About Tunis

The capital, Tunis, reflects the country's rich diversity. Its French colonial past is still evident across the city and the country, as it only gained independence in 1956. The most notable evidence is the cuisine, with its blend of sophisticated French styles and Arab spices.

The city of Tunis also contains the remains of what was Roman Carthage, while the Roman ruins at Dougga and El Jem are some of the finest in Africa.

Tunis is home to 1 in 10 of the country's population, combining a modern, European-style city of tree-lined promenades with a vibrant, atmospheric medina listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Other Tunis attractions include the Zitouna Mosque (Great Mosque), the largest in Tunisia, or the National Bardo Museum, which houses one of the world's greatest collections of Roman mosaics. Another popular attraction is the National Museum of Carthage.

About Palermo

Palermo has been the capital of Sicily since long before the Ancient Greeks. It reached its cultural height during the Arab occupation, when it became known for the high quality of its mosques and palaces and their vibrant gardens, many of which are still worth a visit today. Today, it is also the home of several important wine makers.

    Family Ferry Misfortune
    • We had a cabin, overnight, on the way there which worked fine. On the way back we had a day trip, so we didn't think we needed a cabin but we should have got one. The ship had originated from Rome and was packed and disgusting. The toilets were blocked and everything was filthy. Allowing passengers to turn the decks into open sleeping areas is not professional. It was over-crowded and my wife said it felt like we were all refugees. On the way back I tried to upgrade to a cabin. They were available but the system could not recognize my ticket number and therefore not process the upgrade so we were stuck.

    Refugee boat
    • Overcrowded, hours late, nowhere to sit, everyone sleeping on floors, tables & stairs. The food was horrible and expensive, toilets were filthy, cars and lorries overloaded and parked in any direction it was murder trying to get off this boat. I'm disabled, I tried to get off and get my car off but wasn't allowed! No body should have to travel like this in the 21 century.

    A bumpy ride
    • We were glad we reserved a cabin and didn't have to compete for couch or floor space with the many Tunisian laborers on this ship. The rough seas couldn't be avoided and the crew was very professional. Only complaint was being forced to wait for 45 minutes in the immigration line for non italian passports. They finally realized we were from the USA and not North Africa and sent us to the fast EU line. Our passports were checked 5 times during embarkation and someone should have informed us about the arrival process. The additional delay caused a bit of a problem for our vacation since the boat arrived 2 hours late.
