Your timely departure to the UNESCO World Heritage Site city of Carthage will begin with some introduction by your guide to the history and current status of this historical city.

As you go north of the capital, heading from the your port of La Goulette and the old suburb of Kram, you suddenly come upon a vast expanse of meadowland, green in winter and yellow in summer, that is dotted with the remains of walls, heaps of stones and the stumps of still-gleaming marble columns.

Set up in 814 B.C, this wealthy little town is built over the remains of one of the most glorious cities of Antiquity, founded by the Phoenicians in the ninth century BC, destroyed and then rebuilt by the Romans to become one of the most brilliant provincial capitals of their empire.

Also visit the Carthage museum and the hill of Byrsa, an archaeological site where one can see both Punic houses and the reconstruction work undertaken by the Romans as well as an extremely interesting museum.

We include a visit to the Acropolium, the former Byzantine-Moorish French cathedral which is now a cultural centre. Also we will make a stop at the Tophet, the most important shrine in ancient Carthage and the supposed site of human sacrifice.

Moving on to the village of Sidi Bou Said never fails to charm. Here you feel the mix of simplicity and refinement, ordered architecture and wild nature. It is completely blue and white village, one-time summer resort for the inhabitants of Tunis, clinging to the slopes of a hill facing a limpid blue sea.

You'll return to your ship feeling refreshed and inspired!
