voucher was mentioned to be at the port "1 hour prior to departure (for foot passengers)", while on Grandi Navi Veloci's website it mentioned "4 hours for trips to Tunisia". Of course, at six o'clock in the morning, we were the only people (idiots) standing in front of the office. The "experienced" traveller came around 2 hours prior to the scheduled departure. The ship left with a delay of approx. 2 hours. The trip itself was just terrible. The longest 10 hours of our life. There was just nothing to do on board and the TV in front of us didn't work either. (Tunisian) passengers were either arguing about their seats or just laying on the floor and around the seats, as they didn't have a valid seat reservation. You had to step over them to have a little walk, stretch your legs or just go the bathroom. The bathroom itself was dirty all the time, even though somebody was constantly "cleaning" it. The food was OK, but way too expensive. Maybe we have to blame ourselves a little bit too, that we didn't prepare better for this trip, but it was just not what we expected. Definitely the last trip on this route! In the future we'll take the plane again.
