Carthage has been founded in the 9th century B.C. by Phoenician traders of Tyre. It became a large and rich city and thus a major power of the Mediterranean until its destruction in the Third Punic War in 146 BC. Although the center of the Punic culture was destroyed, it continued into Roman times.
Attractions of the city include Carthaginian ruins (an enormous amphitheatre and a cave are among the attractions at these famous ruins) and Carthage Museum.

Carthage Carthage

Sidi Bou Said
It is a town in northern Tunisia (located only 20 km from Tunis). It is known for the extensive use of blue and white colours all over the town. All kinds of souvenirs can be bought in the main street.



It was founded by the Arabs in around 670. It is known for the souk (market place). Products that are sold include carpets, vases and goods made of leather. The city's other main site is the Great Mosque of Sidi-Uqba, it has 414 columns. Almost all were taken from the ruins of Carthage. Previously, it was forbidden to count them, on pain of blinding.


Founded by Phoenicians in the 9th century BC. The city allied itself with Rome during the Punic Wars, thereby escaping damage or ruin and entered a relatively peaceful 700-year stint under Pax Romana. The Arabs seized the city, they renamed the city Sûsa and within a few decades elevated it to the status of main seaport of the Aghlabid Dynasty. In the 18th century, it  was the target of bombardments by the Venetians and the French. The French renamed the city Sousse. It is home to many resorts and fine sand beaches backed by orchards and olive groves. City attractions include: The archeoligical museum, the mosque, the ribat (a fortress from the 9th century), Museum of Kalaout el-Koubbawhere ( it displays well-made presentations show life during Ottoman times), The Zaouia Zakkak (it lies conveniently next to the popular shopping streets in the medina, and offers the finest example of Ottoman architecture in Sousse).
