With an ideal climate and a long and gentle coastline, Tunisia is the northernmost country in Africa, nestled just across the Mediterranean Sea from Italy. Tunisia has, for over 2000 years, witnessed the passage of Phoenicians, Romans, Vandals, Byzantines, Turks, Spanish and French. They came as fugitives and adventurers, to conquer and claim, as warriors and missionaries, traders and farmers, each leaving behind a part of their culture there on the threshold of the Sahara. Aware of their rich historical heritage, Tunisians today exhibit a genuine interest in and respect for others as evidenced in their moderation, tolerance, and hospitality.
